Alberdi inaugurates new line and doubles output

A record year for the Argentine company that has focussed everything on Sacmi technology

South America: fast-developing economies that are also essential markets for Italian technology suppliers. And on those markets there is a major player, a company that has succeeded in revolutionising the entire Argentine tile market over the last few years. That company is Alberdi, already the owner of several production plants and now at the helm of a new project in which it has chosen Sacmi as its main industrial partner to achieve further, even more ambitious goals.

Despite the difficult internal and international economic scenario that characterised 2008-2009, Alberdi nevertheless decided to invest in a new plant that was built in 2010 in the city of Salta, the regional capital of the same-named province in the country’s north-east. Supplied by Sacmi, these new machines – started up barely a year ago – have allowed Alberdi to produce, on just one line, over 18,000 square metres a day.

The market response was so positive that it convinced Alberdi, not even a year after the initial start up, to purchase further Sacmi machines, the aim being to more than double output and improve on the already outstanding output performance of the first line.
With this latest order Alberdi has focussed on continuity by once again purchasing PH 3020 presses with four 45x45 die outlets. There is also a five-tier horizontal drier and a kiln over 180 m long. Sorting and palletizing lines – all supplied by Sacmi, of course – complete this latest order.

Already delivered and assembled, this new line was officially inaugurated on 28th March. The inauguration was attended by Argentina’s President, Cristina Fernandez, the governor of Salta, Juan Manuel Urtubey, the mayor, Miguel Isa, and several other key figures from the worlds of politics, associations and social affairs, thus underlining the importance of this plant as example of industrial development in the country.
