Researching excellence for more than 40 years.

Since its establishment in Genoa (Italy) in 1973, GRUPPO DP has always concentrated its efforts in the development and selection of a range of top quality products.

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.

In the second half of the 80s GRUPPO DP introduced in Italy ASSO DI CUORI, the first revolutionary fishing monofilament entirely made up of fluorocarbon fibers, an absolute technical innovation for the Italian market.

In the early 90s ASSO DI QUADRI, a revolutionary reel monofilament with no memory, redefined the quality standards of the time in Italy and in many European and non-European countries, providing innovative performances.

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.

In 2010 Gruppo DP crowned a collaboration begun in 1988 with a commercial agreement for the exclusive distribution in European and non-European countries of the prestigious Japanese brand TORAY, producer of top range monofilaments, thus integrating synergistically Asso’s offer. 

In 2011, the monofilaments PERLON Made in Germany have become part of Gruppo DP’s product portfolio in sport fishing.
