Nico 35 years History

Nico was founded in 1977 by Dr. Giovanni Balistreri, through a joint partnership between Nico Service and Borg Service GmbH, in order to create a specialized company primarily focusing on services for the petrochemical industry, such as Catalyst Handling and Chemical Cleaning, following a vast experience with Esso (now ExxonMobil).

At the beginning of the 80's Nico S.p.a. specialized in catalyst handling and built up to be where it is today - among the top companies operating in this field on an international scale.

Today Nico S.p.a. (“NICO” or “Company”) is an Italian Company leading the market of environmental protection services in relation with the refineries and petrochemical industrial operations, such as Catalyst Handling, Chemical Cleaning, Reclaming, Tank Cleaning, Treatment & Waste Minimization and Transport of special waste both hazardous and non-hazardous.
