Eurocoltellerie CEO talks about how the business was born and has grown over the yearsRead More
Why do customers trust Eurocoltellerie so much?
Simply because it puts the customer's needs at the center of its objectives, offering the best quality products along with clear, serious, and punctual service.
For the company, it is essential to demonstrate the utmost attention to detail, flexibility, professionalism, and customer proximity to offer excellent service, as evidenced by over 27,000 customers throughout Italy.
The story of Eurocoltellerie is that of two young men who, at only 15 years old, started working as knife sharpeners and in 1988 opened their first shop in Milan.
The goal of the two partners, Antonio Ferraro and Michele Narducci, was to import the American rental model to Italy, through a company that had a vision of services and industrialization that could be present throughout the national territory with a widespread service.
Growth has been steady over the years and today Eurocoltellerie boasts absolute market leadership, expressing:
20 M in sales
27,000 active customers
4 owned factories covering more than 20,000 square meters.
In February 2021, L'Alberghieria Medagliani (a historical company founded in 1860, a leader in the hotel supply industry) was acquired; thus Eurocoltellerie was able to increase the offer aimed at customers.
Eurocoltellerie is preparing for a new challenge: the European market, and as of April 2023 the Spanish branch in Barcelona is operational
Technological innovation is an essential element of Eurocoltellerie's culture; it is the driving force behind the development, strengthening, and constant renewal of experience
The focus on change has been realized through the inexhaustible source of ideas of the partners, with the creation and application of the most advanced mechanical, computer, and robotic technologies.
Thanks to close collaboration with leading companies in the automation industry, Eurocoltellerie is the only company in the world in the sector to have completely robotized its production, revolutionizing the knife sharpener
Inventing solutions thus becomes an added value on tradition, to produce quality and offer an industrial product with very high-quality standards and decreased costs.
Being close to the customer also means reaching them wherever they are, always offering a quality service. That's why Eurocoltellerie manages the entire logistics chain independently, through a distribution network consisting of branches, warehouses, and over 100 geolocated proprietary vehicles.
Thanks to this network, we can reach all of Italy with a fast, extended, and flexible pickup and delivery service, with ad-hoc distribution solutions to meet the real needs of our customers.
"The knife sharpener is here!"
phrase that heralded the arrival of the sharpening craftsman; but who was this person?
Since its early days, the "arrotino" was the one in charge of sharpening knife blades and razors. He did not have a fixed day or own a shop but rather moved around on a cart equipped with a grinding stone for sharpening. Over the years, Eurocoltellerie has evolved in terms of products, services, and technology, to the point of transforming this professional figure into a genuine global reference consultant for rental, sharpening, maintenance, sales, and any technical need present in the restaurant world, through HORECA and large scale retail trade channels and Normal Trade.
