INDUSTRIAL STARTER was founded in 1962 as a company specializing in the production of raincoats on behalf of PIRELLI. Raincoat branded "INDUSTRIAL STARTER PIRELLI" were worn by virtually all ecological operators in Italy. Definitely more mature people remember the workers who wore these typical waterproof rubberized fabric with hat in black. The real producer as "fassonista" was Mr.. Giancarlo Roncolato, the current President of INDUSTRIAL STARTER Spa, which in 1972 bought the brand and equipment to produce their own. Over the years and with the evolution of technology, the waterproof stitched and taped it has gone to the "wax-sealed" and a widening range of items sold, for as much since 1980 INDUSTRIAL STARTER become an importer of rubber boots.
