The general assembly of ACIMALL, the Italian woodworking machinery and tools manufacturers’ association has unanimously re-elected President Lorenzo Primultini and appointed two new vice presidents.
Lorenzo Primultini, a mechanical engineer with a master in business administration from the University of Chicago Booth School of Business, president of Primultini in Marano Vicentino (Vicenza) – was re-elected president of ACIMALL, the Confindustria member association representing Italian woodworking technology manufacturers, by unanimous vote.
The assembly also appointed two new vice presidents: Luigi De Vito and Raphael Prati.
De Vito is the director of the Wood Machinery Division at SCM Group, after longstanding experience in Unilever and Biesse; since September 2016 he has served as vice president at Eumabois, the European federation of national associations of wood technology companies.
Prati is the corporate marketing & communications director at Biesse Group. A trained aerospace engineer, he has previously worked with Decathlon, Augusta/Finmeccanica, Airbus and SCM Group.
“I am very satisfied with the team we have created,” said Primultini.
“ACIMALL is even stronger and united, guided by a board that reflects an industry where big industrial groups stand side-by-side with small and medium enterprises, typical expression of the industrial landscape of this and other made-in-Italy segments. Such collaboration and confrontation have always been instrumental in the success of our companies.”
