who we are
Argotec is an Italian aerospace engineering company based in Turin whose research, innovation and product development activities use engineering and computing for space applications and renewable energy systems. Particular attention is also given to the field of Human Space Flight and Operations as well as the development of space exploration systems. Argotec is also concerned with the production of nanosatellites and engineering solutions that can be adopted on the International Space Station (ISS), which also have immediate applications on Earth.
The company name “Argotec” was inspired by the Argonauts legend. In Greek mythology, Argo was the ship on which Jason and 50 heroes, called the Argonauts, sailed to Colchis (modern day Georgia) to retrieve the Golden Fleece. The spirit of adventure of the Argonauts is the motivation and the guideline for our activities.
Passion, dedication, innovation, flexibility, speed, positive return on Earth, are the values that have always oriented its activities. Argotec believes in youth in fact the average age of the staff is 29 years. Why did we make this choice? Because young people are very important to us, we want to make them feel responsible, allow them to grow with their ideas and explore their innovative spirit. Those who join the Argotec team have the opportunity to experiment and make a real contribution to business activities.
