To represent the achievement of sixty years of success, Lafert Group chooses a phrase by Eleanor Roosevelt: "The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams".
A choice not by chance, but because it was spoken by an important woman in history, the American first lady during the world war’s difficult years, an activist who supported a dream called the New Deal that laid the foundations for the fundamental rights of the welfare state.
In 1962 our founders rolled up their sleeves to establish this company, in what was still a difficult era. They believed in the beauty of their dream that today has become ours. Being part of the history of our territory is a source of pride and the growth that was required to become an international reality is today a privilege and a new responsibility. It was a gradual development, but without interruptions, we became part of the large international industrial group Sumitomo, to face the most demanding global challenges together.
Looking for the best possible solutions, as our mission says, "innovation means doing something new every day, something that will improve the world". Always looking ahead, a beautiful dream that has been realized day by day for sixty years, as underlined by the words of our CEO Shaun Dean: "Now we will be able to study integrated solutions and develop them with the other specialized companies of the group, increasingly oriented towards technological innovation, energy saving and product customization, but with the aim of further improving performance and reducing environmental impact".
During the year there will be numerous initiatives that Lafert Group intends to propose, inside and outside the company to celebrate this anniversary. In addition to the claim "The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams", we have enriched ourselves with a new graphic design that will accompany the corporate image while communicating these individual activities. Some initiatives to discuss and exchange ideas on the territory are already being organized, such as an Open Day with the San Donà Rugby Team, which Lafert has been a sponsor partner for many years, and a press conference for the municipal project dedicated to the reorganization of the San Donà industrial area, which will see a memorandum of understanding between the Municipality, Confindustria and Lafert Group.
First, we want to share this vision internally, looking ahead by reflecting on our history and the goals achieved, but now with greater skills and a modern production capacity. 2022 will be filled with new market proposals and new objectives shared with all employees until next autumn when we will arrive at the peak of the program, that for now, we want to keep as a nice surprise.
