Success stories from our members
ALESSIO CASSINELLI LAVEZZO LAUNCH A NEW PRODUCT IDEA
A manufacturer of vehicle cleaning products wanted to expand into pet care - they connected with a pet care distributor, who helped launch the product and agreed to sell the new range
“For the past 50 years, Mafra has been a leading manufacturer of high quality cleaning pro-ducts for automobiles across the world. Recently we spotted a gap in the market to diversify the product range and enter the niche sector of pampering pet care products. With this being a new focus area for the business, we sought partners to aid the expansion."
“We decided to use our Opportunity Network membership to seek a trustworthy partner for this venture. Within a month of posting the opportunity, we established a connection with a CEO of a prestigious pet product distributor."
“Following an initial exchange of emails, we met to formalise a mutually beneficial partnership. Following the successful launch of the Mafra for Pet product line, Mafra now sells its range through the new partner.“
“The connection yielded a very positive result for both sides. We got access access to a robust, international distribution network, whilst our new partner has been able to innovate by offering its customers a fresh and exciting new product.“
“We were able to quickly create a longstanding partnership which would not have been possible without Opportunity Network.”
LOCATED 20 TONS OF A HARD-TO-FIND MATERIAL
An asphalt membrane producer in Spain successfully purchased a large
quantity of a scarce resource from a supplier in Italy shortly after joining
“I work in the purchasing department for a company in Spain that produces asphalt membrane. It’s generally used as insulation material in buildings and waterproofing. We were invited to join Opportunity Network by Caixa Bank."
“What’s really amazing for us is how quickly we managed to find a partner through Opportunity Network. I opened my account on January 4th and within 8 days I had already found the perfect opportunity for us!"
“I connected to an opportunity from a company selling SBS polymer, which is a material we use as a modifier. It’s actually quite hard to find this stuff so sourcing good suppliers can be tricky. The opportunity was perfect because it was from a company in Italy that had excess stock."
“After a brief discussion and negotiation, we closed a deal to buy 20 tons - literally a truck load - of the material from our new partner."
“It was really satisfying to see such a quick return on the investment we made in joining Opportunity Network and fantastic to think that we’ve found ourselves a new supplier we can trust. Hopefully we can continue to do business with them in future.”
