Sacmi Group, Claudio Marani is the new General Manager

Currently the general manager of the Ceramics Division - the Group’s core business in terms of volumes - Marani has over 35 years’ experience at Sacmi. His mandate: “to continue the policies of investment and continuous innovation that have taken the Sacmi Group to the peak of manufacturing success”

Claudio Marani is the new General Manager of the Sacmi Group: his appointment by the Board of Directors was made official on 11/10/16.

Claudio Marani started working at Sacmi in 1981. Since then he has held various positions abroad, first as project manager in North Africa (for what was Sacmi’s biggest turnkey contract in the eighties) then as area manager for various countries around the world, including the United States, Turkey and all of Eastern Europe.

In 1997 he became sales manager at Sacmi Impianti Milan, a long-standing branch of the parent company which, during that period, achieved sales that accounted for 60% of the Group’s volumes. In the early 2000s, he became the general manager of the Ceramics Division, a position he still holds today.

A graduate in Chemical Engineering, Claudio Marani now takes the helm of the SACMI Group. He brings all the experience and know-how gained during his years as head of the Ceramics Division, which comprises four business units (tiles, sanitaryware, heavy clay, special pressings) and which, with over 60% of the Sacmi Group’s overall volumes, is the world’s leading supplier of machines and plants for the ceramic industry.

In thanking the cooperative’s Board of Directors for placing their trust in him, Marani underlined how he intends to move the Group forwards "by continuing the policy of investment and continuous innovation that has brought the Sacmi Group global manufacturing success".

President Paolo Mongardi took the opportunity of Mr. Marani’s appointment to emphasize the "encouraging results achieved in the first half of 2016". Following years in which the Sacmi Group posted some of its best-ever results, 2016 "promises to be equally positive in terms of both sales and employment and further growth in sales volumes across all major businesses and markets."
