Our history

Attention to detail, product quality and closeness to our customers are the foundations upon which GPC Filters is built.
Solid foundations that have been maintained over time and that have guided a small family business to become a company recognised in Italy, Europe and the world.

The beginnings

In 1974, Vasco Patarini founded GPC in Santena (TO).
At the time, the company was involved in the production of car accessories for large Italian car manufacturers


In 1985, GPC entered the filtration business, specialising in engine air filters.


In 1993, GPC entered the European and international markets.
Hard work, perseverance and innovation have made it possible to expand the customer network beyond national borders and create real partnerships that have helped the development of GPC and the customers themselves.


In 2001, GPC moved to new premises in Poirino (TO).
A fundamental step for the company that testifies to its constant development but always maintaining the attention to detail of a small business.


In 2008, GPC became GPC filters, focusing on the production of cabin air filters for the agricultural, construction, industrial and defence sectors, and establishing strong partnerships in the OEM/OES sector.

Acquisition By HPARTS

In 2020, GPC Filters was acquired by Hparts, a holding company that aims to aggregate Italian excellences operating in the automotive spare parts supply chain for passenger cars, heavy trucks and agricultural vehicles with the objective of becoming a benchmark in the long term.
