In 1988, Alfredo Ramponi inherited his father's company, a model of excellence in the processing of plastic items and, after a chance meeting with Marcus Otto Schmid, a Swiss trader in the fashion jewellery industry, he started his new adventure. Alfredo Ramponi’s passion for the world of stones and minerals flared up and soon he created the first synthetic crystal, which got its name from the use of noble plastics and because of its ability to reflect all characteristics of glass. En 1990 Alfredo Ramponi participe au premier Salon “Linea Pelle” à Florence, dans la Fortezza da Basso.


In 2000, the Company represented the ‘Made-in-Italy’ quality over the world by having a role in the Modamont tradeshow in Paris. In 2002 Ramponi® evolved its industrial structure with a new productive unit. From then on, Ramponi® has become a reference point for these works. The investments in R&D guarantee both the company and its clients the fruits of constant improvement. This is a great challenge…


Ramponi began its production of studs in “ABS” bringing together quality, endurance and lightness, while offering a wide variety of shapes and custom finishes. In 2011 the GLOBAL PLANNING SYSTEM project was launched with the aim to introduce an ideal integrated management. In 2012 with the Business Processes Model of Management Project, Ramponi restructured the Company structure, introducing production planning and strategic marketing area.


In 2013 a new company area of 400 square meters was set up to be entirely dedicated to the Application Laboratory. In 2014 the Company invested in two new business fields: the use of laser and staple machines (painting of components according to sample). In January 2014 a new productive sector was acquired. Now the surface dedicated to production process is 2800 square meters.


The Company buys t a new 1400 sq.m plant, entirely committed to the production. That creates an increase in productivity, also guaranteeing lead-time reduction, thanks to the new six production lines completely robotized. The Factory gets to Asia for a new fair event in Japan, by attending the two editions of Tokyo Leather Fair. Ramponi starts his cooperation with Politecnico University Milano, MAINLY focusing on energy efficiency. All that has been accompanied by relevant growing of workforce and interest to new welfare factory programs
