On 6th December Sacmi will open its doors to the public

Visits to the company's workshop and museum

As part of celebrations marking the 95th anniversary of its founding, Sacmi has chosen to organise a special in-house “open day” to honour the history of the cooperative and its protagonists. A history that dates back to that long-ago 1919, when nine young unemployed Imola-born mechanics and blacksmiths signed the founding statute of the Società Cooperativa Meccanici Imola, and continued with Sacmi playing a key role in the Italian economic boom alongside the nascent ceramic and packaging industry districts.

We’ll be flinging open the doors on Saturday 6 December, at 9 a.m., before providing, throughout the day, guided tours of the plant, which now employs over 1,000 people. In addition to the guided tour, which will let visitors get a close look at the cutting-edge technology that makes Sacmi a leader in several global businesses, participants can also learn about the Group’s history by visiting the Sacmi Museum (Must): the latter illustrates the fascinating journey from humble beginnings, the shift towards building the first own-brand machine, the post-war move to press production and, ultimately, the expansion on international markets that made Sacmi a global plant engineering player.

An opportunity, then, to celebrate our history, but also to reflect on the cooperative’s coming challenges and those faced by our community, Italian manufacturing and the country as a whole. An opportunity to recall and restate those values that have allowed to grow during these first 95 years: cooperation, mutual assistance, a focus on people and community and – albeit in a world vastly different from the one in which Sacmi was founded – the key value of looking to the future with confidence.
