So no crisis, unlike many other small companies gone out of business. “This year – asserts D’Argento – the results has been better than those of 2009 and 2010. Troubles arrived only in July, with the financial crisis. Instead, In the last six months, the trend was growing, we were recovering the lost ground with the crisis of 2008 and many companies like ours succeeded in doing overtimes”. Setback came suddenly in September, when several companies have received no more orders. “We cannot complain – says D’Argento – although at the moment we can’t make reliable predictions about 2012. If the financial storm of July and August hasn’t took place, the results would have been better. The problem is that we have to deal with banks that have tightened credit with lower profit margins and with a government that did not make necessary reforms. The latest incentives for firms date back to laws Tremonti. “
