UPM group

TNC joined the UPM Italy Group in January 2020, thus offering our customers an even wider range of services and products.

Our History

Founded in 1940 as a small artisan company for the production of billboards, signs and posters, the company has grown and consolidated over the years. Today the UPM Italy Group is a solid industrial concern and Italian market leader in the production of signs, as well as an affirmed general contractor with regards to turnkey design and installation of points of sale, dealerships, offices and bank counters.

UPM Italy Group has consolidated its presence throughout Italy and started a process of internationalization with the opening of the UPM France branch. It has also acquired the prestigious Stefra carpentry workshop with the aim of internalizing the production of made-to-measure furniture, providing furnishings entirely “made in Italy”.

On 14 October 1940, UPM (Unione Pubblicitari Modenesi) was founded in Modena for the production of advertising posters, billboards and other forms of communication in use at the time.
