VICENZA, Italy (September 23) – Tradition-rich parts manufacturer Campagnolo announces that it has concluded its 2003-2004 tax-year very, very successfully. A record turnover of €88 million was posted. No mean feat, especially in these troubles economical times and with a strong Euro that actually made Campagnolo’s products up to 30% more expensive in some markets. Part of this success is due to the company’s ever-innovative products: from the first ever-quick release to the present exploits in composite technology. This part of the company’s production has now become so important that already one third of the workforce is employed in that field. Another factor that helped Campagnolo do as well as they did, are the supply problems at other manufacturers, most notably Shimano. Further accolades for Campagnolo this year are the prestigious Italian ‘Compasso D’Oro’ design award, which the company won for its Veloce groupset, Ergopower controls and Shamal wheels. It seems that the company’s three ‘pillars of wisdom’ work well: technological innovation, after sales service and customer satisfaction
are the motors behind Campagnolo’s success. (MH)
