When you’re working with family on a daily basis, there is bound to be a lot of drama. The Martelli’s know drama, but at the end of the day, they also know love. The show features a unique balance between doing what it takes to run a family business and highlights the likeability of the Martelli family themselves. It also features John Martelli’s love for inventing and displays the characteristics of an American family with a strong Italian heritage.
This show is currently in pre-production and plans to begin airing in the Spring of 2016.
The Martelli’s have a solid entrepreneur background and a strong Italian heritage.
The family was a part of the 12 million immigrants that entered the United States through the portal of Ellis Island, a small island in the New York Harbor. It is now estimated that 40 percent of all current U.S. citizens can trace at least one of their ancestors to Ellis Island. The Martelli family were known for being hard workers and innovators. In fact, John Martelli’s father, Anthony, was known for stating, “If man built it, I can fix it”. History shows that the Martelli’s could not only fix what man built, but innovate and provide cutting edge inventions that help millions of families.
For over 20 years, John Martelli’s inventions have found enormous success, particularly in the field of sewing and quilting. The Martelli family have provided quilters and other sewing and crafting enthusiasts with the tools and accessories to pursue their art and express themselves.
Their company values innovation and continual improvement through the support of a dedicated research and development team. The Martelli’s believe that it really means something to offer a product that will be appreciated and recommended to others.
What sets Martelli Enterprises apart is their commitment to research, engineering, design, and testing for all of their products. Research and development is the starting point for providing the tools that allow you to execute your creative vision.
The Martellis business is family owned and operated. They are on the premises daily to oversee the many operations. The business began with four family members, and has now grown to include over 20 dedicated employees who are like an extension of the family.
As a new generation steps up to serve their customers, the Martelli’s anticipate preserving this unique combination–a corporate business with a family mentality.
