Filippi starts 50th anniversary celebrations

Filippi 1971, the Italian company supplying RV furniture, started its 50th anniversary celebrations at the recent Caravan Salon in Düsseldorf – it’s 18th consecutive year at the show.

In its 50 years of history, Filippi 1971 has changed a lot, especially since 2000 when it decided to enter the RV sector. It has gradually implemented a radical conversion of its production, passing from the tradition of solid wood to the use of plywood panels. This conversion involved new machinery, production processes, suppliers.

After introducing the production of melamine panels, in 2004, Filippi 1971 also included the processing of laminate panels. In 2017, an internal carpentry department was created, capable of manufacturing high quality furniture items.

The company has continually invested in machinery, but the excellent specialized staff who come from the valleys of the Bergamo area, where Filippi 1971 is based, are also important. In recent years, staff numbers has increased a lot and today 80 people work in the company.

To celebrate the company’s 50th anniversary, employees will be invited to a company outing as a way to celebrate this important milestone together, but also a useful team building opportunity.

“It is exciting to work with such a well-established and close-knit team,” explains Francesca Filippi, marketing manager of Filippi 1971; “and our family owes a lot to its employees and collaborators. It was not easy to enter the RV world, but in the last 20 years we have worked hard and invested a lot: today I can proudly say that our professionalism is recognized even by those who are not yet our customers. We are open to new experiences and we are talking with various European manufacturers,” said Francesca Filippi.

Although 70 percent of Filippi’s 1971 turnover comes from the RV sector, the company is also active in other areas, such as furniture design and the nautical sector.
