Ratti e Mantero: a new alliance to defend the textile industry.

In a global scenario in which a strong and rapid reaction capacity is required, Ratti and Mantero return to forge an alliance pact aimed above all at the concrete defense of the supply chain.

The agreement was closed which envisages, upon the successful completion of the due diligence operations currently underway, the entry of the two historic textile companies of Como into the capital of Foto Azzurra, a company that has been working in the production since 1989 (composition, photocomposition and photoengraving ) of supports for screen printing applied to fabrics.

After the agreement of March 2020 – in full lockdown – with which the two companies supported each other for the best management of customers, both today reaffirm the importance of creating a system. The entry into Foto Azzurra is the confirmation of how fundamental it is, in critical moments like this, to involve the entire supply chain to create new possibilities for everyone to restart and to continue to guarantee speed of service and maximum quality even when conditions do not seem to allow it.

The operation is not intended to be exclusive between the two companies but also remains open to other interested entities. The agreement will lead to greater solidity of Foto Azzurra which will continue to offer its services to the market with a view to continuous updating and technological evolution.

“We are convinced – explains Sergio Tamborini CEO of the Ratti Group – that in this period there is a need to move from words to deeds, putting in place concrete actions and projects that safeguard the operations of the supply chain and are an incentive for similar operations of other actors”.

For Franco Mantero, CEO of Mantero Seta, “Square printing has characterized the history of Mantero and Ratti and thanks to this extraordinary technique the two companies have been able to enhance Como silk. Without photoengraving there is no square print and without a square print the Como textile district would not be the same”.

For Ivan Imperial, CEO of Foto Azzurra, “Thanks to this synergy, by combining mutual professionalism we will be able to make an effective contribution to the maintenance and development of traditional printing, the flagship of the Comasco sector.”

Foto Azzurra, Mantero and Ratti have deep roots in the Como textile district and a solid heritage of history and craftsmanship that deserves to be protected and enhanced. Sharing projects and ideas through collaboration between competitors has the common goal of creating a product of excellence made in Como and wants to be a driving force for other alliances and increasingly profitable synergies
