HISTORY:The history of Michele Letizia spa begins in 1969, with the first production of needle looms and raschel laces.
After years of growth and huge investments in its headquarter in Cerano (NO), the company, starting from the nineties, began to offer a multi-business production of elastic, laces and fabrics for corsetry and underwear.
In the early 2000s, its main focus turned out to be the core business of narrow fabrics, thanks to a vertical production cycle that started from the yarn and ended with the dyed and packed elastics.
Today the company, with a production area of 25.000 square metres, is a European leader in the production of elastic ribbons for corsetry, underwear and hosiery, producing about 100 million meters a year, with an export share of 40%.
The spirit of internationalization that has always characterized the company mission, strenghtened in 1998 thanks also to the opening of a commercial branch in Poland, which was then turned into a productive one in 2007, for the dyeing and packaging phases.
The continuous renewal of plants and machineries, as well as the training of workers and technicians, are more and more highlighted. These investments allow to take care of the costumers in the best possible way, obtaining advantages in terms of innovation, competitiveness, energy, efficiency, safety of workers and respect for the environment.
The dyeing department, the pride of the company, is able to meet any need in temrs of colors and finishing, with quick deliveries and certified quality.
The entire production cycle supports the concept of design and quality together with that of costumer service and satisfaction, confirming for fifty years till now the reliability and the prestige of the brand
