The early development of the Textile industry in Southern Italy almost thirty years ago convinced Giuseppe Uva and Nuccia Di Pinto to start their business in cooperation with 2CM, at that time a well-known Milan based company, no longer in operation. «We have been working in the Textile industry since 1990» adds Nuccia Di Pinto, partner in the company and international sales manager. «Il Punto proved of being able to develop autonomously while achieving an excellent turnover. At the very start we were only two people; over time the company changed to include 10 employees, taking care of sales, administration and technical service. We have been growing continuously thanks to investments in cutting-edge machines and a skilled staff».
Il Punto offers a wide range of products, like high-tech SWF embroidery machines, Golden laser systems and YongNam rhinestone fixing machines. They also sell number of different machines, such as pressing machines, machines for studs, beads as well as accessories for the textile industry, ranging from low price to high-end products.
As mentioned, a strength of the company lies in the technical service to the machines in their range. «We are very proud of our support – acknowledges Mr. Di Pinto – and we frequently hold basic or advanced courses offered to our customers interested in advanced solutions. We plan our support service to offer a response as quickly as possible preventing a set aside or late reaction. The service staff features the full range of spare parts; they are authorised to follow-up and contact our customers on a business calendar in order to check that the machines we sell are all perfectly operating. A key point of the company is the just in time delivery: best and top sellers are ready products; as soon as our customers have tested and approved a machine, they usually place the order on the spot. This way, they take the advantage of an excellent quality price ratio for industrial machinery and can count on a strong support, when needed ».
As part of a short term focus they are improving the sales network so as to be able to cover the whole domestic market, the fine-tune their after-sale service, the search for new products to offer state-of-the-art high technology apparel and improving local tax incentives.
We asked Nuccia Di Pinto to give us some details of leading products the company offers. «Two products we are very proud of are Golden laser machines and SWF embroidery machines. As regards lasers, our (ad)venture started about 15 years ago. We were among the first Italian companies to believe in this kind of products; we actively dealt with the suppliers and suggested them some changes to exploit the technological development of their machines. Through a steady support, we are now positioned for continued success in sales and service to laser technology items; our position on the market was acknowledged in 2015 with the Golden Laser Award as Best Salespeople in Europe. Meanwhile, our range has grown in different fields including: laser plotters for the textile and footwear industry, galvanometric lasers to process wood, leather, Plexiglas, and Laser Vision New for printed tech textiles.
