Interview on L'Economia, insert of Corriere della Sera, to the President and CEO Dr. Michele Moltrasio. Here are some interesting points taken from the article by the journalist Raffaella Polato, whom we thank.

In the purchase choices there is no story: straight (almost always) on the made in Italy. Until the time to look at the label. Of Italian, it turns out, missing often one of the ingredients that together with design make the difference between us and others: the quality of production

In Gabel every single step of industrial processing has «home» in the two Lombard factories: in Buglio, in Valtellina, there is weaving, in Rovellasca there is the headquarters and all the other steps of the production chain. It is the place where ideas are born today as yesterday and where, then, the process that transforms them into products is completed. Dyeing and printing. Finishing and quality control.

Let’s say it this way: the charm of factories like this is a bit 'behind the scenes of Made in Italy. And it has a cost, even if we never think about it. It will be trivial but it is worth remembering, that quality has a price and that, from work to Fisco passing through the import of raw materials and energy, a chain almost entirely tricolor costs (in fact) much more than they cost the same manufacturing processes in Asia or North Africa.

And it is for the opposite strategic choice, that is to stay here in spite of everything, because our model of success is made from an unrepeatable mix, that a company like Gabel ends up being the prototype of what we could define as the paradox of Made in Italy.
Michele Moltrasio, and with him Massimo and Francesca, summarizes it in the meantime with the pride of «being in Italy and being the only ones, by now, still doing everything here».

In the name of national quality production, the production and distribution agreement of the Ken Scott brand between Gabel and Mantero, could prove to be a development model for medium-sized companies of Made In.
