The plant

The rigour and quality of the sartorial production and the elegance of the Landini style are also to be found in the architecture of the plant itself, which fits perfectly into the surrounding natural landscape. Everything is bright and luminous. Ten thousand square metres of essential functionality adding up to a working environment that is harmonious, attractive and also “ecological”.
Lardini is one of the first companies in the area to have installed a solar power system on the roof to contribute to energy saving, as well as anti-pollution filters that improve the quality of the environment.

The new production area

New projects for the Lardini Group, which has begun work at Filottrano (AN) for an enlargement of the operational premises.

The new area of nine thousand square metres will be arranged over three floors. On the ground floor (5,400 mq) is the department devoted to decatisation, steaming and textile control; a computerised warehouse for the automatic functional management of fabric search and management, an automatic cutting department; other currently separate sectors will also be brought together to optimise the flows of the production phases.
The initial sequence of the fabric treatments will serve for analysis of defects and then – through steaming and decatisation – to make the dimensions and finish permanent as well enhancing the softness and characteristics of the fibres.
Alongside this area there will be a computerised warehouse for sourcing and management of the fabrics. After being called up by the operator the fabrics will be independently managed by robots which will collect them, bring them to the laying tables and then take those already used back to the warehouse, drastically diminishing human errors of management, even in terms of accounting, as well as speeding up operations. The new department will also be equipped with eight automatic cutting heads which will guarantee quicker times and optimal results.
Finally, the section that deals with glueing, marking and trimming will be able to benefit from larger spaces for the passage of materials, with efficient job order flows. The first and second floors will be given over to the accessories warehouse and another finished garment warehouse, designed to respond to the increased work volumes.

“The new facility will allow us to dispose of a much larger area for loading /unloading raw materials, rest areas and others for sorting and handling the materials destined for processing, with an excellent system of risk control and the elimination of activities without value,” adds Lardini.
