For years now, the importance of digitisation or concepts such as industry 4.0 have been hot topics, and yet never before has there been such proof of their fundamental value. Computers, tablets and smartphones allow many people to stay in touch, work and study wherever they are.
FiIippetti, a 100% Italian group that has always had an ability to invest in innovation, has been aware of these trends for some years. The company, founded in Ancona in 1974, was already able to predict the needs of the digital market in 2000, having realised the enormous potential of data centre technologies and specialising in in-cloud solutions.
Today, Filippetti is a leader in the field of technological convergence, employing 400 people in 12 subsidiaries in Italy, bringing its most innovative solutions to client companies operating in a wide variety of markets.
A success that saw the company take third place in the 2019 Data Manager's "Challengers top 100" ranking.
Cassa Depositi e Prestiti, together with Finlombarda (a Lombardy based finance company), has agreed a loan of €10 million for Filippetti Spa. The transaction, guaranteed by SACE, will support the company's investments and is in line with the principles of CDP, with its constant commitment to accelerating the country's industrial and infrastructural development and supporting Italy’s companies of excellence.
With this transaction, CDP is contributing to the achievement of Sustainable Development Goal 9 - build resilient infrastructure, promote sustainable industrialization and foster innovation - of the United Nations 2030 Agenda.
