Ramponi sets its sights on the Italian Stock ExchangeThe company based in Carbonate (Co) – known in the fashion world for the production of fine synthetic crystals and studs – has become a Public Limited Company (S.p.A.) and is preparing for listing on the Stock Exchange by the end of the year.
Ramponi, assisted by Arpe Group, will make its debut on the AIM market (the market dedicated to Italian SMEs) by the end of 2018. After the listing, the founding family will retain control of the Como-based company, which has a hundred employees. The listing project is consistent with the company’s growth plan and the international development projects. In 2017, Ramponi totalled 17 million in revenues, an increase of 13% compared to the previous year, with almost 20% in exports. Main markets: Spain, Americas, and Japan.
The company is not only famous with all the major brands, but also for its initiatives in support of emerging designers and in particular for the Ramponi Prize, awarded to young Italian designers whose excellence in the fields of footwear, clothing and accessories stand out. The recognition was created by the owner, Alfredo Ramponi, who in 1988 took over the reins of the family business that specialised in the processing of plastic items. His passion for the world of stones and minerals led to the creation of the company’s first synthetic crystal. Over the years, the company also began specialising in laser processes and designer studs, becoming a reference point for ready-to-wear and luxury brands.
