who we are
Argotec is an Italian aerospace engineering company based in Turin, providing a wide range of professional and engineering services. In its advanced laboratories, Argotec has designed and developed many products as well as engineering solutions, usable 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.
