The members of Acimall have decided to form the new association Confindustria Macchine.
This is the first step towards a new project that will enable Acimall, the association representing Italian wood and furniture technology manufacturers, to offer new services, and most of all, present a new vision to its members.
The assembly unanimously approved the proposal by the board of directors to carry on the process for the creation of Federazione Confindustria Macchine per ceramica, legno, plastica e gomma, imballaggio e confezionamento, (Confindustria federation for ceramic, wood, plastic and rubber, packaging machines), an organization that will allow for a stronger representation not only within Confindustria, but also in the political and economic life of Italy.
The new association will represent some 1,300 companies with 70,000 employees and a total turnover of 19 billion euro, more than 75 per cent of which are generated through exports, offering a strong contribution to Italy’s trade balance.
The new association will also provide additional services, consulting and training to the member companies of Acimall, Acimac (technologies for ceramics), Amaplast (plastic machines) and Ucima (packaging technology), the four Confindustria associations that have joined the project so far.
“It’s time to make new choices that help the manufacturers of instrumental goods face a more and more competitive market with smarter tools,” said Acimall president Enrico Aureli, one of the first supporters of this ambitious project.
“The partnership with Acimac, Amaplast and Ucima – which we are confident will be joined by other associations of the Federmacchine galaxy we will continue to collaborate with – will help us represent our positions even more effectively in an increasingly global scenario, where the challenge from China and other emerging countries must be faced with equal rules for everyone. Together, we will give broader responses to the challenging topic of the green transition of our companies, and the countless new issues that our entrepreneurs must face in a world that presents more and more complex challenges.”
