Italy: Marchesini Group Inaugurates New Factory "The Biggest Thermoforming Hub in Italy”
National and local authorities and the Group’s employees attended the inauguration of the new production facilities of Marchesini Group in Carpi.
Carpi/Italy — The Group has invested € 14 million in the facotry covering a surface of 14,000 m2; 150 people will be employed to work permanently at the factory once it is up and running, plus 50 workers, among technicians and engineers from Carpi and Modena will be taken-on next year.
Some authority representatives attended the cutting of the tape, among whom the Minister for the Environment, Mr. Gian Luca Galletti, the governor of the Emilia-Romagna Region, Mr. Stefano Bonaccini, the Mayor of Carpi, Mr. Alberto Bellelli, the Bishop of Carpi, H.E. Monsignor Francesco Cavina and Maurizio Marchesini, the CEO of the Group and Chairman of the Industrialists Association of Emilia-Romagna.
The Minister, Mr. Gian Luca Galletti stated that “Marchesini’s new factory in Carpi sums up what the country needs to grow, namely sustainable technology, an investment that brings new job opportunities and local development, strongly focusing on environmental aspects. Following the historical agreement reached during the Cop21 in Paris, the world chose the production model of decarbonisation, regeneration and sustainability: some national businesses realised this before others and this is why they will be immediately and lastingly competitive on the marketplace. Once again, the Emilia-Romagna region proves that Italy is back on its feet and ready to act as a European leader of green economy”.
Maurizio Marchesini pointed out that: “The factory in Carpi has been built, and will continue to grow, as a modern smart factory. It will produce at industrial rates but with the quality of fine tailored products. The technologies exploited will ensure energy from renewable sources and will minimise harmful emissions. Each workplace has been created using exclusively Made-in-Italy products. Today, we are not just inaugurating a factory, but we are celebrating a way of doing business and of enhancing our land”.
A traditional 5-day Open House event was held just before inaugurating the new factory in Carpi. The Group opened its factory to over 700 national and international customers. During their stay they were able to take part in talks on current topics concerning the pharmaceutical industry.
