About Controls


CONTROLS was established in 1968 in a period of market opportunities presented by the construction of the Italian Motorway system, the boom in the use of ready-mix concrete and later by the overseas projects undertaken by italian contractors, served and assisted by us in their needs of testing according to American, English and French standards. Within a short time an extensive distribution network was established and in the mid 70’s the export market already accounted for more than 50% of our turnover with the Middle East playing a major role although we had to compete with English and American producers.

The 1980 crisis in the Persian Gulf dramatically affected our sales to that area. Our attention was focused on the European market which, whilst more difficult to approach, was assuring more stability. At the aim to better assist these demanding markets, we established companies in the U.K., France, Spain, Mexico and more recently in Poland.
This new market demanded a company working to high quality standards and in the early 1990’s we became ISO 9000 registered and an accredited SIT (now ACCREDIA) center for the force calibration of testing equipment.

More recently CONTROLS Group improved the knowledge in advanced testing equipment for asphalt and bitumen creating in 2012 a dedicated division with the new brand: PAVELAB®SYSTEMS, the excellence in pavement testing.

In 2014 the acquisition of IPC Global®, recognized worldwide as the Australia’s global leader in design, development and distribution of advanced pavement testing technologies since 1981. IPC Global® represent the researcher’s choice for advanced asphalt testing equipment and its machines are used by highways departments, national laboratories, universities, oil companies, civil engineer contractors and consulting engineers worldwide.
