Success

Stories

Many companies have benefited from our collaboration and advice on innovation and have been able to develop new products, processes or materials. Some recent successful examples in their fields are provided below.

  • GLENT

    GLENT

    GLENT aimed at positioning its brand into men’s footwear market with bespoke and customised shoes. That is why they resorted to INESCOP and perfectly joined craft manufacture with the most innovative technology applied to the footwear sector, thus producing a high-end handcrafted product.

    At present, the firm has its own shop at one of the most prestigious commercial areas of Madrid and is fully involved in online sales thanks to the Web-based footwear configurator.

  • ARSUTORIA School

    ARSUTORIA School
    The renowned Italian footwear design school, ARSUTORIA School, chose INESCOP’s Icad3D+ software for training in their design classroom, which is integrated in their in-house factory. This makes it possible for students to produce their own prototypes, from the design stage to final production.

    Definitely a unique training experience!

  • LIFE OXATAN

    LIFE OXATAN

    The LIFE OXATAN project was acknowledged by the European Commission as “the Best of the Best” LIFE Environment projects in 2012.

    Thanks to this project, a new tanning technique based on oxazolidine was developed, which allows, on the one hand, a reduction in the environmental impact, and on the other hand, the production of high-performance leathers with softness, fullness and flexibility properties that can be suitable for footwear, upholstery and leather goods sectors.

  • INGA3D

    INGA 3D

    INGA 3D emerged due to the difficulties that European footwear companies faced when trying to employ highly-skilled VET graduates in computer-aided 3D footwear design. For that reason, the project created a training material for footwear CAD and an online platform.

    Nowadays, both IED Madrid and the "Gheorghe Asachi" Technical University of Iaşi (Romania) are teaching with this training material.
