In this way, the entire BHS of Alghero Airport will be ready to better manage the large flow of passengers expected for the new 2023 Summer Season.

 

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.

Our company requested the energy audit of the Torrita di Siena headquarters by ESAERG S.R.L., the energy service company certified according to the UNI CEI 11352 standard, identified by Legislative Decree no. 102 of 2014 and authorized for the preparation of such diagnoses. The diagnosis will be conducted and carried out according to the provisions of Article 8 of Legislative Decree no.102 of 2014, the reference documentation produced by ENEA and MISE and the reference technical standards, with particular regard to UNI CEI EN 16247 (Parts 1, 2, 3 and 4).

The energy audit aims to provide adequate knowledge of the energy consumption profile of the entire Cassioli site (methods of use of the site, measurement and accounting of qualitative and quantitative data) by identifying and quantifying the opportunity for energy savings in terms of costs and benefits. A correct Energy Diagnosis will make it possible to understand the real share of electricity – motive+, thermal or refrigeration – that is consumed by a specific department or by “production lines”; it will essentially allow us to understand how much the heating, air conditioning, lighting or compressed air system “weighs” on the overall energy needs of the plant.

Indeed, that Diagnosis can represent the first step towards a new management approach and the rationalization of internal processes, with the aim of equipping our company with an energy management system according to the ISO 50001 standard and then transforming the legislative obligation into a real opportunity for the company itself, identifying the “state of affairs” or “zero” time of the activity (in terms of energy), in order to understand how to think about efficiency measures (such as, for example, the use of LED lighting, the increase in photovoltaic production, the efficiency of the thermal power plant, the efficiency of the factory pneumatic system or the use of electric vehicles).

The energy audit will cover all the energy vectors (electric, thermal or cooling energy) used in the Torrita production site and will consider the supply, internal generation, distribution and final use of each of them; it will also consider the data from analysis and monitoring of the site’s consumption, including the fuels (diesel) used by the means of transport for goods and for Cassioli staff.

Cassioli, together with its partner Diamond Phoenix, renews its participation in IMHX, the most important event in the United Kingdom dedicated to logistics, which annually sees the participation of many suppliers and buyers from all over the world.

IMHX brings together the entire world of logistics in a single event, from the supply chain to the handling of materials and raw materials, up to intensive storage with automatic warehouses.

Cassioli will present its innovative storage solutions, optimizing the customer’s needs and the goods to be managed, in relation to size, performance, conservation and recovery methods.

The IMHX will take place from Tuesday 6 to Thursday 8 September in NEC Birmingham: Cassioli is waiting for you at booth #5AM24.

Cassioli continues its commitment to an increasingly sustainable company.
Thanks to the nearly 500 photovoltaic panels (Canadian Solar with a nominal power of 315 Wp each) installed above our new industrial building, we have achieved the production of 250,000 kWh of energy from renewable sources. Of these, 230,000 kWh were self-consumed within the company for the needs of the work activity, while the remaining 20,000 kWh were fed back into the grid through the so-called “on-site exchange”. Thanks to the use of photovoltaic panels, our company has recorded a saving of 162,000 kg of carbon dioxide released into the air, equal to the absorption capacity of over 6000 trees. An important step forward to contribute to the protection of the environment, implementing green policies that aim to produce clean electricity and make us more aware of the important role that each of us has in respecting the ecosystem that surrounds us.

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.

Cassioli Polska was awarded the Diamentów Forbesa, an important recognition that Forbes and ING Groep assigned to some companies in Lodz.

The award received by the Managing Director of Cassioli Polska, Mario Roghi, was presented by Robert Olesiński, Regional Director for Corporate Affairs of the Poznań Region, who congratulated the entrepreneurs on the competitiveness and international vocation of these companies.

Cassioli Polska has distinguished itself as one of the small-medium enterprises of the Lodz voivodeship which obtained revenue up to 50 million PLN, such that the region ranks sixth in Poland in terms of gross domestic product generated.

Once again a very important recognition which underlines the solidity and growth of the Cassioli Group even beyond national borders.

 

 

 

 

 

The new warehouse for Cosentino, leader for design surfaces, has been installed in Cantoria

Cassioli crosses once again national borders with the project realized in Spain for Cosentino Group. The Spanish multinational company, which produces and distributes innovative and sustainable surfaces for the world of design and architecture, turned to Cassioli to fully automate the logistics of the Silestone® and DEKTON® systems.

The project, in addition to the automatic warehouse, included the creation of an automatic system dedicated to the collection of the slabs from the production lines, their transport and the integrated management of the distribution center with ERP / SAP of Cosentino, which also managed the planning and preparation of loads before shipment.

The customer requested that the automated warehouse for the storage of finished products be divided into 6 independent parts, each equipped with a stacker crane, in order to guarantee greater flexibility in the event of damage or partial blocking of the system; the handling area had to be composed of 4 independent areas with sawhorses for the slabs.

 

The project was designed from the outset as a modular installation: there were built 2 blocks with 3 stacker cranes each and 4 automatic preparation points for slabs. Cosentino requested to treat each slab in a unique way, in order to have a total traceability of each of them and of the information contained within them (barcode), i.e. production, storage and shipping parameters.

After a careful analysis of Cosentino’s needs, Cassioli designed an automated warehouse 4,500 square meters wide and 32 meters high, with a capacity of 11,500 packages, equipped with 9 stacker cranes (load capacity up to 3,500 kg). Entrances and exits to the warehouse can be carried out on two levels, while the preparation of orders takes place at level 0, through automatic systems specially designed for Cosentino processes.

The packages arrive from the production lines through automatic conveyors and SLS shuttles, then they are directed to a shape and data control system (automatic reading of all the bar codes), which verifies their suitability.

If the system detects that the package is correct in all its parameters, it continues the path, otherwise it is rejected and submitted to the control of the Cassioli software. Once the parcel reaches the front of the warehouse, it is directed to a specific warehouse through SLS system (Shuttle Loop System) to the entry position, where it is picked up by the stacker crane designated by the Cassioli WMS software.

When a package is required for the preparation of a specific order, it is picked up by the stacker crane in the warehouse and then placed in the special order preparation area by means of shuttles, to give greater flexibility and ensure that all packages can be addressed to any preparation area.

The system takes the slabs one by one following the specific sequence requested in the loading order; in the event that there are slabs in excess, the load returns to the warehouse and the slabs are grouped in a new load, always automatically.

Once ready, the load is taken to an automatic strapping station and then made available to the LGV (Laser Guided Vehicles) to be placed in a temporary buffer or to be loaded directly onto the truck, through the automatic loading system.

Besides the warehouse, Cassioli has created a handling system for Cosentino consisting of chain conveyors, roller conveyors and specific tilting devices for slabs. The handling system is integrated with elevators for slabs and packs and with special manipulators for slab preparation, that handle one slab at a time.

Every single slab is coded and traced thanks to a special system that allows to record specific data and dimensions. The entire Cosentino distribution center is managed by ERP / SAP software, perfectly integrated with the Cassioli management software that manages all devices and machinery for a complete warehouse automation.

Thanks to the synergy developed between the Cosentino designers and the Cassioli experts, the new Cosentino warehouse has recorded a significant increase in storage capacity and complete traceability of all the materials handled, thanks to the perfect integration between the Cassioli management system and the software of the customer. Furthermore, it is important to point out that it was met the technological challenge of sending the slabs to the customers in the same conditions as before the automation.
