Specialinsert® Celebrates its 45th Anniversary

by Marco A. Guerritore
Editor in Chief of Italian Fasteners Magazine


Specialinsert®, a leading industrial company specialised in the manufacturing and marketing of fasteners made exclusively in Italy, celebrates its 45th anniversary by exceeding the target of 10 million euros in turnover and rewards its employees with a Mediterranean cruise in October departing from the port of Genoa. A journey along the Italian and French coasts for all 62 employees, including those hired in 2019 and their families, for a total of more than 200 guests.

Cinzia Arduini, CEO of Specialinsert®, comments: “We have shared an ambitious goal with our employees and, thanks to their daily efforts, we were able to not only achieve it, but exceed it.” She continues, “We would like to thank every single employee who has contributed to this milestone, participating in the constant growth of Specialinsert®, with excellent results also in terms of expansion in foreign markets over the last three years. To date, turnover has increased by 11% compared to the same period in 2018: our journey continues on the wave of success and the cruise will be a special time to celebrate the company’s 45th anniversary together.”

Founded in 1974 by Piero Arduini, Carlo Gatti and Dino Lisso, all Specialinsert® products have always been made entirely in Italy at the Turin factory (registered office) and Maerne di Martellago factory (Venice), to which is added the headquarters in Milan which houses the sales offices, warehouses and marketing departments. The second generation of the Arduini and Lisso families, each firmly holding the helm of the Company, continue to follow the path marked since the company’s inception, guiding Specialinsert® along a path of continuous growth that is strongly oriented towards excellence. Key competitive levers are product innovation and Research and Development: Specialinsert® currently has five product trademarks, owns four invention patents and 10 patents for utility models and collaborates with the most prestigious Italian and foreign universities.

Specialinsert® is UNI EN ISO 9001:2015 certified to guarantee its optimal quality management system, and in 2018 the company also obtained the IATF 16949:2016 certification. The alignment with the standards that govern the entire automotive supply chain has given new momentum to the development of the business, once again confirming Specialinsert® as an excellent partner in the industry.

More than 2.5 million euros were invested in 4.0 technologies: the Specialinsert® smart factory pursues maximum integration of processes between the three sites, now monitored in real time thanks to the installation of an ERP management system, where 90% of the plants are interconnected. The Plan 4.0 is completed by the introduction of numerical control machinery and cutting-edge instruments to guarantee 100% quality control of the products, as well as resources allocated to the automation of processes, not only within the production departments but also in the Laboratory, Research and Development and Logistics.

“We strongly believe in the undeniable value of human capital as the engine for our growth and, with a view to the constant improvement of skills, we have allocated significant resources also in the implementation of a structured training plan,” says Cinzia Arduini, and concludes, “Our workforce has grown together with us, and has expanded thanks to the inclusion of new people engaged in strategic business areas with key roles. Specialinsert® intends to continue to actively contribute to the development of the territory in which it operates: further ambitious projects are in store for us and to complete them we will continue to focus on people, leveraging on the talents of our local communities.”
