Dami, Del Papa and Top Model, founded company chain Nos, with the goal of providing a better client service, the three Marche-based companies of the footwear segment (funds), join forces. They do so by creating a minichain capable of conquering new markets, but also strengthen and speed up production, reducing environmental impacts and develop innovative processes. “We are open to having additional businesses join us”, states Elisabetta Pieragostini of Dami.
The funds’ minichain
Nos is based on the “conviction that social and production factors are becoming increasingly inter-connected and must be faced together, going beyond individualistic behaviors and past misalignments”, reads a press release. Dami, Del Papa and Top Model are convinced that a relational market would increase the attractiveness of the manufacturing activity in the area, giving value to its historical industrial soul. The three companies have different but complementary know-how when it comes to the manufacturing specialization for footwears’ bottoms.
