Footwear manufacturer Taccetti joins the Florence group. It’s the third to join the production cluster for the luxury segment in the last 6 weeks. Florence now has 20 companies, after also having acquired Lorenza Calzaturificio in Filetto (Chieti) and Novarese of Corridonia (Macerata), at the end of September. Now it’s Taccetti’s turn, a footwear maker founded in Montelupo Fiorentino (Florence) in 1954, specialized in the production of luxury formal shoes for women. The company’s director role is now in the hands of the 4th generation of the Taccetti family.
Taccetti joins the Florence group
Taccetti employs 270 people and can produce 2,000 pairs of shoes a year and 410,000 a year. An additional 150,000 pairs of capacity will be added once the group’s 5th production site opens. As far as size goes, Taccetti is one of the largest companies to Join Florence. Stefano and Francesca will take the reins of the company (4th generation) and become CEOs. Until yesterday, the group was led by Carlo and Giovanni. The Taccetti family, in photo, as it was designed by Florence’s business model, re-invested in the group by acquiring a minority share.
“We look for efficiency, quality and sustainability”
“We are constantly searching for companies that believe in efficiency, quality, and sustainability as a fil rouge for a successful entrepreneurial path – commented Attila Kiss, CEO of Florence Group -. Taccetti represents the perfect combination of artisanal know-how and constant innovation”. “Our entrance in Florence represents an important step in our growth path – adds Giovanni Taccetti –. It’s an enterprise capable of evolving and catching the right opportunities when they come along, and in fact gives us additional value to our artisanal know-how”.
