schermata-2016-11-18-alle-12-55-54One thousand square meters for the new galvanic plant; just as many dedicated to water recycling and air purification; a research and development laboratory and a classroom with forty-two places. These are just a few of the figures that describe the new four-storey factory that AMF – a leader in the production of clothing, footwear and leather goods accessories for the world’s leading fashion brands – inaugurated in late 2016, next to its historic headquarters in Via Sacchi at Bassano del Grappa.

AMF has developed a fully automated and eco-friendly facility – says Nicole Faerber, president of AMF. The automation and complete separation of operators from the process guarantee no risks. This same care and attention has gone into the limited resources of the Planet, which the fashion industry consumes abundantly, such as water.

The plant has been designed to reuse the water in a closed circuit, purifying it in all the stages and reducing consumption by more than 95%. Only something regenerated will come out of the large chimneys of the plant: clean air to be returned to the Planet.
