Italian manufacturers that are members of the alliance include Etecno 1 srl based in Sala Baganza (Parma), Frap spa from Bruino (Torino), Ghibaudi Mario of Alpignano (Torino), and E.CO srl from Orbassano (Torino), which recently joined the alliance. Two more companies are waiting for approval to join the alliance.
“We started on the right foot, planning the assignment of bonus to the customers that will distribute the products of the Sthenos Alliance partners, says Pierenrico Gottero, sales manager of Etecno 1 and president of Sthenos Alliance. “The incentive program is focused to reward the loyalty to the alliance. Another opportunity is the possibility for the partners to use the existing French and Spanish logistics platforms of Ghibaudi.”
A purchase synergy including packaging, stationery and logistics has been set up.
Different products are being valued avoiding competition among the partners and aiming to increase their market share and to create new jobs.
