Guests included the President of the Tuscany Region Eugenio Giani, the councillor for manufacturing Leonardo Marras and the mayor of Torrita, Giacomo Grazi

Cassioli blew out the candles on its 80th birthday with a huge party, held in the very factory where the company began back in 1943.

The new production area, built in 2020 in the midst of the pandemic, was dressed for the occasion with a stage, lighting and a catering service, turning the factory into a genuine events space.

The evening opened with a display by the Torrita band of drummers and flag-throwers, followed by the company’s president Paolo Cassioli, who welcomed the guests.

The stage was then taken by Torrita mayor Giacomo Grazi and the President of the Tuscany Region Eugenio Giani, who thanked Cassioli for the invitation, and above all for being a solid business and a source of pride for the whole of Tuscany.

The party continued with music and fun with Alessandro Paci and Mago Kagliostro, who entertained the guests with comic sketches and magic tricks.

A wonderful evening was enjoyed by employees, representatives of Cassioli’s foreign branches, the company’s main stakeholders and local politicians and institutions.

Among delicious food, music and great company, the key moment of the evening was when Marcello, Paolo and Carlo Cassioli, honorary president, president and CEO respectively, gave an overview of Cassioli’s 80-year story and thanked all the guests and employees who have contributed to the company’s success. There were plenty of moving moments during their speeches, such as the emotional memories of the founders Bernardino and Ideale Cassioli, who started the company during the Second World War.

 “Cassioli today is an international company, it’s true”, said CEO Carlo Cassioli. “We work with customers and partners from all over the world on a daily basis… but throughout it all, if there’s something our company has never abandoned, it’s our birthplace. We decided to keep our headquarters right here, where the company was born, grew up and developed over the years. We don’t want to be one of those businesses that get rich and then move their entire production away, to the detriment of the local area and the community; we like to create value in the area, provide work for the people who live here, whose families are here, who want to bring up their children here”.

The company has numerous ongoing and recently completed projects, like its joint venture with the multinational SACMI, a preview of which was presented during the evening. With SACMI – world leader in advanced technologies for the ceramics, plastics, food & beverage and packaging sectors – the company has launched SacmiCassioli Intralogistics, offering innovative solutions for the management, control and optimisation of flows of materials and data within the factory.

The party also included the prize-giving for the ten suppliers who received “Gold Supplier” awards for making the Cassioli production chain even more excellent, sustainable and innovative in terms of key parameters like quality, reliability, strategic importance, turnover, sustainability and attitude to innovation.

The evening concluded with the traditional cutting of the cake by the Cassioli board members, accompanied by music and a toast by all the guests.

It’s been 80 years of targeted goals, changes and decisions, some of them bold; 80 years of constant effort and plenty of satisfaction”, said company president Paolo Cassioli. “However, we want to see this anniversary as merely a stage on the journey we’ve embarked upon, and we’re sure there are many more to come, with the same enthusiasm and tenacity that have motivated us from the outset.

Now in its third generation, Cassioli – which currently has over 400 employees – operates four factories around the world (Italy, Brazil, Poland and the USA), and its products and services meet the needs of customers in a range of sectors, from intralogistics and manufacturing to airports and tyres.

80 years of operation at the Torrita headquarters are further proof that Cassioli is firmly anchored in its place of origin, despite its strong growth in the past 10 years and its major expansion overseas.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Today’s international uncertainty and the economic crisis of the last few years, first due to the Covid-19 pandemic and then the Russian-Ukrainian war, have led to inevitable supply problems for all industries.

Bottlenecks in supply chains are complicating life for many companies, including those in the automation sector, which are experiencing numerous supply problems.

The worst implications arise in the spare parts replacement cycle.

When a machine or piece of equipment breaks down, the main enemy to be reckoned with is time: the productivity of workers decreases more and more as the amount of time the machine is idle increases. If you do not already have the components you need to repair the equipment, you can hardly hope for downtime to be limited to two or three hours.

Plants with high levels of automation require extraordinary attention from a management point of view, since in the event of anomalies or breakdowns, sudden stoppages may occur, with inevitable drops in production or, in the most serious cases, total plant shutdowns.

