New Managing Director for Engel Italia
With the beginning of the new year, Engel Italia, Vimercate, is initiating the generational change in management. As of January 1, 2018, Dr. Matteo Terragni is taking over the management of the sales and service subsidiary of the Austria-based injection molding machine builder. So as to hand over the business to his successor in an orderly fashion, the previous Managing Director, Maurizio Passalacqua, will remain in the board of management as advisor for some time.
"We are very happy at being able to organize the change in management with a long-term view, thus ensuring a high degree of continuity for our customers", emphasizes Dr. Christoph Steger, CSO of the Engel Group. Matteo Terragni previously held leadership positions with international responsibility in the raw materials and the automotive supply industries, as well as in tool manufacturing. He studied chemistry at the University of Milan.
In 1990, Maurizio Passalacqua took over the management of the just previously established subsidiary, which at first was based in Cavenago Brianza, north-east of Milan. The move into neighbouring Vimercate provided ENGEL with more space and allowed it to build its own training facility, including a large technology centre. Seminars and industry conferences are being held there on a regular basis. Today, Engel Italia has more than 30 employees and is supporting in excess of 1,000 active customers.
