Moretto Stages First ExpoTech

From February 3-6, Moretto S.p.A., Massanzago, Italy, held their first "ExpoTech", a symposium dedicated to auxiliary equipment for plastic material processing. The event, to which the company had invited 800 guests, took place within the context of the regional trade fair SamuPlast in Pordenone, Italy.

On 1,600 m2 of exhibition space (almost the entire Hall 1) Moretto presented 250 machines from the areas conveying, drying, dosing, storage, granulating, tempering and cooling. Three production islands were devoted to aspects of injection molding, extrusion and blow molding. Workshops and lectures supplemented the program. A shuttle bus brought interested parties to the company headquarters to Massanzago.

During a press conference, both Renato Moretto, founder and CEO of Moretto, and Mario Maggiani, representative of the Italian Federation Assocomaplast, declared the crisis of the Italian plastics industry to be over. According to current statistics, the Italian plastics machinery industry made a total turnover of EUR 2,800 million in 2015. Thus, the previous record from 2006 (EUR 2,750 million) was exceeded. After an export share of 90-95% in recent years, the domestic market in 2015 has recovered well, according to Maggiani.

This view is shared by Renato Moretto, who was able to announce a total turnover of EUR 60 million for his company in 2015, an increase of 32 % compared to 2014. The Italian domestic market alone grew by 26 %. For the current year though Moretto does not expect a further increase. With 250 employees in Massanzago and 100 employees in offices worldwide, the company has an export share of 80 % with Germany taking the first place and France being in second place.

Later this year, Moretto has plans for a factory expansion. At the company headquarters in Massanzago a new building with 10,000 m2 will be built, 3,000 m2 of which alone are to be used for training. Once the approval of the authorities is carried out, construction work will start.

Furthermore, Renato Moretto announced the "Project Moretto 4.0". This three-year project aims to bring together the topics digital production, technology leadership and sustainability and is supposed to lead to a data revolution: humans and machines will communicate efficiently, automation and e-commerce will be expanded and remote working via screen will be commonplace. Part of the investment already goes in this direction, said Moretto. Currently, there are only individual projects with customers, but also future standard solutions must be developed in partnership. An implementation of Industry 4.0 is only possible in close cooperation with the customer .
