Leather, thermoplastic rubbers, microporous sheets, crepe, Thunit. These are some of the materials used by Suolettificio F.lli Pellegrino for the making of an ample range of soles and insoles, all designed to meet everyone’s demands, in line with the latest trends. At the core of the philosophy fostered by this family-run business, now at its third generation, there are the experience and skills handed down by its founder, Vincenzo Pellegrino: he opened an enterprise that, over the years, has experienced a steady growth and that has become a prominent name in the sole-manufacturing sector.
In the ‘80s, thanks also to the contribution of his eldest son, Vito Pellegrino, the production of the first single-piece soles took off as well; in the same period, the firm purchased injection machines and, since then, significant resources have been invested in research activities concerning cutting-edge materials and models, so as to fulfil the needs of the clientele and of the ever-changing market. To date, the Suolettificio F.lli Pellegrino Campania-based enterprise owns a 2,500 square meter facility headquartered in Carinaro (Caserta province), housing approximately 50 machines for the production of a virtually infinite range of solutions, both finished and semi-finished, for men, women and children: monochrome, two-tone or even three-tone soles and insoles, made with several materials – the finest and all carefully selected -, ranging from leather to thermoplastic rubbers (TR, TPU and PVC), from microporous sheets to Thunit, available in a wide array of effects and finishes.
The Suolettificio F.lli Pellegrino catalogue comprises both low-cost and high-end products, while constantly monitoring the evolution of market and fashion trends. Each single article features first-rate quality and performance standards, excellence physical-mechanical and aesthetic properties, in full compliance with the current regulations concerning safety and the foot’s wellbeing. Boasting a turnover on the rise, the sole factory has become an internationally renowned enterprise: as a matter of fact, its sales network encompasses both the domestic market and foreign destinations such as France, Spain, Portugal, Eastern European countries like Romania and Poland, as well as South American nations, where it can rely on the support of local distributors.
One of the major goals for the upcoming future lies undoubtedly in the desire to gain a strong foothold in other strategic areas, starting with the USA, so as to effectively promote worldwide the excellence of a “made in Italy” product that combines craft tradition and technological innovation. www.fratellipellegrino.it
