The Epta Group was founded by visionary Italian entrepreneur, Luigi Nocivelli. In the aftermath of the Second World War, Luigi began his career in his father’s small workshop before going on to transform it into Ocean, a leading electrical appliance manufacturer.
He became CEO of Ercole Marelli in the Seventies, and it was there that he began to nurture the dream of reviving Italy’s electromechanical industry. This was followed by two decades in which he notched up a string of successes and built his home appliance empire.
His mettle and entrepreneurial flair helped him overcome the obstacles life put in his way. Proof positive of these qualities is the Epta Group (from the Greek ἐπτά, meaning “seven”), which he founded in 2003: forged around the symbolic value of his family and seven children, the Epta Group saw Luigi Nocivelli as its first Chairman.
It was a long journey which started out in a small town near Brescia in Northern Italy, but would eventually take the Epta Group around the globe.
Today the baton has been placed in the hands of the second generation. Marco Nocivelli follows in the founder’s footsteps as he guides Epta forward. Order, humility, delegation, resilience and the ability to hand over the reins: all are cornerstone values at Epta, an edifice whose solid foundations will continue to sustain its growth.
