Sacmi, a double dose of success on the strategic Spanish market

Sales to long-standing Group customers remained not only resilient but actually increased. There were major “new entries”, one of the most noteworthy being the Iberian market’s leading producer in terms of volumes, the Pamesa Group.

Sacmi has strengthened its position on the Spanish market, with sales in 2016 higher than those in the previous year, demonstrating that Sacmi continues to be esteemed by long-standing customers and is more than capable of attracting new ones, even in technological areas traditionally dominated by competitors. This, then, was the conclusion reached by the Group Ceramics Division’s analysis of its performance in Spain, one of the world’s top five ceramic-making nations and, along with China and Italy, responsible for two-thirds of global exports.

A look at the data for the Spanish market shows that the increased sales regard all the machine types in the range, from energy-efficient EKO kilns (a total of 17 over the two years, 9 in 2016) to hydraulic presses (in total 11 machines sold in 2016, 25 in the two years assessed); key orders have been placed for high tonnage presses specifically designed to handle large formats. Note also the 7 multilayer driers sold since the beginning of the year (out of a total of 17 horizontal and vertical driers sold during the two-year reference period).

Following the excellent feedback obtained at the Tecnargilla fair in Rimini - in terms of both interest shown and the flow of visitors to the Sacmi stand - the Group continues to lead the Spanish market in the ceramic body preparation field: 7 modular mills of varying size and dimensions were sold between 2015 and 2016, plus 4 spray driers, including the all-new ATM 250, a next-generation machine launched this year and specifically designed to meet the needs of the Spanish market.
