The Group's history is marked by a path of development which has always sought to combine the progressive financial growth with the improvement in the professionalism and company culture.
This fundamental choice of considering the company's development as a priority compared to other interests was confirmed in the strategic decisions that favoured investment in research and development, ongoing repositioning, the development of special skills in the various areas of reference and integration between the different operating companies.
Incas was founded in Biella in 1981 and the place and time were certainly not a coincidence. In the early eighties, the Biella district was, as it is now, the heart of the Piedmont textile industry - the area being a world leader in the wool sector: a sector with a strong manufacturing tradition. The first signs of change were noted during these years.
The flood of low cost goods, produced in developing countries, was the final factor that convinced local companies that the only way to stay on the market was to concentrate on quality and high technology.
Among the pioneers of this new direction were undoubtedly Paolo Piana and Ermanno Rondi, who established Incas to design automation and IT systems for the manufacturing sector. Their aim was to integrate effectively with the surrounding territory, which meant the industrial, human and entrepreneurial reality, and not just the geographical area in which they were located.
Today, the Incas Group employs approximately 150 people, which makes it one of the leading Italian companies in the field of automation systems for the supply chain.
