At the end of September, Raffaele Abbruzzetti — managing director of Arburg Srl
— opened the new premises of the Italian subsidiary in Peschiera Borromeo.
The event was attended by more than 100 guests, along with managing directors Gerhard Böhm and Guido Frohnhaus as well as Stephan Doehler, Arburg’s European sales director. The subsequent Covid-compliant Open House event in October attracted some 200 guests.
The Arburg subsidiary in Italy has ‘remodelled’ its existing building in Peschiera Borromeo and expanded it by 80%. Covering some 2,000m2
of floor space, the new premises offer more space not only for customer support and training but also for larger conferences and events.
Mr Böhm, Arburg’s managing director (sales), said: “With this event and the expansion of the subsidiary, we are sending a positive message for the future and underlining the great importance that Italy has for us as our most important European foreign market.”
Mr Abbruzzetti added: “We have been present in Italy for almost 30 years and are a solid and reliable partner for production-efficient plastics processing. Our 42-strong Italian team provides customers with support ranging from application technology consulting and mould testing to training and after-sales service.”
The larger showroom now offers space for up to 10 Allrounder injection moulding machines, presenting a broad cross-section of the Arburg portfolio. Customers can test their own moulds on various hydraulic, hybrid and electric Allrounders — plus there are now special areas for Arburg ‘plastic freeforming’ on the Freeformer 3-D printing machine.
