A graduate in Chemical Engineering, Claudio Marani is now taking 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 contributes more than 60 % of the Sacmi Group’s consolidated sales.

Marani thanked the Board for placing their trust in him. 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“.
