LVMH Métiers d’Art, the division of the renowned French luxury conglomerate LVMH, has recently made another strategic acquisition in Italy. This move follows their previous purchases in Tuscany, where they acquired Ally Projects, a specialized tannery of exotic skins, as well as stakes in high-end leather apparel producer Robans and established tannery Nuti Ivo. Now, LVMH Métiers d’Art has set its sights on the northern Italian region of Veneto, purchasing a 100% stake in Renato Menegatti, a metal components producer based in Villaverla, near Vicenza. In order to align with its vision, the company has been rebranded as M.ON.DE, which stands for metal-on-demand.

M.ON.DE is renowned for its expertise in employing traditional jewelry techniques to craft small metallic components for luxury accessories. The company manages the entire production process in-house, from 3D designing and prototyping to manufacturing and applying various finishing methods. These include galvanization with gold or palladium, as well as anodizing, glazing, and polishing. The company’s product range encompasses logos, chains, buckles, eyelets, zippers, and studs that are used in garments and leather goods.

With the addition of Renato Menegatti, LVMH Métiers d’Art has expanded its collection of companies specialized in metal components. This includes Taiwan-based GBJM, founded in 2012, and Jade Group, headquartered in Portugal and France.

Matteo De Rosa, CEO of LVMH Métiers d’Art, expressed his gratitude for the opportunity to collaborate with the highly skilled professionals at Renato Menegatti. He emphasized the company’s commitment to preserving the heritage of the producer while infusing innovation and passion into its operations. De Rosa believes that this acquisition will enable LVMH Métiers d’Art to consistently provide exceptional luxury products to their customers, cementing their position as an industry benchmark.

As LVMH Métiers d’Art expands its portfolio of companies, it remains dedicated to maintaining excellence in every facet of the luxury industry. The acquisition of Renato Menegatti and its rebranding as M.ON.DE further strengthens LVMH Métiers d’Art’s presence in the metal components sector, ensuring that they can continue to deliver extraordinary craftsmanship and unique designs to their discerning customers.
