The existence of Gottifredi Maffioli represents a history of challenges and new ideas. Thanks to the constant innovation and to the many challenges won, Gottifredi Maffioli has become a reference point for various markets through the years. The company was founded 90 years ago, in 1926 by a young woman, Maria Gottifredi: a company created by a woman was just the first of many more pioneeristic events which characterise all Gottifredi Maffioli’s history.

L’azienda venne fondata 90 anni fa, nel 1926, da una donna, Maria Gottifredi. In questa presenza femminile nel momento fondativo vi è un senso di pionerismo che caratterizzerà tutta la storia della piccola fabbrica ubicata a Novara.

Another step into the innovation came at the beginning of the 1980’. Thanks to the first pioneeristic tests with Kevlar, the innovative fibre of DuPont, Gottifredi Maffioli was selected as supplier for the running rigging for Azzurra, the first Italian team challenging for the America’s Cup. This was the first step into the sailing world, now the reference market of the Italian company, and the beginning of a still continuing adventure. Nowadays...

POLYAMIDG POLIAMMIDG Polyester fibres are featured by high tenacity and good abrasion resistance. Lightweight and flexible, Polyester resists well to wrinkles and chemical/ physical agents. All these characteristics, combined with the low coefficient of water absorption, make polyester ideal for a wide range of applications. Kevlar® is the famous aramid fibre produced by Du Pont de Nemours. This fibre, featured by a recognisable gold yellow colour, outstands for high modulus and high heat resistance (it decomposes at over 400°C). Weight for weight, Kevlar® is 5 times stronger than steel and...

Speciale trattamento termico cui vengono sottoposte le cime in Dyneema ® per migliorare le prestazioni meccaniche. Questo processo consiste nel portare la cima ad elevata temperatura e sottoporla a trazione per equilibrare perfettamente le tensioni delle fibre, consentendo così di incrementare la resistenza ed il modulo della cima di circa il 15% e di ridurne il diametro del 10%. Special polyurethane coating treatment realized by Gottifredi Maffioli to enhance abrasion resistance and make splicing easier. Speciale trattamento di coating poliuretanico realizzato da Gottifredi Maffioli per...
