To commemorate 110 years since the founding of Italgas, Turin’s Industrial Union has chosen to celebrate the milestone by honouring Italgas and twenty other founding companies, during a ceremony held in Turin on 27 June.

Expertise, innovation, pursuit of excellence: these are the characteristics common to the companies that accompanied the Industrial Union along its path to the present. Italgas, among them, traces its roots back to before Italy was unified.

When Turin’s Industrial Union was founded, in fact, the company had already been active for about 70 years, since it was founded in 1837 as Compagnia di Illuminazione a Gaz per la città di Torino, and had already started to provide gas to families and industries, thus supporting the progress and welfare of a part of Italy.

The constant renewal and the identity of Italgas are also intertwined with the social and cultural fabric of the city, where it has always had its head office. The award from the Industrial Union thus represents a further recognition of the Company’s work and role for Italy and for Turin.
