The cooperative headquartered in Soliera in the Modena province was created thanks to the involvement of the former workers of Diaures, a company which went into crisis following financial problems and which had to file for bankruptcy. The 24 workers – after being forced to stop work for one year - decided to save their jobs and created the cooperative. They had to invest their own money in buying machinery and hiring the work place. Such an operation was made possible thanks to the support of various financial institutions linked to the Italian cooperative organisation Legacoop such as CFI, Coopfond and Sofinco. The 'Italtac-Self-Adhesive materials & coatings' cooperative was born on 17 March 2011. Italtac manufactures a large variety of standard and customized products in order to respond to the increasing requirements of the labelling market. The company wants to reinforce its presence on the international market as a reliable provider and a long term partner and to develop strong commercial alliances with clients and other providers. The 24 workers of the Italtac cooperative are deeply involved in the production process which allows them to guarantee an efficient, optimal and quality service to its clients.
