The Ferradini Bruno company, which specializes in the design and creation of custom printing on leather, was founded in 1959 in Santa Croce sull’Arno thanks to the initiative of two cousins,
Terzilio Pretini and Bruno Ferradini.
Currently, the company is run by Patrizia Ferradini, (the daughter of Bruno who passed away in 2006), who makes use of the valuable help of her son Luca Niccolai, the sales manager. The circle closes with Ugo Vincenzo Melena, a close collaborator
of the company since 1970, print expert and chief technical offi cer of the fourteen skilled workers at “Ferradini Bruno”.
Patrizia Ferradini says: “We provide our clients, mainly luxury fashion brands, complete service with highly technological
processes, the result of continuous investments to adapt to innovations in the industry.”
“Our pride: printing with more than a thousand designs/patterns (coconut, reptile, fl oral); the sectors of reference are the tanneries, leather goods and footwear factories. The study, design
and implementation, and testing of the designs are all done in-house. Aside from every type of leather we also treat fabrics, imitation leather, and upholstery fabrics.”
The “Ferradini Bruno” company has given many satisfactions over the years: “The greatest gratifi cation has been to remain standing despite the crisis thanks to targeted investments that we never topped making. The work is of international dimension so we have to keep up with the times. In addition, over the years, generational changes have all proven to be painless: the insertion of a young and vibrant mentality has undoubtedly improved the company.”
The clear reference is intended for the arrival of Luca Niccolai, randson of the founder, Bruno Ferradini, who brought new life to his grandfather’s company with his ideas, both from the commercial and communication strategy point of view. With such prospects, the future is just around the corner and Ms. Ferradini has clear ideas in this regard: “We do continuous research, ploring new techniques for fabric, man-made materials and leather to look for new work opportunities. We want to expand: we don’t stop and we will never stop!”
