This recognition , by Manufacturing Technology Insights, therefore comes as a great honour to us and we would like to thank the judges for their exhaustive research at arriving at their decision,” said Christophe Rizzo, CEO EMEA / Americas, IM Group.
IM Group has manufacturing plants in three continents with presence in five continents across 15 countries including India.
The company also announced the completion of a major installation in Western Europe.
The project, led by Oliver Daulon, general manager, Inkmaker France and area sales manager for IM GROUP, was completed in record time by a specialised team at IM Group's headquarters in Turin, Italy.
“It was challenging for our colleagues, to work through Covid-related restrictions, in meeting the tight deadline but the positive attitude of the team, led by Enrico Mattiazzi, ensured that all ran smoothly and to plan," explained Olivier.
The project, involving water-based state-of the-art gravimetric and volumetric dispensing technology, agitators and quality-control stations interconnected via flexible conveying systems, brought together several components from the various brands within IM GROUP.