It is therefore important to carefully manage the supply of spare parts so that slowdowns and production stoppages can be dealt with promptly.

How can we help you?

Our experts know your plant inside out and can help you select the most useful spare parts so that you can be sure of prompt action and the shortest possible time to restore your machinery.

Act now to stop production stoppages!

Cassioli’s Brazilian branch celebrated this important milestone with a party attended by employees, customers and suppliers.

The celebrations for the 25th anniversary of Cassioli Brasil – Brazilian branch of the Cassioli Group, which opened in Jundiaí in 2002 – ended just a few hours ago.

Born to meet the needs of the Central and South American market, over the years Cassioli Brasil expanded day after day and now has become a reference for customers in South America and beyond.

In 25 years of activity, the Brazilian company has provided many jobs and today counts almost 100 employees and commercial partners in various South and Central American countries.

The party was attended by the Cassioi management board, all employees, and numerous guests, including customers, suppliers, and friends and family.

Partygoers enjoyed good food, music, and great company. Celebrations ended with the “Gold Supplier” awards to the best 10 suppliers and the presentation of commemorative plates to employees who worked at the Jundiaí branch for 25 years, in recognition of their commitment and dedication to the company.

“When I arrived in Brazil, Jundiaí was the best place to invest and that decision is still proving to be right” – said Carlo Cassioli, CEO of the Group, after thanking all present for their participation. “Today, 25 years later, Cassioli Brasil can look back on a brilliant past made of sacrifices but also of great satisfactions for the successes and targets reached. But there is more to come. We look to the future with hope and our objective is to further strengthen our position on the South American market. To this end we have already started work to double our production plant and our firm intention is to invest more in the country”.

Quality, efficiency, and swift response to customer requests is what makes Cassioli Brasil a successful and consolidated presence on the market and is also the reason why big names such as Colgate, Unilever, Tramontina, Leroy Merlin, Whirlpool and many others are among its customers.

Today, the Brazilian branch can count on a competent team of professionals of the automation sector, from technicians to engineers, including commercial and new professional figures who year after year contribute to further improving and growing the company.

It was an intense and emotional day that greatly satisfied organizers and met everyone’s expectations: hoping that this may be just the start and that there will soon be more occasions to celebrate and share special moments like this, we thank all participants who with their contribution allowed Cassioli Brasil to become what it is today.

 

On the occasion of the 25th anniversary of the opening of the Cassioli Brazil office in Jundiaí, our CEO Carlo Cassioli met the Prefect of Jundiaí Luiz Fernando Machado.

During the meeting, our CEO presented and defined the terms of the expansion of the production plant of the Brazilian headquarters in Cassioli, which will lead to a doubling of production capacity and therefore to new jobs for the country.

With this important project, which we hope will bring a lifeblood for the development of the entire territory of Jundiaí, Cassioli confirms itself as a solid company with a great international scope, which will thus guarantee greater productivity for the company, in order to better respond. to the needs of customers in Central and South America and beyond.

Almost 80 years after its foundation, Cassioli takes another important step, opening a new manufacturing plant in North America.

After settling with the first commercial office in Atlanta in 2009, this year Cassioli decided to further consolidate its presence in the United States with the purchase of a new production site at the Creekside Industrial Park in Newnan, Coweta County, Georgia.

“The decision to expand our presence in the North American area with the first US production site in Newnan was an essential step in the growth strategy of our business” – said Carlo Cassioli, CEO of Cassioli. “Over the past few decades one of the main trends in the US manufacturing industry has been the increase in the productivity of the sector. Global competitive pressures have forced companies to become more resilient, doubling the output per worker. In this context, automation is a key factor to carry on this trend and the possibility to have a production site in the States allows us to expand the potential of the company, hiring new staff and guaranteeing a greater presence in the area “.

It is from the beginning of 2021 that Cassioli has worked to find a suitable area that could combine the favorable position and the innovative business-oriented approach: Coweta County was the strategic choice to raise the new plant. The factory was opened this year and over the next five years aims to diversify and make the Group’s production capacity grow further .

