2i Rete Gas is the result of an important growth path for external lines started in the early 2000s, which anticipated the expected effects of calls for tender. Therefore, 2i Rete Gas is currently a Group relying on highly skilled in-house resources in the rigorous conduct of its core business, standing out for its ability to pick up and carry through the challenges facing the industry.
