Revomec – headquartered in Trissino, Vincenza province, in the heart of Arzignano’s tanning district – is a young, up-and-coming enterprise: as a matter of fact, established in 2011, the rm has rapidly grown, gaining a strong foothold on both the domestic and foreign market, resulting in top- notch performances and a double-digit growth in the turnover.
“Our main strength,” stated Fabio Gecchele, Revomec’s founder and owner, “lies in the fact that we manage in-house, down to the smallest details, the production of our high-end machines. If necessary, we provide a thorough collaboration to our customers, comprising also the installation, the start-up and assistance: thanks to our most experienced technicians, we can set up the machines, thus ensuring valuable consultancy. Often, we are asked to test the equipment on leather, a critical request that helps to further improve the expertise of workers and operators. We pay close attention to their technical training, acknowledged as a tool to foster the corporate competitiveness.”
Where does this happen?
Abroad, especially in those areas where there are no well-organized tanning districts, unlike the Italian ones. It’s the case of isolated tanneries, with skilled technicians, but with no chance to keep up the pace with the latest industry developments. Furthermore, each tannery around the world processes different kinds of leathers, so it may happen that we have to adjust their machine according to the speci c features of the product.
What are the best-selling machines produced by Revomec?
De nitely the milling drums, that is, nishing machines. More speci cally, D.H.A.R.M.A., MD and MD-SU are the three lines on which we have invested, and we still do, even in terms of research, so as to provide the customers with nishing plants made with top-notch materials and equipped with state-of- the-art technologies. The ef ciency of our drums has contributed in turning them into reliable, strong systems, the perfect solution for several application sectors, ranging from footwear to apparel, from leatherware to multiple fashion articles such as handbags, wallets and accessories, from furnishing to the interiors for cars, aircrafts and ships. Thanks to these machines, it is possible
to process leathers proceeding from different sources and of diverse in type – cowhides, sheepskins, goatskins as well as exotic ones, like reptile, sh and ostrich skins.
You have mentioned research: do you invest much in that eld?
Yes, both in development and in research. In our company, we have a range of machines speci cally implemented for this purpose, managed by a specialized person and placed in an in-house laboratory, that we will further develop in the future. Said gure works in close contact with me as well as with the technical of ce, the latter charged with changing prices and with designing new machines to be launched on the market. This strategy has already paid off, because we can provide a functional design and the use of user- friendly software programmes that ensure the utmost integration with the rm’s automated logistics system: in this way, we can carry out via remote maintenance and diagnostics operations, while easily monitoring process parameters and work conditions.
