Italian Innovation in the Spotlight

Machines Italia takes “Turning innovation into productivity” on the road to major North American events.

If you make the purchasing decisions for your company, you have an enormous responsibility. You must know the ins and outs of production in a way no one else does—finding machines and systems solutions that are functional, reliable and durable, with readily available service and spare parts. You decide whether the return on investment ultimately can be realized. In short, much of your company’s success depends on your purchasing choices.

Italian machinery can make your decision easier.

That’s why Machines Italia, together with its partner associations, is proud to be a featured participant and/or sponsor of major industry events. Over the course of 2009/2010, Machines Italia will or is planning to appear at the events listed below.

To strengthen global competitiveness within the manufacturing industry, these events will include presentations on technological advances within the industry and instructional workshops on best practices. Machines Italia will be at these events to reveal the latest in Italian mechanical innovation, representing its partner associations and companies.

An example of such collaboration will be at the Canadian Manufacturing Technology Show taking place in Toronto, (October 19-22, 2009). Machines Italia together with UCIMU-SISTEMI PER PRODURRE, are two of the proud sponsors and participants at the show. At the show together with the show’s organizer, Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME), they will be hosting a number of technical presentations on the latest and most innovative technologies in the metalworking industry from Italy, bearing the Made in Italy label.