“Being finally present in a structured way in the United States will allow us to consolidate our presence in the North American market, reducing intervention times and increasing professional services on site for current and future customers” – said Marco Cencetti, CEO of Cassioli USA. “Thinking globally, acting locally” is our motto, which over the years has been promoted and conveyed to all Cassioli business bodies: we as Cassioli USA, we can’t wait to carry on this philosophy “.

The Newnan plant, which currently measures approximately 20,000 square feet, offices and warehouse included, joins the historic production sites of Cassioli in Italy, Poland and Brazil and the numerous commercial partners spread all over the world. The process of internationalization therefore continues and the Grup, having reached the threshold of 80 years of activity, is able to guarantee the customer a 360 ° service, strengthened by the experience acquired, the great knowledge of the sector and the continuous orientation towards growth and innovation.

Tire Distribution Centers have acquired considerable importance in the market and continue to record significant and continuous growth. This increase is linked to the numerous services they are able to offer both to the capillary network represented by retailers and to manufacturers. Distribution Centers offer different types of services, including:

Commercial:

The growing market demand is pushing more and more Tire Distribution Centers towards a path of business process innovation, moving from semi-automatic distribution systems to fully automated systems.

The Cassioli company, which boasts 80 years of experience in industrial automation, as well as an internal Tire Division representing the fastest growing business sector, has decided to invest heavily in the world of tire distribution, creating a research and development department dedicated to the study of specific automatic systems for pneumatic distribution centers.

Cassioli has designed, built and patented automatic systems capable of significantly increasing the productivity and storage capacity of distribution centers, drastically reducing the number of errors compared to semi-automatic systems, in which manual operations are more numerous and more complex compared to fully automated systems.

Below are some features of the Cassioli automatic systems:

  • Automatic identification and control of tires entering the system;
  • Storage inside automatic warehouses especially designed to optimize space capacity;
  • Fast and reliable recovery system for goods to be shipped, with logics taking into account the analyzed outgoing flows;
  • Fully customizable automatic labeling systems;
  • Ergonomic and easy-to-manage vehicle loading systems.

Companies that turn to Cassioli for the construction of an automated system, can take advantage of a 360 ° service for the construction of turnkey systems.

For each project Cassioli follows each of these phases:

  • Feasibility analysis (project analysis; data analysis; preliminary studies; cost estimation);
  • Engineering (project; simulation; planning; design);
  • Production (mechanical component; electrical component; software; testing);
  • Project management (procurement management; installation; cost control, quality control; management system);
  • Customer Service (analysis; training; maintenance; technical support; revamping).

 

The postal operator Poczta Polska has chosen Cassioli for the supply of special carousels for parcels and large objects

In order to optimize logistics processes and increase its services, Poczta Polska has decided to invest in Cassioli automatic systems to improve its offer and thus adapt the processes to customer expectations. The Polish postal operator asked Cassioli Polska to design a ring-shaped conveyor system, very similar in design to that of airport baggage carousels, to support the sorting of oversized shipments. The device will guarantee a much more efficient management, reaching up to 20,000 shipments per day. It is a proven solution that has been operating successfully since last year in Komorniki, near Poznań, and in Zabrze, enabling faster and more efficient shipment processing.

Poczta Polska therefore continues to invest in the automation of logistics processes, according to the development strategy adopted on the CEP market (Couriers, Express and Parcels): the company will in fact allocate approximately PLN 2.5 million for this purpose.

Automation of Poczta Polska is one of the key activities included in the company’s strategy for the three-year period 2021-2023. The investments represent a response to the development of the e-commerce sector, which has significantly increased its share in the market. The upgrades will have a positive impact on the efficiency of handling the growing volume of parcels; A new sorting system has already been installed at the Niepołomice plant and by the end of February these devices will also be installed in Pruszcz Gdański, Wroclaw and Warsaw.

Cassioli once again stands out as a provider of cutting-edge automation solutions, capable of responding to the needs of the most diverse market sectors. Thanks to the internal know-how acquired in over 70 years of activity and the development of patented solutions, Cassioli develops modern and highly efficient technologies, allowing the customer to obtain customized and highly performing systems.
