Coes was founded in1965, starting of producing shelves and brackets for bathroom fittings and floor-mounted lead siphons. In 1972, COES launched an innovative, patented range of polyethylene siphons, including the washing machine siphon, and a series of floor-mounted siphons for showers and baths. The choice of plastic in particular polyolefin, as a raw material laid the foundations for the company's future success.
The end of the 70s and the beginning of the 80s represented a period of growing diversification and development. Two new product ranges were created: Coestilen®, the system of pipes and fittings for residential and industrial drains, and Coestene®, the range of water and gas pipes, fire-prevention systems and industrial pipe lines.
The global solution
The introduction of polypropylene determined the launch of two new product ranges: Coestherm®, a programme of pipes and fittings made of PP-R for water supply and heating systems, and Coesprene® a programme of pipes and fittings made of copolymer PP for draining water. COES became the supplier of water supply, heating and water draining solutions in buildings, offering the market a "Global Solution". The company attained ISO 9002 quality systems certification.
BluePower and PhoNoFire, have been launched onto the market. These innovative drainage systems are made of copolymer polypropylene enhanced with reinforcing charges to meet the stringent needs in terms of strength and mechanical stress, even at low temperatures, and convey a high level of sound-absorbency to drainage systems.
