A couple of days ago Faenza Group inaugurated its first New York office, opened to grow exports and partnerships with US clients. The office is located at 521 West 26th Street in New York, just a stone’s throw from the Empire State Building in Chelsea, in the borough of Manhattan, one of the trendiest districts in the Big Apple which is packed with art galleries and other attractions.
The opening of the new office brings the number of Group headquarters to eight: its three production plants in Faenza, Milan and Carpi, proud custodians of Made in Italy quality, are supported by three commercial offices in Italy and Europe and two operative head offices, one in Paris, which has been open for a couple of years, and now the new office in New York.
Faenza Group has enjoyed steady growth, thanks to expertise developed over 40 years of designing and printing communication materials and continuous and far-sighted investments in technology and equipment. Over the years, leading companies in the sector have joined the Group, contributing to its growth and bringing to the table the know-how needed to compete with products and services in the high-end market segment, thus establishing its current positioning.
Today Faenza Group is one of the top names for printing fashion and lifestyle magazines, luxury product catalogues, photography and art books and in particular for designing and printing coffee table books and design packaging. The company combines tradition and innovation and has gone from strength to strength at a time when the global economic situation has been fraught with setbacks.
Faenza Group has operated on the US market since the early 2000s, but its business has intensified of late. In the past 12 months alone, the company has printed a photography book about the New York Police Department and has designed and printed the exclusive “My Time” for Christie’s, a book that has become a true work of art. Finally, this summer Michael Stipe, former frontman and leader of R.E.M., chose the company to print his latest book of photography in offset H-UV. To name but a few.
Claudio Rossi, CEO of Faenza Group, said: “The opening of our new office in New York is a starting point, not a point of arrival for us. The Group’s mindset is to continuously drive to improve and evolve. Our partnerships with the US market are a source of great pride to us; around the world the Made in Italy label is recognized and appreciated by everyone and we have made a name for ourselves as a company that uses the finest raw materials to create unique, exclusive print products. Our success is undoubtedly due to teamwork and the fact that each member of the team shares the same values and objectives. We will continue to work hard to export our Italian products and expertise all over the world, taking our clients’ ideas and projects and turning them into exclusive, cutting-edge printed communication products.”
