Seventh complete Sacmi line for Granito Forte

A long-standing partner of Sacmi group – the first Sacmi supply dates back to 1995 – this Abruzzo-based firm has just purchased a further complete line for its plant in Fresagrandinaria (Chieti)

One of Italy’s biggest manufacturing complexes, the Granito Forte ceramics company in Fresagrandinaria (Chieti, Italy) completed, in June, the purchase of a seventh complete line for the manufacture of ceramic floor and wall tiles, entirely supplied by Sacmi. This latest production line for traditional sizes (from 15x15 to 60x60) is currently being installed and is expected to come on stream in the first half of 2016.
The agreement between Sacmi and the management of Granite Forte was reached at the highest levels, with the direct involvement of technical manager, Mr. Fiorenzo Marrone, and of the financial and administration manager, Mr. Gegi Lugari, who have believed in the strategic value of this investment project since the very beginning.

The showpieces of this new line are a continuous mill, downstream of which there are two new Sacmi PH 6500 presses, among the most popular on the market for the production of both standard and medium-large tiles. Then come the 25-metre-long horizontal dryer and a 117-metre roller kiln equipped with all the latest heat recovery and energy saving devices. Sacmi has also supplied the loading and unloading systems that service the kiln. Last but not least come the sorting line and storage system, with automated high-efficiency stackers and palletizers.

A leading player on the Italian ceramic scene for over twenty years and one of just a few manufacturers in central-southern Italy capable of both defending and increasing its market share, Granito Forte has once again decided to implement its investment decisions by working with Sacmi. The first Sacmi supply to this Abruzzo-based firm dates back to 1995: now, with this latest project, the number of Sacmi machines installed at the Fresagrandinaria plant totals no less than 14 presses, 7 dryers, 7 kilns, 7 sorting lines, 3 spray dryers and 3 continuous mills. For Sacmi, then, this confirms the soundness of a long-standing industrial partnership that has, over the years, gone from strength to strength thanks to comprehensive, integrated solutions that span from body preparation to warehouse logistics.
