Pioneers in the field of import

Our History

    Luigi Bindi founded Dimex S.r.l. in 1976 and immediately started buying large quantities of footwear. His first business trips abroad were quickly followed by the arrival of goods into our warehouse. Subsequently, these goods immediately sold out and the business was an instant success. Numerous, dedicated trips to the Far East have allowed him to directly develop and check the production of footwear and to ensure necessary production capacity in the best factories.
