Our History

Since 1981

Capo Group history starts in 1980 when the first beauty salon of Mr. Tranito opened its doors and attracted lots of attention and became profitable. Due to our perseverance, throughout the period of two years, nine more beauty salons were opened. Since 1982, the net of beauty salons continued to expand into Spain, where four new beauty salons were established.

A beauty salon company Santa Betty had fifteen beauty salons in Italy and Spain and continued to expand its beauty empire. The next step was to create a beauty cosmetics line and in order to implement it, Capo Group opened a new factory in Milan.

Business cluster: after working for a long time in one of the business branches, we decided to develop our product’s growth and spread. Upon the production of one particular product, the need to hire third parties and collaborate manifested itself in the company’s activities. However, after new business and corporation management systems were invented, we began to search for possible merger partners, who would be able to contribute and help to develop our product.

Throughout the period of two years, our company, which mostly dealt in the production of some products, managed to attract various companies from different fields, such as marketing, transport and logistics and other companies which provided various services for the group members and recommended themselves as highly suitable for the work with clients.

Today this business cluster is one of our most important achievements.
