OMET has opened a new and larger facility dedicated to the production of tissue converting machines. OMET's growth in the past few years required new spaces that would allow it to support the development of new technologies in the industry.
"The significant increase in orders for machinery in recent years was not been the only reason that led us to implement a further expansion of the production department of OMET Srl," says Marco Calcagni, sales and marketing director of the Italian company. "Our machines division for tissue needs room to develop new projects that we are pursuing with great conviction and confidence and that will be the leading technology in the industry in the coming years. This is only the first step of a strategic plan of development for tissue that will provide important new investments over the next two or three years. This is definitely a first major change that will bring great advantages in terms of production efficiency and capacity to meet the growing demands of our machines from all over the world. "
The new facility, operational since October 2012, consists of 1,450 square meters dedicated to the manufacturing sector and 550 square meters of office space. The warehouse and offices were completely renovated following all safety and environmental regulations. On the roof of the plant were installed photovoltaic panels that help make OMET's new facility a "green” factory.
