C.D.C. Srl is a Tuscan company appreciated for its production of ornamental chains that is experiencing an expansive phase thanks to its
exclusive collection of over 5000 articles used in the leather goods, costume jewellery, clothing and interior design industries.
The company’s strong commitment towards innovation has also attracted the attention of the famous fashion brands. They know that C.D.C.,
with its unique manufacturing process that has often been patented over the years, can develop their custom items.
But what are the secrets and strengths that make this company in the world of accessories so prosperous?
We asked Chiara Pezzatini, one of the owners of the company.
Chiara, what exactly does CDC deal with and produce?
We mainly produce ornamental chains, complete with spring closures, terminals and other metal details upon request. As well, in order to offer
our clients a better service, we have an in-house galvanic bath, so that we can provide our chains with different galvanic fi nishes.
As of 2014, you also have an in-house laboratory: what are the advantages for your clientele?
With the help of advanced machinery, our technical staff can verify the thickness of precious metal deposits, the amount of nickel and cadmium
contained in metals, and the compliance of our products with REACH legislation.
You have always claimed that research is your strong point: how does this specifi cally translate into the work of your staff and your production?
Whenever possible, we strive to anticipate the needs of our clients, keeping up to date with new technologies and having machinery custom made
exclusively for our company. Our goal is to make the idea “in our minds” become something that is not only beautiful, but also functional and that can become industrialized.
