BEYOND THE NATIONAL BORDERS
The globalisation of the economy, the need to consolidate market share and the determination to give their business a larger stage are causing a growing number of companies to look beyond their national borders. Because internationalising their activities has become the central challenge for their development and corporate consolidation even for small companies. Many small firms find it difficult to grasp this opportunity, believing they are too small for a complex process like internationalisation. However, their small size can represent a factor of success, if it is combined with the ability to link elements such as expertise, flexibility and the adaptation of the products’ characteristics to the needs of the local market.
Pilato identified this opportunity some time ago, endowing its hearses with an international personality.
The result is a strong request for our products in numerous European and non-European countries,
and this has prompted our design office to create a range of outfits designed specifically for
the different funeral cultures and traditions, and able to meet the operating requirements
of professionals in this field.
These are fundamental aspects that must be taken into account when designing a hearse.
The manufacturer must guarantee flexibility and an ability to identify with the professional undertaker.
Pilato has grasped this challenge, more than any other manufacturer and hearse converter,
investing company and economic resources in the development of new models of car-based hearses.
With a total of 10 different hearse models on Jaguar and Mercedes-Benz chassis, and an infinite variety
of interior outfits, the company can meet the undertaker’s most varied demands.
This has enabled Pilato to become a truly global company.
