RadiciGroup forms partnership with Atalanta BC club
Sep '17
RadiciGroup, a producer of a wide range of chemical intermediates, polyamide polymers, engineering plastics, synthetic fibres, and nonwovens, has formed a partnership with Atalanta BC for the UEFA Europa League and the Coppa Italia. Europe is the playing field of this venture for the Group’s business goals in the UEFA Europa League football competition.

Resource recycling and reuse are the key words of the Group’s corporate strategy, in line with the European Commission’s circular economy and eco-design proposal. The Group is engaged in the chemicals, plastics and synthetic fibres businesses and carries out 85 per cent of its production in Europe.

In the football world, RadiciGroup nylon yarn is mainly used for player intimatewear and socks, while polyester yarn is used for shorts and the outer jersey layer (polyamide is better for the inner layer touching the skin). Turning to plastics for the sports industry, the engineering plastics made by RadiciGroup are utilised for stadium seats, as well as for sport accessories, such as football shoes and shin guards.

RadiciGroup also produces yarn used in the manufacture of synthetic turf pitches. Overall, the Group’s product offering for the football world is among the most complete and sustainable in Europe. RadiciGroup is a sole-source supplier, with its roots in Bergamo but operating well beyond national borders.

Maurizio Radici, vice president of RadiciGroup said, “Seeing the RadiciGroup brand on the Atalanta jerseys for the Europa League is something I can be proud of. We were a small provincial textile company and have become a multinational in chemicals, plastics and synthetic fibres. I’d like to thank Atalanta for giving Bergamo and all of us residents the opportunity to experience this magical European adventure.”

One of our greatest challenges and a project that the Group is focusing a lot of effort on, with the transversal engagement of all Group business areas, is the total recyclability of our synthetic fibres. The aim is for all our textile products to be mechanically recycled and transformed into new plastics for new technical and industrial uses,” he added. (GK)
