Automation for the brickmaking industry – a further strategic role for Cosmec
In an industry undergoing profound worldwide change, Cosmec plays a central role in the heavy clay sector by designing and marketing cutting-edge automation solutions.
Since January, shares in the company have been owned not just by Sacmi, which will maintain a significant share of corporate capital, but also by established industry professionals who play active roles in running the company. The aim of this new company set-up is to achieve targeted development of the brick and structural ceramic business while keeping flat-extruded products under Sacmi control.
The hub for all Sacmi‘s Heavy Clay expertise, Cosmec is gearing up to respond to the needs of a complex market that is experiencing profound, dynamic change and growing fragmentation of the customer pool. Such changes demand a targeted response characterized by practical flexibility.
“For years now, Cosmec has been a key provider to the heavy clay industry“, explains Cosmec‘s CEO, Ernesto Barbieri, “a role it intends to maintain in the future. The purpose of this operation is to stay ahead of a fast-evolving market through carefully targeted diversification and reorganization.”
Cosmec will retain all its heavy clay expertise and, in the light of the excellent company management results recently achieved, remain at the complete service of its customers as an outstandingly skilled, reliable partner.
