The history of the italian shoe begins here
1947 – The courage to get started
Alberto Bocca sets up a workshop to build shoemaking machinery for local shoe factories. Sagitta soon rises to a prominent position and makes a decisive contribution to the development of the Italian shoe industry.
1960 - Growing success
Italian-made shoes play an important part in Italys export boom of the early 60s. The first foreign orders come in and Sagitta soon proves itself on the foreign markets. The Sagitta brand becomes increasingly well known, in Italy and abroad, and the production department can hardly keep up with the inflow of orders. The old facilities are now too small. Sagitta moves to a new site and the factory is subsequently extended several times.
1970 - Up to now - Keeping up with the times
Europeans and Americans wear shoes and use leather goods that have been manufactured on Sagitta machines. Sagitta technology is a standard of reference for other manufacturers, and the name Sagitta becomes synonymous with technical excellence. Sagitta has a highly developed organisational system with many layers of technological know-how and skill. Process automation is gradually introduced, department by department, depending on the production system adopted, and taking care to preserve the companys traditions and time-honoured roles. Integrated factory methods co-exist with traditional manufacturing and this means that there is scope for a wide range of valuable skills. At Sagitta, quality is a tangible concept considered crucial to customer satisfaction. The entire production process, from manufacturing planning to finished product delivery, is subject to strict quality control procedures that directly involve both process managers and workers. Sophisticated, advanced dimensional testing equipment is used to check finished part size.
