On 23 April CPL CONCORDIA is 120 years old


In 2019 CPL CONCORDIA is 120 years old. We want to announce this achievement by focusing on people and cooperation, but above all on the innate and essential aim of this company to take root, grow, develop and innovate together.

Many initiatives have been organised in this celebratory year CPL CONCORDIA will be bringing them to the attention of its Stakeholders in order to highlight the history and achievements of the company, the work of its people and the local area.

CPL CONCORDIA’s journey began 120 years ago, an arduous, challenging path full of difficult ascents and races against time, but characterised by many successes and comebacks.

CPL CONCORDIA remembers its past, looking to the future by presenting the Energy Environment 4.0 Project: CPL CONCORDIA’s businesses are working together for a revolution in the energy and environment sector throughout its 2019 celebration year.

WORK and TOGETHER: two milestones that have been distinguishing the identity of a Production and Work Cooperative like CPL CONCORDIA for 120 years.
