Cosa offriamo

In addition to the constant research work in the engineering field aimed at developing revolutionary products and services in the aerospace sector, our team is dedicated to implementing innovative approaches in all business aspects, aimed at constantly improving the balance between private life and work, safeguarding the environment and the surrounding society, and paying attention to new technologies.

Our innovative approach to work involves measures aimed at improving the work-life balance of employees. For this reason, since 2022, we have introduced Freeday, a Friday each month when the company closes at 1:00 PM, giving colleagues half a day off to start the weekend early, without affecting their pay. To the same end, we have adopted flexible working hours and maintained – after the Covid emergency – the possibility of working remotely two or more days a week.

Since its foundation, the company has adopted a plastic-free approach attentive to environmental conservation. Our commitment in this regard increases every year, supported also by the advent of technologies that allow us to minimize the production of paper waste. In this respect, a significant project started in 2023 is the digitization of the company’s key processes, which will lead to better data quality and consequently more efficient monitoring of process quality.

Argotec also cares about the well-being of colleagues, both male and female, and takes care of nutrition by offering a catering service managed by Argotec staff, based on careful nutritional balance and environmental sustainability.
