MILAN — Furla SpA ended 2013 with a 7 percent gain in sales compared with the previous year, but chief executive officer Eraldo Poletto said there are “still margins for improvement.”
The Bologna-based accessories firm has been raising the quality of its products, developing its footwear division and expanding its lifestyle content, said Poletto. “The year 2014 will be very important for Furla to be at the next level,” he said.
