Costan, an Epta Group brand, is amongst the winners of the Marco Polo Award. The award, which is now in its 26th edition, is assigned by Unioncamere and the Foreign Trade Centre of the Chambers of Commerce of Veneto. It aims to nurture and promote the business activities of companies from Veneto that contribute significantly to the regional development of foreign trade in the industry, craftsmanship, agro-food, tourism and service sectors respectively.

The ceremony will take place in the headquarters of the Treviso-Belluno Chamber of Commerce on 14 December and William Pagani, Group Marketing Director for Epta will attend the event to collect the prestigious award.

Specifically, Costan was chosen for its excellent performance in the Veneto economy through its strong export focus and the impressive results obtained abroad during the course of 2015. Moreover, the Jury appreciated the constant growth of a brand that has been an international benchmark in the refrigeration sector since the ’70s. In this regard, exports are a key driver for Costan, as confirmed by the figures: 80% of 2015 turnover comes from trade with European and non-European countries. These results were made possible through the Epta Group’s constant investment in innovation with the objective of combining the excellence of its products with low environmental impact growth and, on the other hand, by the presence of a widespread sales network comprising branches and distributors all over the world.
