The company was set up in Caldogno in 1925 with the name of its founder, Silvio Fortuna Senior, who resumed the business started by his great-grandfather in 1816 and interrupted a century later by the war. It was an artisan laboratory specialising in wood-working, with a vocation for quality.
In 1960 the company became "Arclinea Cucine Componibili", where Arc stands for Arredamento Razionale Componibile (Rational Modular Furniture) and it shifted towards series production, leaving behind its artisan aspect and dedicating all its production energy to kitchen furnishings.
This earned it a precise placing in the sector. Today Arclinea is a prestigious and internationally famous brand with selected specialist sales points worldwide.
Why Arclinea is different?
Guarantee and Quality
Constant pursuit of excellence – since 1925. Arclinea’s great reliability means that all products are covered by a five-year guarantee against factory defects. Quality development starts with careful selection of materials and finished products and it is certified by physical and mechanical testing carried out by in-house laboratory staff and qualified external laboratories (Certo, Catas). A serious company policy guarantees that products, production and procedures are constantly updated in line with a responsible system oriented towards future generations based on a clear principle: the first concrete gesture is to make products that last in time and that truly serve to improve quality of life. On May 24, 2010 Arclinea was one of the first industries in the Italian kitchen sector to obtain OHSAS (Occupational Health and Safety Assessment Series) 18001 Certification, the international standard that establishes requisites for health and safety management at work. The management system governed by the OHSAS is inspired by ISO 14001 safety and environmental standards.
