November 2019

The Fratelli Canalicchio has partecipate to the METS Trade Show 2019, in Amsterdam, from 19-21 November, as a member of the Umbria Nautical Cluster, with the contribution of the Umbria Region

298 employees and a total turnover that exceeds 43 million euros, with growth of 25% in 2018 over the previous year: these are the data provided in May 2019 by the President of Umbria Nautical Cluster Giampaolo Cicioni. Although landlocked, Umbria has a cluster considered a “unique experience in Italy” that comes mainly from the great tradition in mechanics and design.

The establishment of a group of companies in the current cluster has been a valuable tool to support entrepreneurship to address the global crisis that has also affected the nautical sector.

The combination of skills, technologies and know-how has allowed companies to present themselves together and with aggregating force on foreign luxury markets. The tangible result has been the acquisition of orders on important yachts in which the companies of the cluster have worked in synergy and continuity. The President of the Cluster observes, “Presenting ourselves as a group has given us greater control over costs and access to financial and credit instruments”. The system of the entrepreneurial experience of each company represents a growth factor as well as a goal of the cluster.
