The history of a success.
For over 40 years, Isolgomma has been producing and distributing products and solutions for acoustic insulation and vibration damping geared towards improving the quality of life.
Isolgomma was founded in 1972 on the initiative of Bruno Grazioli, a pioneer in the development of recycled rubber products. The company began producing impact sound insulation materials at a time when buildings were not required to fulfil specific regulations and quality standards.
Ever since the outset, the company decided to implement cutting-edge technologies, leading to the creation of innovative high-performance products covered by patents, coupled with solutions tailored to any customer need.
Subsequently, the company decided to expand into new sectors, chiefly the rail transport industry. As a result, in 1986 the company delivered its first supply of vibration damping mats for a railway line in Lyon, France. Meanwhile, the existing product range was supplemented with new solutions for the acoustic insulation of walls.
In 1999, the company relocated all its production and research activities to the new plant based in Albettone (Italy), and obtained the ISO 9001 certification in 2001.
Starting from 2002, the company began a fruitful collaboration with the University of Naples – ‘Federico II’, aimed at searching for new products for surface, tunnel and underground railway applications. In addition, the company inaugurated the research centre based in Pozzuoli.
Over the subsequent years, Isolgomma obtained the ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 certifications that have since consolidated the brand’s reputation worldwide.
Further investments for sustaining the R&D Department were made starting from 2008, with the construction of the in-house acoustics laboratory developed in collaboration with the Department of Applied Physics of the University of Padua, in conformity to the requirements of the ISO 140-1 standard.
The study and creation of eco-compatible products, combined with the manufacture of highly performing items, have firmly established Isolgomma’s reputation on both the Italian and international markets in the construction, industrial, transport and special paving sectors, culminating in the first sales office inaugurated in Sao Paulo, Brazil, in 2012.
In the subsequent years, the company became increasingly specialised in the creation of innovative systems for vibration damping and launched new ranges dedicated to building restructuring and renovation.
