Support for the local supply chain and the excellence of italian craftsmanship
OTB's supply chain is the result of close collaboration with more than 1.110 suppliers in 39 countries, of which more than 71% are based in Italy, a percentage that rises to 80% for the Group's luxury Brands. 57% of the supply chain is made up of local companies, meaning they are located near the main buildings of the Group. To establish strong relationships with all its suppliers, the OTB Group has developed the project Credito Agevolato - Suppliers' Help or C.A.S.H., through which it extends its creditworthiness score to the players that make up its supply chain, allowing them further development and growth. Since the inception of the C.A.S.H. project, the total volume of payments has exceeded 450 million euro. Given the strategic importance of the supply chain for the Group, the C.A.S.H. project could see further development in the coming years, increasing its positive impact on the Italian handicraft supply chain for the benefit of Italian small and medium-sized enterprises.
