1917 – 1929 Establishement of the Company.
Arson, the company whose name originates from the anagram of the name of its founder, Engineer Norsa, was established in Milan on 24 December, 1917.
In 1929, this name saw the addition of that of a brand of coatings produced for the US market, S.I.S.I. Società Italiana Smalti Istantanei, which gave rise to the full name ARSON-SISI.
1930 – 1939
In those years ARSON-SISI excelled in producing wall paints and coatings for civil and military aircrafts.
1939 – 1945
During WWII ARSON-SISI became the official supplier to the Regia Aeronautica (the Italian Military Air Force) and to the National Fire Brigade Corps of the Regio Esercito.
1946 – 1959
After the war, the production plant was returned to the Norsa family, which later transferred the business to the Masciadri family.
In 1959 the company name changed again to MASCIADRI ARSON SISI SpA.
ARSON SISI was one of the first companies in Italy to produce powder coatings, embracing the potential of a technology with low environmental impact.
ARSON SISI joined the Junionfin family. The takeover was concluded in 1990, when the company changed its name to Arsonsisi SpA.
Arsonsisi achieved its goal of obtaining ISO 9001 certification, subsequently consolidated by achieving ISO/TS 16949 certification in the Automotive sector for the development and production of powder coatings (in 2009) and liquid coatings (in 2015).
The parent company Junionfin concluded a number of important takeovers: the powder coating segment of BASF Coatings, Sebino Industria Vernici SpA (liquid coatings) and Elcrom Srl (anti-corrosive coatings and tinting systems).
Arsonsisi became Arsonsisi Technological Coatings and continued to explore new markets.
Arsonsisi obtained the exclusive licence from Beckers Italia to produce and sell liquid coatings for drums, pipes, LPG tanks and cylinders. In the same year, the company took over the business of Tecnocolor Industria Vernici e Smalti Srl (specialty liquid coatings).
