Calligaris S.p.A. has acquired a majority share (85%) in Ditre Italia, the family-owned Treviso upholstered furniture company founded by the three De Marchi brothers in 1976. This operation is part of an industrial and commercial integration plan launched
by Calligaris (which celebrates 95 years of activity in 2018) to comprehensively expand its presence in the furniture business. Ditre Italia boasts forty years experience in the production of upholstered furniture and is present both in Italy and abroad offering a “total outfit” integrated package. This acquisition will allow the Calligaris Group to effectively complete its offer and will at the same time be a driver for Ditre on account of its widespread distribution in over 90 countries worldwide. The operation will see Mr. Michele De Marchi, one of the second generation of the Ditre Italia founders, stay on as CEO, providing the continuity that Calligaris intends to maintain in its newly acquired company.

Mr. De Marchi will also join the Board of Directors of Calligaris S.p.A. in order to be able to oversee in the best possible way the process of integration between the two companies. Both sides have signalled deep satisfaction with the agreement reached. Chairman Alessandro Calligaris says he is "Sure that the nurturing of nascent synergies can lead the Group to growth and exponential development in a global competitive environment where "critical mass” is fast becoming a crucial element for companies to be able to compete effectively."
