Takplast Thermoplastic components since 1972
Acknowledged as one of the most qualified and reliable manufacturers in the soles and heels sector, Takplast is able to meet the demands of the leading Italian and European shoe factories. State-of-the-art technology, steady in-house research, partnerships with the best designers, all resulting in a constantly upgraded product, in line with the latest fashion trends.
This is the best way to describe Takplast, Italian company based in Porto Sant’Elpidio, for over fifty years specialized in the manufacturing of footwear components. Since 1972, its core business lies in the production of soles and heels in thermoplastic material, even though the firm’s roots date way back into the past, grounded in the making of wooden heels, thus confirming its reputation as a qualified, reliable partner. Takplast owns an area amounting to approximately five thousand square meters, out of which four thousand are indoor, based in the heart of the Fermo district, one of Italy’s leading footwear clusters: monochrome and two-tone TR soles in extra lightweight materials such as rubber, TPU, TPU light and cross-linked EVA, soles with heels and wedges injected directly onto the mould so as to get a single-piece article.
The array of products comprises also direct injections of platforms in different materials onto Texon insoles, heels in imitation leather, injected genuine leather, pad printed, featuring special bespoke finishes, in addition traditional neutral heels in Styrofoam and ABS for both men’s and women’s shoes. Daily production is around ten thousand pairs of soles and heels, supplied to the most prominent footwear manufacturers, ranging from local ones up to firms based nationwide and throughout Europe. For about eight years, Takplast has been setting up several partnerships with foreign enterprises, especially in India, so as to meet the demands of customers that have moved their production to South-East Asia. Pattern-making operations are carried out in Italy, giving priority to the associated mould-maker and, if necessary, to secondary firms. www.takplast.com
