In a “survival of the fittest” industry, Brutti Fullin Costruzioni’s, (BFC srl) Marco Brutti says the conventional method of doing business is not necessarily the best.
For instance, in the jig-saw nature of the espresso machine manufacturing industry, most often components are sourced off-shore and then assembled in Italian factories. But, this is not Brutti’s way. He stands his ground when it comes to ensuring that all of BFC’s coffee machine components are manufactured at the Scomigo di Conegliano factory in Italy.
Faced with competitors from all over the world, Brutti says the fact that his components – from boilers to connection tubes and stainless steel parts – are all produced on-site, represents an effort that demarks a good espresso coffee machine manufacturer from the best.
“It’s not the easy option of doing business, but it’s a business model I believe in,” Brutti says. “Every day we must solve a problem in our company and we do have difficulties; whether it be the materials we use or a design issue. But, we are happy because we control the quality.”
