As an international company with Italian roots, owned by Broadview Holding B.V, Arpa Industriale designs and produces solutions that make any interior or piece of furniture original and creative. Together with its sister company Trespa which focuses on exterior architectural applications, the company is market leader in Europe and top 3 player worldwide in high pressure laminates. The production facility and head office in Bra have been at the same location since 1954. Recently the introduction of FENIX NTM®, an innovative material highly appreciated by designers and architects, has changed the laminates landscape.
