The evolution of ASSO Fishing Lines for leasure, sport and professional fishing started in the first half of the 80s and has marked some milestones in the history of monofilaments for fishing.

After more than twenty years of experience in monofilaments for sport and industrial fishing , in the early 2000s Gruppo DP has decided to diversify its business in the areas of monofilaments for gardening and agriculture, also applying to these sectors its approach focused on the specialization of products.


The Company believes that the continuous improvement of its organisation and human and technical resources, of the quality of relations with customers and other persons with whom it deals, as well as of its management of all business procedures, is a fundamental objective to be constantly pursued.

Indeed the Company believes that in contributing through its own work, marked by a sense of responsibility and moral integrity, to the process of development of the economy and civil society, it cannot possibly disregard in the pursuit of its corporate mission an absolute respect of the laws and public regulations and of the principles of fairness, transparency, rectitude, honesty, integrity and good faith.

Gruppo DP S.p.A. holds that reputation and credibility are fundamental corporate assets. In this respect it works to maintain and develop positive ethical relations with its stakeholders: customers and public authorities, employees, trade union representatives and associates, shareholders and those who make investments connected with the Company’s business, its suppliers and other partners.

Therefore, the conduct of Company business must be guided by ethical principles, as unethical conduct compromises the relations of trust between a company and its stakeholders, fostering negative attitudes and bringing on a climate of hostility towards the firm.
