ONE FAMILY TEAM, ONE INTERNATIONAL DIMENSION

Born in 1959 in Sardinia, Italy, Giulio Epicureo relocated to France at an early age and went on to study Law. In 1983, at the age of 24, he used his bi-cultural French-Italian influences to his advantage and founded CIE EUROPE. The company then went on to become a market leader in home storage products throughout France and Europe. As the inventor of the Compactor brand, Giulio is always in search of innovative storage solutions to save space and add style to our homes. The latest stroke of genius is the design and development of Walltech: a brand new concept for efficient wall storage. Alongside product development, he never stops improving the design and quality of existing Compactor products, such as the iconic space saving vacuum bags.

ONE FAMILY TEAM, ONE INTERNATIONAL DIMENSION

After studying at IESEG in Lille, Cesar Epicureo went on to train at Bocconi in Milan and the RWTH university in Aix-la-Chapelle. He then joined the family business, bringing with him a significant amount of new skills and practical work experience gained during his studies. Responsible for international development, his excellent knowledge of the company is opening new outlets for CIE EUROPE, ensuring Compactor storage ranges are available throughout the world. His energy and desire to make everyone discover CIE EUROPE products has no limits.

Worldwide presence

As a family run company set up in Northern France, CIE EUROPE has a strong connection to its roots but is always ready to conquer new markets. Today we work with clients across the world, from the United States and Brazil to Japan and Australia. With our manufacturing and assembly plants in Asia and Spain, we can ensure full control of our production. While remaining innovative and creative, we can regulate the quality and cost of our products and monitor our manufacturing and delivery operations.

An international company with European production

Due to developing geopolitical issues and environmental concerns surrounding manufacturing, in 2017 we made the decision to relocate our factory from China to Madrid. All new installations are only powered by using renewable energy sources, such as solar or wind power. Since then, we have made excellent progress:

  1. We have greater quality control over our materials used in production.
  2. We have improved the environmental impact of our production:
    • The Madrid factory has ISO9001 certification which accredits and guarantees the quality of its processes.
    • The relocation has resulted in a four-fold CO2 reduction since transferring from the former China factory.
    • Compactor’s Spanish factory uses a water recirculation system in production which allows machines in operation to save in excess of 1000 litres per day.
    • Our company has FSC certification, which guarantees that all the paper and cardboard used in packaging comes from forests with socially beneficial and environmentally sustainable management.

PATENTED HOME STORAGE SOLUTIONS

Compactor vacuum storage

SPACE SAVER SOLUTION, A STORAGE REVOLUTION

In 2004, with his extensive experience in the storage world, Giulio Epicureo, founder of CIE EUROPE, imagined and designed Compactor, a revolutionary vacuum storage system.

While on a business trip to Japan, he noticed an air suction valve on freezer bags. He came up with the idea to use this system and design a bag to compress linen. He improved his idea even more when he fixed this bag inside a cover, reinforced with cardboard, making the storage of bulky fabrics even easier.

The Compactor was then born! Compactor has twice won French “Trophée de la maison” award. More users every day, it saves tremendous space, his design is fashionable, his quality flawless as promised. Today, 3 million Compactors are sold every year throughout the world.
