An important challenge that the company, the athletes and the fitness trainer have welcomed with the spirit that distinguishes and unites them.
In fact, for over 70 years Ivars has been the protagonist of great challenges and important goals, through constant commitment aimed above all at enhancing the value of man.
Man being a human resource that contributes to the company and also a customer; always at the centre of the company's evolutionary process.
The people at Ivars, just like the athletes of "Ivars B3L Triathlon" know the meaning of fatigue and sweat, and the sacrifices inherent in each challenge to achieve the best result.
Value comes from every person involved in this enterprise.
The team is therefore the result of a perfect communion of intentions and vision with the company, where man is always at the centre.

Despite the international importance of the company, for us at Ivars, our roots and territory have always been significant."
