Filati Omega challenges the pandemic with eco-sustainability

A model company that challenges the pandemic with its all-round choice for eco-sustainability and continues to invest with courage. For this mayor of Vaiano, Primo Bosi – together with the deputy mayor Marchi and the councilors Boni and Fioravanti – wanted to visit the Omega Filati della Briglia this morning, a company that represents one of the jewels of the territory, one of the 66 spinning mills active in the district Prato (69 in the vast area) – 91 in 2013 – surveyed by the recent mapping prepared by Confindustria Toscana Nord.

“It is right to recount a positive experience in such a particular moment, we need a message of hope – comments Bosi – Filati Omega is a model that teaches that investing in eco-sustainable development and teaming up starts again”.

After the crisis of the past few months from March 1st we managed to bring the layoffs back to zero hours – says Gabriele Innocenti who leads the company with two partners – In the last five years the company has made the choice of eco-sustainability, the green and circular economy have also become concrete through the Cardato recycled made in Prato brand and production certifications such as RWS – RAF, the most important standard for the certification of products that contain wool from responsibly managed farms, and GRS which guarantees the product actually recycled in compliance with environmental and social criteria at all stages of the production chain “.

All production partner companies are based in the district and are located within a radius of 15 km. “Omega Filati’s activities include winding, steaming, three spinning and twisting – explains Innocenti – and it is the virtuous circle of collaboration that guarantees quality, efficiency and competitiveness”.

Not only. To ensure energy self-sufficiency, Filati Omega has installed 625 photovoltaic panels, while over the next three years the entire fleet will be electric or hybrid.

A very refined production process leads to the recovery of materials – all purchased from traders in the Prato area – otherwise destined to become waste and to the ennobling of waste products, regenerated and given new life and transformed into fine yarns. No chemicals are used during the recovery phase.

History

The company was born in 1962 thanks to the entrepreneurial spirit of four brothers and in 2004 it became Omega Filati. In 1974 the production plant was moved from Prato to Vaiano, in a building of 6 thousand square meters. In the early 90s, with the arrival of the second generation in the company, Filati Omega became – from a manufacturer for third parties – one of the most popular industries for the production and trade of carded yarns on the national and international scene. Currently its yarns are used for the production of fabrics for furniture, clothing, knitwear and accessories of the main world brands.

This morning the mayor also talked about infrastructure and mobility. Bosi has ensured the commitment to study hypotheses of viability that guarantee a faster connection both with Prato – trying to solve the critical knot of Santa Lucia – and towards the industrial area of Montemurlo.
