The FAMILY CONTINUITY in running the company is a hallmark of which Fimma is very proud.
Founded in 1941 by the engineer Guido Raccosta as G. RACCOSTA & C, and in 1961 renamed FIMMA, the company has developed and embraced a generation of inventors, technicians and salespersons who, each with their own personal contribution, have enriched the company.
The entry of Gaetano Raccosta, son of Guido, in 1965, was followed by that of his brother, Sandro Raccosta, in 1979. After various structural changes and the achievement of important quality certifications, also the third generation of the Raccosta family decided to continue this journey:
Gaetano’s children, Alessandra and Andrea, entered the company respectively in 1994 and 2006.

The company has always placed great importance on ECOSUSTAINABILITY. Thanks to the list of dangerous substances prepared by Greenpeace – called MRSL [*] – the production of hazardous metals can be controlled more effectively; a concrete example of our commitment to ecology is our use of brass with lead below 40PPM. Again, with a view to respecting the environment, we dedicate effort and resources to reducing waste and fully respect the ECOFASHION project.
[*] Greenpeace has implemented a detoxification campaign for some years now, creating a list of substances dangerous to the environment that shows the maximum concentration limit of each substance within commercial chemical formulations. This allows the clothing and footwear industry chain to adopt a harmonised approach to the management of chemical substances during the treatment of raw materials, with respect for and protection of the environment.
Over the years we have received many certifications that attest to the quality of our management system in the design and production of products through processes of cutting, punching, galvanising, coating, assembly and packing.
We are proud to adhere to Italian Legislative Decree 231 regards the administrative responsibility of the company, as an important example of our commitment to exercising correct business ethics.
