Pioneer and Founder

Giuseppe L. Gherzi, after graduating in engineering and philosophy in Europe, travelled to Boston, USA. There he followed courses at Harvard Business School about Scientific Management, based on the teachings of Frederick Winslow Taylor. Highly inspired, Giuseppe L. Gherzi decided to first adapt these methods to the textile industry and subsequently to introduce them to the European market.

Our work is very challenging, sometimes almost impossible, but always fascinating.
