The Land of Innovation

From the invention of the battery to perfecting the transistor radio, Italians have a rich history of designing products that influence our lives.

In the northwest corner of Italy, there is a small town known globally for developing technology, Ivrea. As home to Olivetti, the creator of the world’s first commercially produced personal computer, its engineering pedigree is superb.

So it’s no surprise that in 1980 CTS Electronics began engineering, designing and manufacturing some of the finest financial automation technology in the world, in the province of Turin, in Ivrea, Italy.

When Opportunity Presents Itself...

ARCA's founder, Mort O'Sullivan, didn’t begin his career intending to revolutionize the cash handling business—he wanted to brew beer. At the age of 26, while studying for a Master’s degree in brewing and distilling an opportunity presented itself.

He pounced and in 1998 ARCA was formed. The rest is history.

The Start of a Great Relationship

And with a handshake, the deal was complete. CTS chose ARCA as their North American cash automation partner. This began an alliance of success.

Armed with beautifully engineered machines from CTS, ARCA connected with an industry that had changed little in generations. Cash automation, a better way to conduct financial transactions, had arrived.
