A few years ago, I was at a bar waiting for a friend.
He was coming from outside, so I decided I would welcome him with a coffee. I started playing with the napkin holder, one of those steel ones that looks like a little box.
You probably know the feeling, when you’re lost in thoughts, and find something do keep your hands buy too.
The first napkin had a sentence printed on it that resonated with me. I took it out so I could read it closely, but my friend walked in right at that moment. I just folded the napkin in my wallet and forgot about it.
You’re probably wondering what was written on that napkin, and why it resonated with me.
Let me tell you about it.
A few days ago, my whole family reunited for a very special event.
Everybody was there: me, my mother Dora, my siblings Giovanni and Mariangela. Together, we signed the paperwork officiating that SAPA has now become a Company Limited by Shares.
On that special day, I found that old napkin crumbled up and read it again:
To see a world in a grain of sand
It’s a quote from an English poet, William Blake, from the 18th century.
I smiled: that quote perfectly summed up that very brief, but incredibly significant, moment in the history of our company.
Let me explain.
As you may know, our company was founded in 1975, thanks to my father, who immediately believed in a big project.
Sure, it wasn’t easy, but as years went by, SAPA has become an important industrial reality and competitive player in the automotive field.
In the last few years, we’ve invested on research, deciding to create a department known as “Innovation Engineering”, allowing us to create, test and try new solutions.
This is the same department responsible for the One-Shot Method: a patented unique SAPA method for the production of car’s components.
It is thanks to the One-Shot Method that we were able to transform common car components in what we call “Superior Auto Parts Always”.
Because our components are the only ones to be:
Compared to those manufactured through traditional techniques, SAPA’s components are:
Such a method allowed SAPA to get its name out there and win several awards, quickly becoming a benchmark for companies worldwide, working with brands like FCA, Volkswagen, CNH, Porsche and Ferrari.
You might be wondering: what does this have to do with becoming an S.p.A?
Our recent work has confirmed to us what used to be just a wish:
SAPA has the potential for an even bigger growth.
It’s been a while now since SAPA’s adopted consolidated financial statements. An essential tool for transparency when it comes to a company’s work, which is now a pillar of our work method.
This even allowed us to win the “Industria Felix Award” as best female centered enterprise in Campania, collected by my sister Mariangela.
Right now, all of the shares are held by our family, as members of the Board of Directors, but you know our effort is not enough.
That’s why we believed that SAPA could be a good place for investments: a place for growth, not just for those who planted the seeds, but also for others looking at ours as a benchmark business model.
We believe in this project and see a world in this tiny grain of sand.
I like to believe you might do to, and share this dream with us.
