“October 18th is a date to be marked on our calendar. It’s a day that will change our future”: these were the words with which Pierluigi Testa, Managing Director of Castello Italia, opened Ensemble, the event held with the new owner, the French company ARaymond, a world leader in special fittings and components for the automotive and industrial sectors.

The words of Antoine Raymond, a descendant of the founder and president of the company founded in 1865, were full of enthusiasm: “Castello’s expertise and quality will complete our range of products for the automotive sector […], thus fulfilling our desire to become one of the most prominent players in the fields of cooling, cleaning systems, and autonomous driving support systems.”

Ensemble was the term selected to describe this new chapter in the Lombard company’s history: “We have chosen the French term ‘ensemble’ as our key word, in order to convey all the warmth of its meaning: being together.”
