Our Company

 

Solettificio Fontaneto srl has been producing footwear components for over 40 years. The company was established in the early 60s and was founded by Pietro, father of the current owner, Mr. Luciano Fontaneto, as a small leather cutting workshop initially based around the shoemaking area of Gargallo and the Sesia Valley, in the province of Novara.

The company continues to grow and develop in the 70s and 80s, reaching its peak in the mid 90s, when there is a shift towards the Parabiago and Vigevano markets, followed later by Romagna, Tuscany, Marche, Piedmont, Veneto and Campania, which leads the company to producing for today’s most prestigious designers, at the top of fashion and quality.

At this point in time, good investment on machinery and technology, dynamism, continuous research of everything new, lead to our expert advice to customers on research and on the selection of state-of-the-art materials and special work processes becoming a strength and a reliable and solid reference point for today’s Italian footwear industry.

Our company is ISO 9001 certified since 2012
