Our History

2017 marks 20 years of APS – in these years we have grown and evolved significantly. Take a look at our Company milestones.

APS was born from the vision of its founder – Antonio Quadrato – who has always said that

“Challenges are our inspiration for action and actions inspire others to dream more.”

APS arose from the heritage left by CTIP, the first Engineering and Contracting Company in Italy founded in 1934. The first steps were not easy, but the small group of Italian engineers guided by their charismatic leader Antonio Quadrato accepted the challenge to find a path to success and to become a worldwide leading Engineering Company.
