Cooperativa Ceramica D'Imola Chooses Ancora Technology

June 16, 2011

Ancora Group has received an order worth more than €2 million (~ $2.9 million) from Cooperativa Ceramica d’Imola for two complete lapping and squaring lines. The equipment includes score-and-snap machines, a waxing machine, a cutting machine, and a range of mechanical parts and components that will complement the technology currently installed at the customer’s facilities in Borgo Tossignano and Faenza.

“It’s certainly an important order for our company and is also an encouraging sign for the future, revealing a desire on the part of companies to resume investments in technology and product development,” said Fabio Corradini, vice chairman of the Ancora Group.

This order reportedly strengthens Ancora Group’s Italian leadership position in the design and manufacture of machines and lines for ceramic tile finishing operations. Cooperativa Ceramica d’Imola is a leading company in the ceramic sector, with four brands that operate in the international market and a production capacity of around 31 million square meters of tile a year.
