Made in Italy: a conscious decision

The term Made in Italy is used to indicate products designed and manufactured entirely in Italy, which are capable of representing the qualitycreativity, and ingenuity of Italian craftsmen.

On a worldwide stage, Italian products stand out thanks to their unique characteristics:

  • quality;
  • creativity;
  • design;
  • style;
  • custom construction;
  • technology;
  • innovation.

The Made in Italy marking also has a positive impact on the Italian population and economy: it increases domestic employment and strengthens the country’s economy.

in fact, Italy’s productive system has undergone several changes in recent years, and increasingly finds itself dealing with aggressive competition from abroad, thus rendering it extremely important to protect the uniqueness of Italy’s image and that of its products; the “Made in italy” marketing allows local businesses to stay in close contact with their products, and to improve them as much as possible.

Vimec itself has decided to promote the Made in Italy marking in the sector of stairclimbers for the disabled and people with mobility problems. Since 2017, the Roby T09 mobile stairclimber has also been manufactured in Italy.

This decision has provided for an improvement in both the training and the business culture, with the aim of enhancing the synergy among the various production departments.

Furthermore, having contact with the product during the design and construction stages allows for the development of solutions that stand out on market thanks to their technology, aesthetics, and functionality, while at the same time improving the existing products and reducing their costs.

Customer awareness, innovation, and ongoing research are the guiding principles that allow Vimec to continuously improve the services offered to its customers.

The fact that approximately 1,000 italian families have decided to improve their home mobility with the only chair stairlift Made in Italy reveals how Italians prefer and appreciate the expertise and professionalism of Italian manufacturers.
