Gruppo Florence is the leading integrated industrial platform for luxury brands, committed to creating custom solutions and setting a benchmark in terms of best practices for brands. The group’s mission is to support its companies in industrial development, ecological transition, technological and digital product transformation, as well as knowledge transfer. The goal is to create an ecosystem capable of generating added value within the sectors of clothing, footwear, leather goods, and intermediate processes.
As the first integrated production hub in Italy serving global luxury brands, Gruppo Florence is controlled by the international investment company Permira and significantly participated by entrepreneurs, the management team, and VAM Investments. The Italian Investment Fund also participates with a minority stake. Founded in October 2020 by a consortium of investors led by VAM Investments, the Italian Investment Fund (through the Italian Fund for Consolidation and Growth – FICC), and Italmobiliare, the Group today boasts a solid governance structure based on close collaboration among financial partners, the entrepreneurial expertise of the management, and the high-quality manufacturing know-how of the 27 Group companies.
This distinctive business model has allowed Gruppo Florence to quickly establish itself as a manufacturing hub that embraces the entire supply chain of the international luxury industry, capable of developing industrial and creative synergies between companies to provide customized solutions and innovative services to brands. Gruppo Florence aims to promote an integrated and sustainable supply chain. Led by Chairman Francesco Trapani and CEO Attila Kiss, Gruppo Florence achieved a turnover of over 600 million euros in 2022 with over 3000 employees operating in twelve Italian regions and collaborating with over 70 international brands.
