There are genuine Italian stories that make you dream, stories that speak of daily commitment, dedication to work and a passion for quality. One clear mission is in their DNA: to make work more efficient while at the same time more profitable for their customers.
A successful example is the union of Serviform based in Caravaggio (Bergamo) and Fustel Service based in Sesto San Giovanni (Milan). The former company designs, manufactures and distributes high-tech solutions for die-cutters in Italy. The latter has been supplying machines, blades and creasing rules for die-cutters for over 30 years. The process of incorporation through acquisition of Fustel Service by Serviform began last summer and will be completed during 2022.
“Fustel Service is a model company and a strong brand which, thanks to its great seriousness and professionalism, has built up a considerable reputation”, emphasises Franco Foppa Pedretti, Chairman of Serviform Group. “The acquisition allows us to complete our range of products, thus making it unique in Italy”.
Rocco Caffarelli, founder of Fustel Service, adds: “Serviform and Fustel Service are cut from the same cloth. They meet, and if possible, anticipate the needs of customers by offering products and services that border on perfection. I am sure that the brand Fustel Service will have a bright future with Serviform”.
The Serviform Group has its origins in the die-cutting industry thanks to Foppa Fustelle, the historic dieshop founded by Giuseppe Foppa Pedretti back in 1946. In over 70 years of activity, the Serviform Group has expanded its product range to a 360-degree offer. The Group founded Proform from scratch: a design and manufacturing company specializing in CNC machines and related software solutions for diemakers. They also created Serviform: a company dedicated to marketing die-cutter materials.
In 1990, Rocco Caffarelli, a great expert in the die-cutting industry, founded Fustel Service with the aim of offering high quality materials, machines and services. The company has become a market leader at the forefront of the whole sector, not only in Italy but also worldwide. The importance and the scope of this operation is being brought to life in the die-cutting sector by a true union of genuine Italian strength and excellence. By combining forces, and their related materials and services, the two companies together boast more than 100 years of experience and innovation!
Serviform together with Fustel Service now offers a complete range of products and services for die-cutters and diemakers, thus producing countless benefits for customers. An evident example of this is the prompt availability of materials even at a time when supply chains are often at risk. This represents a significant assurance of continuity and an invaluable guarantee.
Although the two companies remain temporarily independent, they have already created important synergies to maximise the quality of service to customers. The creation of a new division called ‘Materials and Machinery for diemakers’ which reports to Fustel Service Srl makes this possible. Its precise aim is to focus on the specific needs of all customers and to optimise the supply of products and services through the strategic use of both company sites, Sesto S.G. and Caravaggio.
The teams of both companies are already working side by side. With complimentary skills they are integrating their many years of experience in the field to provide a top-notch service for all customers.
In fact, the two companies together do not form a mere sum of items and people but the exponential strength of a group. As a group they are always technologically advanced, prepared, competent, and motivated to provide only the best for die-cutters and diemakers in Italy!
