Innovation never stops at the Limana production plant

09/04/2018

Limana, 9 April 2018Epta, the multinational group specialising in commercial refrigeration, today unveiled its Multi-Purpose Exhibition Space in its Limana production plant. The event was attended by the press and Local Authorities, represented by the Mayor of Limana Milena de Zanet, and the Chairman of Confindustria Belluno Dolomiti, Luca Barbini.

The development of this Space is part of wide-ranging strategy involving major investments for the company with the aim of improving its presence in the market. By positioning itself as a benchmark for Customers, Suppliers and Employees, the new showroom will be a showcase for “touching by hand”, discovering and appreciating the technology and quality that have always characterised products from Epta’s brands.

Today’s event will be an opportunity to look back at all the recent accomplishments. The plant has continued to receive major investments, totalling approximately 10 million euro in the last two years, with the aim of adopting Industry 4.0 technologies and improving the production processes. The new Glassware Department, which opened in 2016, generated 80 new workplaces and will help us to achieve a further increase in production capacity by the end of 2018. The aim of the plan is to achieve a continual improvement in both environmental terms through maximising the safeguarding of resources and energy efficiency, as demonstrated by the 50% reduction in energy consumption per unit produced, and in terms of the development of our staff. Indeed, it is through the commitment and desire of all our employees and co-workers that we can now celebrate this important result: the production of one and a half million units since the opening of the Limana premises in 1972.

This success deserves to be celebrated, thanks also to the Multi-Purpose Exhibition Space: this is a modern and dynamic environment of 600 m2 that is broken down into a main building, which serves as a showcase for new releases from the brands Costan, Bonnet Névé, Eurocryor, Misa and Iarp, a Training Centre & Test Space and a Conference Hall. It also has an area for the presentation of the most recent technical and technological innovations and Epta Service, the Group’s brand that specialises in post-sales services, to offer Customers a fully comprehensive service.

Marco Nocivelli, the Chairman and CEO of the Epta Group commented: “We are proud to share this important production target and our new project with our guests. With this multi-purpose space we wanted to create an environment that would reflect the identity and values of the Company.” and he concluded “Our objective is to contribute to transforming Limana into an internationally renowned hub, in which to meet Customers and professionals from the sector and discuss the latest technological targets and success stories.”
