The Origin of Quality
JUST ONE RULE AIM FOR PERFECTION
The Origin of Quality at Maspica SpA is a path of continuous transformation, a cultural change, a profound and strategic effect on the entire production process.
All Sixton Peak safety footwear is accompanied by the brand-label, The Origin of Quality as a distinctive and tangible sign, which informs and draws the vision, gives life to a brand experience, that is to say the source, the origin of quality and the traceability of materials. Maspica has always kept the bar of total quality high, but it is through the story of the managers that one can discover the true meaning of this corporate value.
Quality is the protagonist across the board, a strong choice, which combined with passion and determination, has required investments and continuous decisions that have allowed the company to create a real culture of quality, a global attitude that concerns not only research and innovation, style and selection of materials, but also the production cycle, the employees and the controls extended to all the processing phases. With this awareness everyone in Maspica believes in what he does and becomes important to the end user himself.
In the first place the well-being and the protection of the health of the worker.
“Our Total Quality is a concept that pervades all aspects of our daily actions and goes far beyond the process management for which Maspica Spa acts in compliance with the EN ISO 9001, 14001 and 18001 certifications, also thanks to more than 30 tests carried out in the internal research laboratory, an accredited member, the first in Italy to the RPN inter-laboratory network (Ricotest Prociency Network). Maspica SpA collaborates and confronts itself daily with the most authoritative certification bodies: Ricotest itself and then Satra, TUV, Cimac, CTC, CSA.
Here, however, people are equally important - both our human resources, who fully share the original vision of Maspica Spa and the Sixton Peak brand, with a strong and cohesive team of engineers and technicians, determined to respect the mission and values of Maspica and to travel the path of continuous improvement - and our end customers, who entrust their well-being and the protection of their health to our footwear. We think of them at every moment, to the way in which we can better meet their needs with unique products, specially made for the most diverse and extreme work environments, always ensuring optimal solutions in terms of safety, comfort and style, the three pillars on which the global quality of our footwear is based, three assets of equal importance and always in perfect balance.
With this aim in mind, we maintain a continuous feed-back with the market, providing information and training but also with “one to one mentoring” with suppliers, wholesalers, retailers and consumers: it is a continuous exchange of opinions and skills that we consider extremely useful, to which we dedicate a lot of attention “.
The preparation of a virtuous chain, constantly monitored, finds concrete expression in footwear at the top of quality production.
“It all starts with rigorous checks and controls through physical and visual instrumental tests of incoming materials. The performance qualities and suitability for the intended uses of leather, fabrics and accessories, such as insoles, sheets and tips, are evaluated. In our factory, our highly qualified and experienced technicians are constantly present to check the quality of the various operations necessary to create the upper, from cutting to stitching up to assembly.
Each phase is supervised by the modeling technical office to make the employees aware of being part of the The Origin of Quality project, aimed at supremacy, excellence.
The Sixton Peak shoe, before being placed on the market, is tested in the working environment to which it is designed to ensure “fitness for use”, its suitability for use. And so it is, that every finished product passes over 200 control operations to fully satisfy the strict EN ISO 20345: 2011 standards and presents itself as a leading article, made in a state of the art manner, able to offer maximum safety, superior resistance and absolute comfort.
The Sixton Peak design is the universally recognized Italian style.
“Ours is the Italian style that takes its cue from dynamic concepts, which anticipate the rapidly changing market and is constantly evolving. We like to raise the level of the challenge, to go beyond what we have already seen, because we know that what satisfies us today will not do it tomorrow. It is a stimulating process to create, progress and innovate every day, to achieve at the same time concrete results that make Sixton footwear one of the most reliable in Europe ”.
Attention to the environment, sustainability as a strategic and responsible choice.
“Environmental protection is in the first place, as witnessed by the Maspica sustainability department for a production chain that aims to promote increasingly sustainable processes. So choice of materials with lower impact, more recyclable and biocompatible, and design of solutions that, for structure and workmanship, will not weigh on the environment. Not only that: we limit the consumption of raw materials, and any substance as much as possible, as well as we limit energy consumption, atmospheric emissions, packaging and noise pollution. We recover the leather, and textile based processing scraps, and put them into an upcycling process for a minimum waste of resources, trying to respect Mother Nature without compromise. For a sustainable evolution that goes to the Origin of Quality! “.
