The 100th birthday of the historic textile finishing company Manifattura Satta e Bottelli SpA (Satta), Nerviano/Italy, coincides with the merger with Martinelli Ginetto Group, Casnigo/Italy a world leader in the manufacture of yarns and fabrics for household linen and textile home decor.
With the acquisition of Satta, the Martinelli Group further strengthens its presence in the production chain by building on its European leadership in the textile finishing segment that is increasingly based on sustainability, innovation, and quality.
This relaunches Satta and projects it into a future that looks at modernizing production and upskilling its workforce, solidifying know-how built up in 100 years of activity.
This extensive experience, coupled with dyeing and process know-how, and a large fleet of machines suitable for ennobling wide-width textiles, is an important asset that allows for several innovative processes, such as the brand-new antibacterial and antiviral treatments.
Over time, the company has also invested in the update and expansion of a wastewater treatment plant, as a stepping stone for new projects related to sustainability.
With 130 employees, the Nerviano plant produces about 80 million m²/year of cotton, linen, and blended fabrics for third parties, intended for a wide variety of items, from percales to smooth satins and jacquards, quilts, and technical fabrics.
