Laghetto prepares to keep growing and take the leap to the USA and AustraliaJune 30, 2021
Laghetto, the Italian firm specializing in high-end aboveground pools, is adapting one of its ranges to sell them in the USA and Australia.
It has adopted lean methodology, which enables it to optimize production.
Laghetto opens a new 2,500 sq meter warehouse to bolster its response capacity due to strong rise in demand.
Laghetto, the Fluidra division for Italian-designed high-end aboveground pools, finds itself in full swing in preparation to continue growing. It is working proactively to adapt one of its pool ranges to regulations in Australia and the United States. The aim is to be able to start marketing them there from next year.
In this process of adaptation to continue on the path of stable growth, the company has completed the implementation of the Lean management model that will drive production by cutting down superfluous costs. The adoption of this methodology is in line with the company’s goals of continuous and sustainable margin improvements.
The method also makes it possible to improve worker safety conditions, boost productivity, and enhance product quality, a major step in modernizing the company and fostering its competitiveness.
New warehouse and increase in sales
Laghetto opened a new 2,500 sq meter warehouse in January to step up its response capacity to meet the strong rise in demand for its high-end aboveground pools.
Thus, it continues to stride ahead in its growth process. Following a 19% sales rise in 2020, helped by the ‘stay at home’ effect created by the pandemic, signs for 2021 suggest another very good year for pools.
Due to the exceptional demand again this year, the brand, world leader in aboveground designer pools, saw the orders received in comparison with last year multiply, which has meant that – in line with what is happening in the whole sector – stock has run out until autumn.
