Filtec was founded in 1993 thanks to the great experience gained by Mr. Gianfranco Baracco, his sons and other highly qualified technicians with experience and skills in the specific field of cutting systems for molten plastic materials. But also, and above all, Filtec started up by their enthusiasm.
Filtec headquarter is in Badia Polesine (RO). The production floor area is 2000 m² and other spaces are available for a future expansion.
Filtec works in the field of plastic machinery only. Filtec gives utmost attention on everything related to the filtering and pelletizing machines requested by the market more and more customized and special. Filtering and pelletizing cannot be described the Filtec “core business”, as they are the sole and only Filtec field of action. Filtec is specialized in Watering and Underwater pelletizers. Its mission is the feasibility study and the development of complete machinery suitable to pelletize plastic materials having features more and more complex and challenging.
The corporate structure lean and flexible, the staff young and led directly by the members of the Baracco family is available and prompt to grant “tailor made” solutions and quick proper answers for the after-sale service also.
The experience gained along years “in the field” makes people in the engineering and production department very competent and highly specialized. Such departments together with their Team leader Mr. Flavio Dall’Aglio grant the planning and the production of the tailor made machines that are the crown jewels of our company.
Our added value is not only the production of high quality products, but the implementation and control of a production cycle starting from the assessment of the specific needs and proposal made by the customers. The result is the proposal of different solutions suitable to satisfy the specific needs of each and every customer.
Over the years Filtec has built fruitful and enduring relationships with OEMs of extrusion lines and producers of compound and technical polymers. It should not be forgotten the co-operations with big petrochemical plants in Italy and abroad. More and more important customers find in Filtec the ideal partner for the pelletizing matters.
Specialization and flexibility allow Filtec to cooperate on regular basis with important OEMs and with international groups producing plastic materials. Their laboratory technicians are a great support to Filtec by providing technical information about new materials and new working processes.
The ongoing and constant presence in the major international exhibitions for plastic completes the picture and confirms the vocation of the Baracco family towards the continuing improving and growth.
