Sacmi: sales top one billion

Annual report 2010 shows that revenues, driven by exports to the ‘BRIC’ countries, are up 6%

Sacmi is steadily putting the global recession behind it. Confirmation comes from the figures in the 2010 annual report – presented last 13th May to the general assembly – with Group sales returning above the 1 billion Euro mark (1,030 million as opposed to 972 million in 2009) and revenues up by 6%. Profits were also encouraging, increasing by 7 million.
As Sacmi’s Managing Director, Pietro Cassani, explains, this was a result in which several factors played a part, the key ones being the revival of ceramic machine and plant exports and the strong development of beverage&packaging, which has, over the last few months, seen revenue growth hit double figures.
In addition to external factors, such as recovering markets, Sacmi’s approach to the gradually recovering world economy has been characterised by a skilful policy of constant rationalisation. This has led to optimisation of costs and improved organisation of production processes. Moreover, planned investment remained high and remained unfaltering even during the most difficult months: investment in both technological innovation and the development of new markets, especially as regards the so-called “BRIC” – Brazil, Russia, India, China – area, which is driving the world economy. With growing demand from other key countries, such as Turkey and Iran, 2010 saw exports account for 90% of total sales.
A glance at the figures shows that in 2010 Group investments totalled 58 million Euros, spanning from R&D to the construction of new plants, from the purchase of packaging machines to the perfection of major takeovers. Sacmi’s goals for 2011? Firstly, to reinforce its position on markets; with regard to specific business units, that means maintaining leadership in ceramics and further development of the packaging sector. Secondly, to continue its policy of “strategic alliances”, such as that with IMA, based near Bologna, which led to the establishment of newco Carle&Montanari Holding, the first Italian chocolate giant, expected, this year, to generate sales of 100 million Euros.
