TECOFIL INTERNATIONAL S.r.l. is a company focused on the treatment and purification of raw water sources (mainly purification systems for both domestic and industrial use).

TECOFIL specialise in the planning, construction and installation of these water treatment plants and systems.

The company started in 2007 in order to directly assist with the utmost efficiency in the international market of water treatment systems, focusing mainly on Cuba and the regions of South America and the Caribbean.

The progress in Cuba started in 2000 supplying water treatment systems for industrial dry-cleaning services for the Società Gaviota Tecnotex. Since, there has been a continual increase in turnover and clientele. The ability to efficiently resolve complex problems relating to the environment is the very basis of our philosophy, and the experience and professionalism of our technicians create the foundations on which the national and international growth of this company was based.

The diverse skills throughout the sector of water treatment show the continual search to reach a higher standard, so that the water treatment systems of TECOFIL INTERNATIONAL can be used on a domestic and industrial scale.

Over the course of the years the name TECOFIL has become TECOFIL INTERNATIONAL, joined forces with local business’ based in Cuba (both as representatives and as technical support) with the aim of strengthening their technical and commercial efforts and company production.

We have a different range of clients who benefit daily from our technology: TECNOTEX, CUPET (EIPP-ABAPET), COPEXTEL, CUBA HIDRALICA, SERVISA, GRUPO ACINOX, ALIMPET, etc.

In the Republic of Cuba there are more than 300 water treatment plants, planned and constructed meticulously by TECOFIL INTERNATIONAL; from small water filters for hospitals to industrial-sized treatment plants for the refining of oil.

For the Cuban market, TECOFIL INTERNATIONAL is an exclusive representative of the following Italian companies: pumps CALPEDA, DRENO y ROVATTI, modular systems FILLING TECHNOLOGIES, water chlorination systems IDROSISTEMI, and mechanical constructions for the treatment of water SIDERURGICA del POLESINE (SIDERPOL).
