ICAM founder Cav. Pietro Paolo Bianco was born on November 8, 1922 and with his visionary spirit and innovation orientation has set the milestones on which, even today, the company rests.

The courage to dare, the innovation orientation and the moral heritage of ICAM are inextricably linked with the history and personality of its founder, Cav. Pietro Paolo Bianco, whose hundredth birth anniversary is celebrated on November 8, 2022.

A pioneer of Apulian entrepreneurship who has decided to take up the challenge of time and has found PLASTICAM in 1957, converted into ICAM in 1968, which will then be the main bet of his life. A bet based on the courage to get out of the comfort zone and start a metalworking activity focused on providing furnishing solutions for kindergartens, schools, and public entities, in Apulia region with a predominantly agricultural vocation.

Between the end of the 60s and the beginning of the 70s, the production of interlocking metal shelving was added to the traditional metal office furniture, which allowed to produce standard parts and components.

To crown his commitment to the company and local labour growth in the area Pietro Paolo Bianco received the title of Cavaliere del Lavoro from Giovanni Leone, the President of Italy.

A constant dedication supported by a continuous desire for innovation and change that, in a few years, has led ICAM to receive many national and international awards, including the award of “The Apollo Gold” in Milan in 1974, of the ‘”Europremio” in Paris in 1974, the “Zappeon Megaron” prize in Athens in 1981, the international prize “La scala del successo” in Rome in 1983 and the admission as a member in the “Italian Academy for economic and social development ” in 1984.

Pietro Paolo got sick and then passed away on 9 September 1999, leaving a precious legacy to his sons and daughter, today at the helm of ICAM: never lose the desire to innovate.

Today, ICAM employs over 110 people and is one of the most solid and state-of-the-art production companies in the sector.

A company that continues to welcome and win new market challenges by researching and experimenting new opportunities.

A company that makes space and makes room in the world, carrying its founder in its heart.
