Boteco (originally Botecoplast), began producing a small catalogue of knobs made of thermosetting material throughout the early 1970s in Italy. Within a few years Boteco was able to develop new technology to supply the Welding industry. Boteco became the industry leader as the largest manufacturer of portable welding machines, owning over 90% of the market share.
This new market opportunity resulted in Boteco breaking away from handle construction and didn’t resume until the early 80s. With new advancements in plastic materials, Boteco was able to make use of the wide range of new possibilities and expand and diversify their catalog of plastic handles.
This only grew throughout the 1990s with laser cutting technology, 3D CAM rendering and the many upgrades that have continued to the present day. Boteco’s main priority is to focus on improving manufacturing while constantly utilizing modern technology to improve the quality and beauty of their handles.
