Company profile

FTC was founded in 1975 in Milan – Italy, as Foreign Trade Company SRL, an import-export company working in more then 20 different developing countries along Africa and Middle East.
Until the 1990s FTC operate as strategic partner for the Italian big building contractors both foreign and Italians, as Impregilo, Cogefar and Salini.

The assiduous frequentation of foreign markets and the flexibility resulting from a very quick business structure, allow FTC to insert in a niche in strong expansion, the food industry and industrial sector, that today characterizes at best the image of the firm in the international market.

Since the early 1990s, the growth of the company has required the creation of more local units in the reference countries, with technical, commercial and financial personnel capable of providing integral solutions in accordance with the biodiversity and tradition of the local industry, as the logistics, financial and commercial practices.

All this has transformed the FTC into a constantly growing “pocket corporation”, ready for new global challenges.

Every morning in Africa, a gazelle wakes up,
it knows it must outrun the fastest lion or it will be killed.
Every morning in Africa, a lion wakes up.
It knows it must run faster than the slowest gazelle, or it will starve.
It doesn’t matter whether you’re the lion or a gazelle-when the sun comes up,
you’d better be running.
