Gabriele and Giuseppe will be valuable partners thanks to their expertise and the company will improve its relationship with yachts owners.”
The Made in Italy value is one of the resons that motivated Gabriele Bruni and Giuseppe Leonardi to join the Millenium team:
“There are two main reasons that motivated us to work with the Millenium Technology Center. First, the people who established and managed the company have an extensive experience. They have participated in the main boat races for many years and their professionalism is widely recognized, both in Italy and abroad. Second, Millenium Tech is an Italian company and it produces authentic Made in Italy products, where craftsmanship and customization are the most important features. Other brands in the Italian market are American, English or New Zealander and they distribute their sails through Italian sailmakers or stores. The Millenium Technology Center is an example of authentic Italian firm, which stood out in a market where competitors are international. People who got to know us are aware of the fact that we support our products and sailors in the nautical industry.
Millenium sails are beautiful, the product is one of the best in the market and the company is really close to the customers. The range of products is wide, they are suitable for every kind of yacht and the team continuously managed to be at the leading edge of innovation.
