About us

Our company is born on 10th of July 2012, on Andrea Cannella own initiative, a young entrepreneur and a master’s degree in Computer Science, graduated with honors at the University of Catania.

We work in Scicli, a beautiful Sicilian town, and currently we represent one of the few southeastern Sicilian company that offer consulting and marketing services towards SMEs.

Most people ask us why our company is named Pempton. Well, in Greek physics, the word “pempton” identifies the fifth element added to the four before theorized by the philosopher Empedocles (earth, water, air, fire): pempton was considered as an incorruptible beginning of life and movement, sometimes equated to a kind of intermediate between soul and body. In Aristotle’s physics, later, “pempton” represented the quintessence that compose heavenly bodies, which for its nature was eternal and immutable.

And it’s the quintessence the principle we like to draw inspiration from.

Our ideal is, in fact, proposing solutions that could represent the quintessence, the so-called Aristotelian “pempton”, for our customers. We are fully aware of continuous evolution of technology, but the care and the loyalty towards our clients will always remain the same, unchanging, just like the “pempton”.
