Comelz S.p.A.


Founded in 1943, Comelz has been among the earliest companies to create a new industrial season based on the diffusion of CAD systems and numerical control systems and has created a shoe-machinery sector of international excellence.

For over 75 years, it has been renowned world-wide for its high level technology products and its ability to innovate and rethink cutting and processing techniques for leather and textiles.

Comelz’s production is specialized on:

  • Leather industry design: thanks to a totally new CAD, highly compatible and upgradeable; portable on Windows, Mac OS X, Linux; open to every CAD/CAM system
  • Leather & synthetics cutting: The knife cutting technology eliminates the cost of cutting dies while taking advantage of a direct connection to CAD systems to immediately begin production
  • Sheet materials cutting: both the punch and the oscillating knife cutting technologies can replace the clicking presses in the processing of sheet materials for components performing high productivity and flexibility
  • Upper manufacturing: the upper manufacturing product line includes the most modern and advanced tools for the stitching department, to optimize efficiency, productivity and ease of use

The internationalization process that Comelz has planned and put into effect, has led to the creation of branch offices in Europe, India, China, Vietnam, Colombia and Brazil, where the Novo Hamburgo office serves as headquarters for the entire South American area.

After a continuous growth over the past years (with an average annual growth of 16% and large investments in production structures), as of September 2017 Comelz has opened its capital shares to the investors of NB Renaissance Partners  (a division of the American Neuberger Berman fund dedicated to private equity investments in Italy), which has become Comelz’s majority shareholder, thus further growing its industrial potential while still granting continuity in its entrepreneurial leadership.
