The objective of the people at Arpa is researching, experimenting, and proposing new solutions that create added value to companies, designers, “postformers”, architects, furniture manufacturers, and anyone that uses HPL to passionately create new design stories.



Because there is no design without innovation in a constant balance between aesthetic and performance, between emotion and technique, between simplicity and creativity, innovation and design look to the future - a future to build together, sharing, collaborating, and co-designing with clients and partners.


Because reliability is a moral obligation to Arpa. Over 60 years of history are proof that: "we know what we are doing and we know how to do it well."Arpa's excellence is a matter of fact. In the design of the laminates, in the solutions for the clients, in the choice of the technologies, in the selection of the raw materials, in the manufacturing processes, in the management of people, in the internal organization, in the relationships with partners.


Because passion is an essential ingredient in the creative process. Arpa pursues the research of a tangible and concrete quality with dedication, in all types of applications of HPL. Clients and partners are aware of what Arpa is made of: a team of professionals, but also of people, and this is the best guarantee possible.


Because health and safety are rights. Preserving and promoting the quality of the environment and defending the health and safety of people is always convenient. Accidents can be prevented. At Arpa, we have adopted systems for the constant and systematic evaluation of any possible risk. We have applied safety procedures for the maintenance and management of equipment and processes. We took on the training of our staff so that everyone is responsible for their own safety and for that of their colleagues. Because competent people work safely.


Because innovation is a social process that is not to be followed alone. Goals are only achieved by working together, by being constantly committed to promote and to facilitate synergy at all levels, in a logic of networks and co-designing.. Arpa is not an organization, but an "organism" that lives thanks to the quality and the value of people on which Arpa wants to continue investing.
