Preservation of the Typical Made in Italy Areas with Significant Experience Also in Other Sectors

In its almost 60 years of activity, GEA, having collaborated with over 1,000 clients, has been involved in numerous industrial sectors and supply chains to varying extents. In recent years, there has been substantial growth, particularly in the consumer goods sector, with a significant focus on food, fashion, and large-scale retail trade.

Consumer Goods and Food

The consumer goods sector stands as a cornerstone of our business, attributed to the diverse product sectors served and the related companies.

We have undertaken and continue to work on strategic relaunch projects, commercial development and marketing, sales force reorganization, revision of production strategy or distribution network, complexity reduction, improvement of planning processes, as well as control and administrative systems for industrial and large-scale retail companies.

Durable Goods

Durable Goods

Our experience predominantly revolves around durable consumer goods for the home, including electrical systems, air conditioning and heating systems, household appliances, lighting systems, furniture, design components, and coverings.

These sectors share similar operational logics, channel strategies, and market approaches, extensively studied over the years through entrusted tasks. We have managed production delocalization projects, redefined designs for innovative platforms leveraging embedded electronics, and undertaken projects aimed at enhancing purchasing efficiency and simplifying the management of product ranges by reducing complexity.

Chemical and Pharmaceutical

In this domain, GEA has collaborated with leading multinational pharmaceutical companies and specialists in the production of raw materials and semi-finished products. More recently, we have partnered with companies involved in the distribution and import/export of pharmaceutical products.

Our work in this field has primarily focused on evaluating the strategic and competitive positioning of companies. This involves in-depth analysis of market matrices and the involved technological chains, improvement of business processes and service quality, and the revision and optimization of distribution logic and models. We particularly emphasize the intermediate drug distribution sector.

Fashion and Luxury

Fashion and Luxury

Through decades-long collaborations with key players in the industry, including fabric manufacturers, yarn producers, apparel manufacturers, and retailers, GEA has developed a deep understanding of supply chain dynamics and operational logics to enhance business performance.

Over the years, GEA has successfully completed more than 50 projects dedicated to strengthening competitiveness and improving positioning for fashion and luxury companies. These projects have spanned from developing new products and collections to enhancing service levels, implementing global sourcing strategies, to defining and developing retail chains, whether direct or operated through franchising.

The fashion and luxury sectors inherently lean towards global expansion, and in this regard, GEA has assisted many companies in developing and implementing expansion strategies in international markets. Our experience in this field has covered various segments, including clothing, eyewear, leather goods, watches, accessories, and even the yachting industry.

Retailing and Wholesale Distribution

Retailing and Wholesale Distribution

Frequent engagement with fast-moving consumer goods, textile apparel, accessories, and durable and semi-durable industrial and consumer goods sectors has exposed us to various facets of distribution, both at the retail and wholesale levels.

Projects in this domain have covered all functional areas and typical challenges of a distribution company. Particularly significant projects, with substantial impact and innovative content, have included brand/store repositioning or rethinking store concepts, franchise network development with the (re)definition of the operational model for store network management, study and development of advanced supply processes, development of assortment management models based on categories, and the redesign of administrative processes at headquarters and peripheral locations to enhance labor productivity.
