The socioeconomic crisis brought on by the Covid-19 pandemic has hit the fashion industry hard, not only through the sharp drop in sales suffered by companies in the sector, but also by radically interfering with production and commercial processes. Businesses are now faced with the crucial challenge of both building back sales and internally reorganising according to the new demands from the market, especially when it comes to sustainability and digitalization. This new challenge has been taken up, as ever, by Ramponi, the leading manufacturer of high fashion components and accessories. The company has long been sensitive to the issues of sustainability and committed several years ago to develop low-impact production processes and increasingly innovative products.
The company has not been caught unprepared on the digitalization front either. Its internal processes, all certified according to ISO 9001 and 45001 criteria, have already been adapted to the requirements of the digital era, in the knowledge that speed of execution and efficiency are crucial to company development.
Latest generation machinery and IT tools provide Ramponi with maximum speed and efficiency in design, production, commercialisation and customer service. Alongside this two-pronged approach that is long-standing and constantly updated with new technologies, Ramponi is now focusing on training its staff to guarantee the best service in terms of product quality, efficient services and protection of the end customer. Employing staff highly trained in managing the design, production and commercialisation of products, as well as in implementing confidentiality and intellectual property protection protocols, is further proof of the company’s customer focus. In the knowledge that making fashion is equivalent to making art, Ramponi does not shy away from its commitment to protecting its innovative designs and products in the interest of both the business and its end consumers, registering industrial patents and taking legal action again counterfeiting, in Italy and abroad.
One example of this is the recent recognition of the counterfeiting of an innovative stud protected by two Ramponi industrial patents by a well-known Bergamo-based competitor: after obtaining an injunction and seizure order from the Court of Brescia and following the tests run and expert opinions sought during the lawsuit, a settlement agreement was reached with recognition of compensation for damages and a commitment not to violate Ramponi industrial property rights again.
