Wednesday 14 April 2010
A world-leading next-generation plant equipped with two continuous technology lines for maximum production flexibility in terms of range and size, for making slabs with sides measuring over a metre in length: these are the features that constitute the strengths of the Marazzi Group’s new production plant in Casiglie, Sassuolo (MO, Italy), which was inaugurated on 20 April.
The ceremony was attended by Vasco Errani, President of the Emilia-Romagna region, Emilio Sabattini, President of the Province of Modena and Franco Manfredini, President of Confindustria Ceramica, who joined Filippo Marazzi, President of the Group, and Maurizio Piglione, CEO, for the cutting of the ribbon in front of 150 people comprised of representative local bodies and the Group’s major customers and suppliers.
The new Marazzi plant, a 35-million-euro investment, is a concentration of technology and innovation that leads the world in terms of the best, most innovative applied technology production processes in the ceramic tile sector. The plant’s continuous technology enables it to switch from one type of ceramic production to another according to market demand for size, thickness, colour and decoration. At full output the two lines have a quality ceramic tile production capacity of approximately four million square metres per year.
