Sama Invested over EUR 1,2 million
Sama Maschinenbau, the world-beating Sacmi Group/IT company that specialises in the design of machines and complete plants for the tableware industry, invested a staggering EUR 1,2 million in an array of improvement projects.
Thanks to this investment – which focussed on the Weißenstadt plant, in Fichtelgebirge, Western Bavaria – Sama has successfully made improvements to plant logistics and energy efficiency by renewing and modernising its output equipment. For example, a new 5-axis milling machine was installed in the mould construction department. Another key focus of investment was the actual building: the new roof which connects the two main factory sheds. The opening ceremony was attended by Paolo Mongardi, CEO Group; Pietro Cassani, Group Managing Director; Daniele Coralli, Sanitaryware and Tableware Division Manager; and Emanuele Mazzini, CFO Sama. Sama received, for the first time since its founding in 1996, a public contribution from the Wunsiedel Development Authority.
