Who we are

arca-labeling-marcatura-laser-marcatore-laser-5

History

arca-labeling-marcatura-laser-marcatore-laser-5

Arca was founded in 1948 by Domenico Fadiga, a former officer in the Italian Air Force. The company began manufacturing labels, which at the time were produced in die-cut cardboard. During the ‘60s, Arca was a market leader in promoting the self-adhesive label revolution in Italy. Since then, there has been continuous growth in consolidated turnover (today Arca is a joint-stock company with private capital), as well as in the quality level guaranteed to customers. In 1975, Arca entered the market of labeling machinery, bolstering it with “print and apply” type labelers about a decade later, embracing thermal transfer technology. The company therefore masters both aspects of self-adhesive technology: materials and machines. Over 60 years of experience. A long history of successes: the best start for a promising future!

Vision

arca-labeling-marcatura-laser-marcatore-laser-5

The future for Arca is providing increasingly beneficial labeling and marking solutions for the manufacturing industry. For every system installed we dream of making a happy customer. Insuring real benefits for our customers is the only path to successfully creating value for the entire community and all stakeholders involved. We respect both the environment and the aspirations of our business partners and staff at Arca: our precious human capital. Together we’ll contribute to establishing a positive international reputation for our company and for the Italian packaging machinery sector.

Quality

arca-labeling-marcatura-laser-marcatore-laser-5

Total quality management

arca-labeling-marcatura-laser-marcatore-laser-5

The quality of machinery begins with the engineering and design phase: scope, requirements, revisions and validation. Everything is documented, in accordance with ISO9001 standards, in order to arrive at a product that guarantees and meets the user’s needs. Hence our design choices: inspired by GAMP norms (Good Automated Manufacturing Practices), ergonomics, easy operation and customization. No unnecessary technical luxuries, but everything’s that’s required to obtain what the customer expects from each product. Today, quality is no longer necessarily weight, thickness and gloss … but rather compliance with specifications. At Arca, excellence is part of our DNA, and perhaps this is the reasons why our machines always have that something extra. Helping your customers earn precious minutes in terms of productivity while guaranteeing safety first and foremost. Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC probably represents the best example of the sum of the details and attention we put in to ensure the safety and health of machine operators. Respecting this logic is imperative. Arca also guarantees the coherent selection of components: the best machinery makes use of top grade components and specially designed quality tested parts. Assembly work is overseen by expert operators who are attentive to every detail, executing their work with passion and pride. Finally, testing phases are conducted by the system’s actual installers, documented with videos and check lists.
The total cost of quality management is nil. And it generates profits, by cutting back on waste, avoiding returns and claims, and above all guaranteeing customer satisfaction. For customers who have chosen Arca

ISO 45001

arca-labeling-marcatura-laser-marcatore-laser-5

For any company, the health and safety of its employees is a priority and strategic goal. That’s why Arca has voluntarily implemented a safety system that meets ISO 45001 criteria, obtaining certification from a third party entity, for both its production divisions: Labels and Systems. rca’s commitment to workers’ health and safety in this area can be summed up as follows:

  • To act responsibly, in compliance with all regulations and provisions of the law.
  • To pursue ongoing improvement for its safety standards, defining specific objectives and verifying their achievement.

Sustainability

arca-labeling-marcatura-laser-marcatore-laser-5

We chose:

Our commitment for the environment

arca-labeling-marcatura-laser-marcatore-laser-5

100% RENEWABLE, 100% ITALIAN ENERGY OF CERTIFIED ZERO IMPACT® ORIGIN

We at Arca Labeling & Marking are aware that a professional, responsible and modern company plays an important role not only for its customers, employees and collaborators, but also for the socio-economic fabric and the territory in which it carries out its daily operations.
Our commitment to sustainability arises from the love for our birthplaces where every one of us leads their professional and private lives.

For these reasons we support with enthusiasm some initiatives for the protection and the development of our territory and invest in internal projects aimed at a constant reduction of the environmental impact of our production activities, as well as in mindful choices in the selection of materials and suppliers, as attested, for example, by the FSC certification we hold.
Operating in a sustainable way is for Arca Labeling & Marking a necessity felt by all company levels and actualized through tangible initiatives.

A COST BEYOND THE ENERGY BILL

arca-labeling-marcatura-laser-marcatore-laser-5

Have you ever thought about how much energy costs? Energy bill entries, of course, are the first things that come to everyone’s mind, but… how much does it really cost to produce, deliver and use energy? The impact on the environment is a hardly considered factor. What are we willing to give up in order to have the energy we need in our daily lives?

ONE STEP AT A TIME, IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION

arca-labeling-marcatura-laser-marcatore-laser-5

We at Arca Etichette believe that sustainability is the cornerstone for building our future: it is now unthinkable to live, move and work to the detriment of the environment. Arca has always shared these values and today we confirm it with an important choice: our offices are now powered by clean energy. We have chosen the energy of LifeGate: 100% renewable, Italian and of certified origin. The residual CO2 emissions from energy production and distribution activities are balanced out by our supplier through the Zero Impact project.
With LifeGate, Arca has an active role as an agent of change in the most important environmental challenge of our time: the energy transition from fossil fuels to renewables.

Arca Etichette is a benefit corporation!

arca-labeling-marcatura-laser-marcatore-laser-5

An important goal has been reached. By Notary’s Deed on 8 April 2021, Arca Etichette S.p.A. acquired the status of Benefit Corporation.
Being a Benefit Corporation gives evidence of “dual purpose” management which, in addition to profit, pursues specific objectives of common benefit, with the aim of generating a measurable positive impact for community, territory and all stakeholders, in a responsible, sustainable and transparent way.
It is an evolution that allows us to protect our corporate, social and environmental values, strengthening our capacity for growth in the coming years.

We believe that if the Value is not common, it’s not a Value.

Our future
