The Group was founded in 1952 by Luigi Bonzano, who initially worked in the timber sector, with raw material processing as the company’s core business. Soon, the range of services increased and the company began to manufacture and supply wood packaging and containers.
Over the years, the company grew incessantly, expanding its field of action to include logistics services. The 1960s saw a major acceleration in company growth, when Luigi’s son, Piero Carlo, joined the company.
Shortly afterwards, the Villanova company was established, in the city by the same name, near Asti. Its core business was packaging, transport and shipment services to the automotive industry and other industrial sectors.
In the early ‘80s, Piero Carlo Bonzano took over the reins of his division, converted it into an independent company with the name of Argol, and widened its range of activities to offer customers integrated logistics services..
In the 1990s, Argol grew significantly, especially in the Energy Oil & Gas sector.
2000 saw the birth in Guasticce (Livorno) of a new logistics hub, dedicated to the Energy sector, which nowadays is considered a centre of excellence at world level. From then on, Argol has focused more and more on new business sectors and new services, becoming a global benchmark in its field.
In 2012, the two companies created by the Bonzano family, Argol and Villanova, merged, and in doing so combined their different capabilities into a single Group, Argol Villanova, with registered office in Casale Monferrato.
In 2014, the Group asked Oliviero Toscani to restyle the company image. This resulted in a new name for the company, BCUBE, and a new logo, with a huge B (the first letter in the Bonzano family name), a four-colour rendering, and an exponent, 3, to underscore the growth potential of the Group in the sector and suggest the concept of volume, a key element in the field of logistics.
