MAANTA CREW
The team is our greatest asset!

FROM HUMBLE BEGINNINGS

TO A GLOBAL BRAND

Starting from the home garage of the two founders Marco and Andrea Bettega, from 2011 to the present we have faced difficulties equal to ocean gales until we reached the first regatta gate with the Maanta team, strong, euphoric, full of dreams. Thus, wave after wave, as a sailboat plows through the seas to reach its destination, we have looked ahead with foresight and perseverance bringing home goal after goal. We understood that no organization is built by one person, our crew is an example of that, and we are proud of each member of our crew. From its first order of 10 shade sails to its current global presence in Europe and the United States, Maanta consists of a team of talented and passionate professionals who work side by side, defying rules and conventions. A company focused on the customer's needs and on customer satisfaction: Our commitment and passion have over time created strong and trusting bonds with our clients; their satisfaction is our pride.

We are thrilled by the referral of those who come into contact with our world and our products, rated 4.8 out of more than 80,000 genuine purchases in Google reviews. For this we are grateful and driven to do better, more and more. We do not stop, like waves driven by the wind.

We do not simply recognize ourselves as a company. We are a close-knit crew rowing in unison in the wind, serving the captain and his wise experience.

The company was born thanks to the two founders Andrea and Marco Bettega, who then took on board partners Davide and Martin. In a few years the team conquered the web, internationalizing the product. All of the four have always shown a great sensitivity to the people who compose the company.

To this day they continue to lead the crew by following the company values:

INTEGRITY

We are constantly open, humble, honest, ethical and genuine. We always pursue what is right and not what is easy or convenient.

RESPECT

We treat others as we want to be treated. We strive to show respect to all living being, inside and outside our company, in whatever community they live.

POSITIVITY

We constantly look for opportunities to contribute. We seek to make a positive impact on the environment.

PASSION

We are involved with heart and mind. When we do something, we do it the best we can: good is not good enough.

SPORTIVITY

We constantly raise our level in order to give more and more. We try to tackle one thing at a time, giving it all the time it deserves.

EFFICIENCY

The entire organization must constantly develop skills in avoiding waste of time and effort; using resources in the best way possible. Everyone must humbly serve efficiency in the common good.

LIABILITY

We take personal responsibility for what we promise, and we are always ready to answer for it with sound reasons.

Choices + Behaviors + Actions = Accountability

THE ORIGINS OF THE BRAND

The manta owes its name to the characteristic appearance of its body, resembling a large shawl or cloak, a billowing blanket that floats on the water. In fact, looking at them from a distance, manta rays look like huge dark blankets swaying in the sea. That is what 16th-century Spanish navigators thought when they first saw them and decided to call them in that way. Despite the enormous size, manta rays move through the water in a sinuous and smooth manner.

The juxtaposition of this majestic fish with the Maanta brand stems from a desire to give a figured meaning to what is being proposed in the market.

OUR EXPERIENCE

The dozens of patents we have developed, ranging from shade sails, to roller blinds, to drop tents, demonstrate the high degree of research, development and refinement achieved by the company. Thanks to the passion that all the founders have for boating and sailing in particular, we have managed to intertwine nautical technologies with our products, which thus stand out for innovation and uniqueness in the market. It is no coincidence that the only radial garden shade sail existing today is produced by Maanta.

Thanks to this added value of ours, we are able to produce furling sails of more than 100 square meters by closely controlling the entire production process, which allows for greater performance in terms of timing but especially in terms of quality.

An example, is the project carried out for the Alajmo group on the island of Certosa in Venice.

FROM PRODUCER TO CONSUMER WITH MADE-IN-ITALY QUALITY

One of our values is definitely related to a "Made in Italy" production philosophy: we believe that our economic and social fabric still has much to say and give internationally. In 2020, we equipped ourselves with special 4.0 machinery to start cutting and sewing fabric in Italy. Seventy percent of what we sell and export is proudly Made in Italy, and it's just one of the many ways we help our region. We draw, design, develop rapid prototyping and produce in-house, this allows us to have quality control and a competitive price/quality ratio.

In June 2016, Bega srl participates in the inauguration of Faber Square, in Tempio Pausania, created by Renzo Piano to pay homage to his great friend Fabrizio De Andrè.

The idea is to create roll-up sail curtains suspended on some steel ropes, anchored to the existing buildings, in order to generate colored pencils (the Fabers, dear to De Andrè) that unfold into colorful sails that decorate the square.

Despite several inquiries from more emblazoned companies, the famous ligurian architect chose Bega srl, which was able to field an innovative, simple and functional technical tensioning solution that ensured years of stable opening and closing of 14 sails controlled in unison by a single electronic control unit.

In July 2022, we were contacted by the Alajmo Group to cover an outdoor space at the Hostaria in Certosa in beautiful Venice.

The requirement was to cover a space of over 100 square metres with a furling sail without a roller blind. It was decided to use Solaria Furl with some minor adjustments to overcome the sail's enormous weight.

The result was an installation of about 119 square metres in breathable Meshnet fabric that could be manually furled using Hantal winches.

A great challenge that gave us great satisfaction in an area with a unique setting.

MAANTA CREW

Driven by our irrepressible passion for boating, sailing and challenge, we see ourselves as captains with their crew. It is as if the enterprise is our boat to lead. Each individual within the group is important to ensure perfect sail setting and thus to do their job. Maanta is growing, and it has a desire not to stop improoving. All of this is possible because of the strong group that has been formed over time. Maanta Crew are all the people who run the online store, who stand behind every order, every shipment, every click and every phone call;

 

We are a crew of people united by the same value: the passion for our work.

ENVIRONMENT AND SUSTAINABILITY

In 2020, we transformed ourselves into a Benefit Society (SB). These types of structures represent an evolution of the very concept of a company: they integrate into their corporate purpose, in addition to profit goals, the purpose of having a positive impact on society and the biosphere.
