We are a strategic sector consisting of modern and well-equipped companies that are prepared to provide the best service. Our technical staff are more than qualified to draw up highly complex projects and cover the requirements of all the sectors of the industry so they can improve their manufacturing processes, reduce costs and do so in the most demanding conditions of precision and timely delivery”.
He also made special mention of the importance of the support provided by AFMEC and AFM Cluster about promoting an industrial reactivation plan to assist in recovering the sector’s inertia. He intends to address various challenges as President of the association in terms of digitalization/Industry 4.0, close relationships with the companies involved, and attracting talent to the industry.
