TRANSLATION OF THE ARTICLE:
“90% of our work is with design studios”. Business abroad of companies based in Brianza district also goes through more traditional channels such as shops and retailers, but the biggest interior design studios and architects have often become the most important partners for those who want to operate on foreign markets. This is also the roadmap followed by GCCOLOMBO, in Giussano, a company that, accordingly to the areas where it works and worked, has almost travelled the world. It was one of the first company in Brianza in the 70s to open the US road. The market of reference is the one of luxury, with a product that is “haute de gamme”, and these are strong points for all the companies in our district (Brianza) that are able to place their products abroad. On this, that’s to say on quality, “Made in Italy” and “Made in Brianza” in particular do not stand comparison and can still beat the competition.
After America, however, attention has come to Russia but also to other emerging countries like India or larger areas like the Middle East, the Persian Gulf and Africa too. “We are manufacturers – explains Sara Colombo – All the processing phases are managed and followed within the company and our premises, with increasingly custom-made products, totally designed as a suit for the customer’s needs”. Nowadays, these are the standard required in this market: a complete service, that tries to meet the most particular requests. GCCOLOMBO has the typical features of the Brianza family business: with Sara, who deals with export and marketing, there are also Stefano (architect and designer) Maria Rosa (general manager) and Giancarlo Colombo (owner and production manager). The staff is then completed by eight workers. One of the strong markets is, however, the Middle East. Qatar, Bahrain, Kuwait are, like the other Nations of the area, particularly sensitive to the lines of Brianza furniture. These are markets reached and developed thanks to the cooperation with representatives and direct constant contact by GCCOLOMBO team. The full service and total attention are offered: not only furniture but also support for the choice of tiles and curtains or to decide for which shade of colour to opt. The service must cover everything, also and above all the after sales steps.
