Humble beginnings

Gentilin srl was founded 40 years ago in Trissino (Vicenza - Italy) in what, then as today, is one of the districts of excellence of mechatronics at European and world level. In just a few years the company has become one of the benchmarks for the production, development and distribution of compressed air products.

Brothers Giampaolo and Giuseppe Gentilin began their activity in 1980 in the garage of their home. The distribution took place first in Italy and then in Mediterranean Europe where the Gentilin brothers learn the peculiarities and needs of the vast compressed air sector. By constantly diversifying and increasing the range of products and services offered, the company gradually expanded becoming an industry benchmark in international markets.

Today the mission of the Gentilin brothers has an important following. The evolution of the company in recent years brings the names of Alessandra, Giorgio and Riccardo Gentilin, who today form the executive team in charge of strategy and operation of the group.

The dynamism and energy of the second generation, combined with the constant focus on innovation and a new managerial footprint have allowed the company to consolidate its presence in the reference markets and to go well beyond by embracing new sectors and channels. The result is a range of unique, uncompromising products and services designed specifically for professionals.
