Paolo Sassi on Course for ACIMAC Chairmanship

Following consultations with members, ACIMAC’s designation committee has chosen Paolo Sassi as the nominee for the next Chairman of the Italian Ceramic Machinery and Equipment Manufacturers’ Association.

The appointment was made during the Members’ Meeting in June. Paolo Sassi, Chairman of BMR S.p.a., is the nominee for the Chairmanship of ACIMAC – Italian Cer­amic Plant and Machinery Manufacturers’ Association. Following consultations with member companies, the designation committee consisting of past Chairmen Franco Stefani, Pietro Cassani and Pierluigi Ponzoni submitted Sassi’s nomination to the Association’s Board of Directors. The Board of Directors expressed its approval for the nomination to be submitted to the Members’ Meeting to be held in June. The Members’ Meeting will elect Sassi, currently Vice-Chairman, to take over from Fabio Tarozzi at the helm of the Association for the 4-year period 2016–2020. Paolo Sassi, born in Scandiano, Reggio Emilia, on 18 April 1955, began working at BMR Costruzioni Meccaniche in 1985 as a Sales Engineer. In 1990 he acquired a shareholding in the new company BMR Spa, a leading manufacturer of end-of-line machinery for the ceramic industry. In 2001 he became the majority shareholder and was appointed Chairman. In 2004, BMR acquired Cemar, a company based in Schio (Vicenza) specialising in the production of polishing machines, and appointed Sassi Chairman. This acquisition confirmed BMR’s leading role in the design and production of complete lines for polishing/honing and treatment and for scoring/snapping and squaring of ceramic tiles and panels. In 2016, BMR also opened a logistics centre in Dickson, Tennessee/US.
