PASO continues to be a shining example of 100% Made-in-Italy manufacturing in the field of audio distribution and voice evacuation systems. Their products are becoming more and more appreciated by the international market, which sees the Milanese manufacturer as a solid point of reference in the EVAC sector.
In this era in which technological production is characterized by frequent outsourcing and mass production, PASO stands out for their decision to continue to manufacture their products entirely in Italy. A courageous – but completely natural – choice for a company that for over thirty-five years has been based in Lombardy, in northern Italy, in one of the most prosperous industrial districts in the whole country.
The history of PASO is inextricably linked to this territory: the brand was born in 1973, inheriting the expertise and patents of the Geloso company, a historic Italian manufacturer of radios, televisions, amplifiers and electronic components founded by John Geloso in 1931. And it is in Lainate, a small town located about twenty kilometers from Milan, that this long experience is enriched every day, thanks to the work of a team of about 30 people working in a constantly evolving facility. It is therefore a tradition, but with a focus on the future, as is demonstrated by the constant modernisation of the manufacturing complex, in line with the demands of the “industry 4.0″, which enables high energy efficiency, increased overall efficiency and flexibility in the entire production process at the PASO factory.
Only through 100% in-house production – from the components to the finished product – can installers, designers and professionals in the EVAC sector find the right solutions for each project; making each part in the same factory means guaranteeing a high level of customisation, greater traceability and an after-sales service capable of satisfying any request from the customer. This is where the true meaning of PASO “Made in Italy” lies: it is not just a corporate image strategy, but a bespoke process where attention to detail makes the difference – an even more important aspect when applied to fire-safety and voice evacuation equipment, the proper functioning and installation of which determine the safety of the spaces where we live our lives, such as cinemas, shopping malls and busy public areas.
This is why Paso products – certified according to EN54 safety and fire standards – are increasingly popular also in international markets, where they are installed from North America to North Africa and the Middle East.
This esteem rewards a choice that goes against the trend and proves once again the excellent reputation that Italian industrial production enjoys all over the world.
