Ametek inaugurates its new factory


On December 19h, the chief executive officers of the two organizations of Ametek Italia MAE will inaugurate the new factory in Peschiera Borromeo (Milan), in the presence of local authorities and trade associations. “It fills us with pride – explains Uwe Lorenz, CEO Ametek Italia Srl MAE – to be able to finalize this project with strategic value for the future growth of our business unit activities”, while Stefano Milani, CEO Ametek Srl, adds: “with this investment, we create a pole of absolute excellence for the precision instruments on the Italian market”. The new factory, with an area of 7,500 sqm and 227 employees, was built in 6 months and will consolidate Ametek’s activities previously located in different units in Lombardy. “The ambitious growth projects of our companies – Milani continues – could no longer be managed with the fragmentation of the past; the market and customers expect from Ametek continuous innovation, development and efficiency levels that can be achieved only with the synergistic use of all our resources and the unification of the processes”. “The new factory – adds Antonella Perfetto, Ametek’s HR manager in Italy – will offer wider and more functional work spaces, guaranteeing our employees optimal working conditions and fostering greater synergies and exchanges of expertise. We believe that the quality of our products also passes through the quality of the working conditions and the opportunities for specialization and training that we are able to offer”. The new factory will be fully operational starting from January 2019: the first activities have already started in the last quarter of 2018.
