Over 50 years of success
Cosmetal has more than 30 years of experience in the design and manufacture of water coolers. Today the company is the most important Italian manufacturer, and an international leader, in the production of innovative solutions for providing and delivering drinking water.
The water coolers, both bottled and point of use, are 100% Made in Italy, and Cosmetal boasts a product range that is amongst the industry’s widest, both in terms of the type of water supplied – room temperature, chilled, hot, sparkling – and the models available – for the home, office, public places, professional studios and firms, schools, canteens, restaurants, bars, etc...
At the start of 2012, the company enlarged the new headquarters by a further 5.000 m2 of production space, for a total of 8.500 m2, and closed the old plant by concentrating the entire production department under a single roof.
Around 70% of turnover comes from exports, in particular from the European Union, United States of America and North Africa. An international focus, together with superior product quality, has enabled this company with the soul of an artisan, deeply rooted in the region, to reach truly excellent levels, becoming official suppliers and providers of customised projects to some of the most important Italian and international purchasing agencies.
Cosmetal was founded in the late 1950s as an artisan business producing keyboards for electronic organs.
In the 1960s, it evolved, developing the necessary expertise to build increasingly technological equipment featuring a significant engineering component.
Towards the end of the 1970s the business diversified its offerings, successfully producing cooling systems for the flourishing plastic moulding industry.
The first Cosmetal water coolers were produced in the mid-1980s.
By the 1990s, Cosmetal was a modern, well-organised company, inspired by a philosophy of quality that would make it into an undisputed industry leader in just a few years.
Striving for constant growth and supported by the success of a strong export business, Cosmetal approached the new century with a focus on a wide range of products and models in order to meet the demands of the market and their customers
Italian roots, flexibility, innovation and attentiveness to customers
MADE IN ITALY: Cosmetal has chosen to preserve its Italian heritage, thus its entire product range is manufactured in the Recanati-based plant. The typical "Italian style" – of which we jealously cherish the imprint and creative power – shines through all of our products.
RANGE: The willingness and ability to adopt a flexible approach enables us to offer a water cooler range that is unique in terms completeness and performance, boasting a variety of models that differ with regard to functions, technology and locations of use.
INNOVATION: Our spirit of observation, coupled with a profound knowledge of the water cooler sector and collaboration with the nearby University of Camerino, enable us to respond proactively to evolutions in the market, and to interact with the latter thanks to a constant flow of innovative proposals.
ATTENTIVENESS TO CUSTOMERS: A highly attentive approach towards our customers – based on a spirit of collaboration, support and partnership – ensures that we are constantly in tune with their needs. We offer technical courses on a regular basis and dedicated customer care that provides a qualified and continuous service.
Quality inspires our every move
The use of high-grade raw materials, such as AISI 316 L stainless steel, the choice of suppliers of proven reliability – all leaders in their reference sector – and the tests we perform on products exclusively with water, not air, are tangible examples of our commitment towards high quality standards.
Every year we invest heavily in new research, continually improving the specification and performance of our coolers from a technological, aesthetic and ergonomic point of view.
Our developmental strategy is based around the following three cornerstones:
hygiene allied to ergonomics, a combination that is as important for end users as it is for service personnel.
product innovation, in terms of the technology deployed and the potential of new solutions.
strategic planning, aimed at supporting the development of new products in line with market trends.
We work in collaboration with highly respected industrial design studios, where leading designers translate our hygienic and ergonomic criteria into workable form
