Inauguration of the new headquarters
Future is now
Inauguration day. Today has been a very special day for us. It would be a day we will always remember since it brought our three generation family into the future. It’s nice to think that what defines our identity are not just solid figures, laboratory tests or exiting racing sponsorships, it’s a much richer story of people who work daily to make things happen. It’s above all a great story of friendship that grew over time.
The company is now lead by the third generation of Polacco family and each generation remained faithful to the same original intentions: doing business with passion, shaking a lot of hands and setting little and big goals with a smile and the enthusiasm of someone loving the job. How far we went from our start in the 30s! We expanded beyond the national boundaries becoming an international leading company in the lubricant market and we became well known as trusted partner in the endurance world. However something never changed. That’s the need to get better and to explore new boundaries. This inauguration means a brand new start and a lot of fresh energy that we want to share with everyone, especially with those who can’t be physically here with us to celebrate.
The new headquarter reflects our very philosophy of openness and transparency. A virtual tour of the restored building would start from the hall that’s the fulcrum of the whole company. A glass tower encapsulates it like a rectangular bell-jar. Above the reception’s desks you will find a wooden bridge with steel parapets that resembles that of a ship. This bridge symbolizes the trait d’union between the past and the future, between the old and the new part of the building. The west wing hosts bigger laboratories and the Purchase Department, while the new east area hosts the Commercial and Logistics Departments. On the second floor you can find managerial offices, meeting and training rooms.
The most unexpected and meaningful thing is but the pictures hanging on the walls. They’re portraits of US, stolen pictures of the employees at work. This is the proof of what the esteem that the company feels for its people. New beginnings are always thrilling and this makes no exception. We have the right determination, a lot of hands still waiting to be shaken and new boundaries to break. The future is today.
