On the company's 50th anniversary, on Friday, June 15, 2018, WAMGROUP celebrated the inauguration of the new Technological Centre at the company's headquarters in Via Archimede in Ponte Motta di Cavezzo, Modena, Italy.

Following the ribbon cutting in the presence of the president of the Emilia-Romagna Region, Stefano Bonaccini, the mayors of Modena and the municipalities of the Modenese lowlands, as well as the bishop of Carpi, Monsignor Cavina, an academic symposium was held on some current scientific topics and of particular interest for technological innovations related to environmental protection.

The Technology Centre is a structure aimed at researching and developing new industrial products. Its objective is the study and analysis of bulk solids and those operating in the field of environmental technologies. Research focuses on dust filtration, solids-liquid separation in animal husbandry and various industries, on wastewater treatment and hydropower. The centre includes a research laboratory, a training centre and a permanent exhibition. In addition to being an international point of reference in research and development of new products and related applications, it aims to become a meeting place for training young professionals from around the world.

The WAMGROUP Technology Centre is therefore the cornerstone of an industrial strategy aimed at increasing skills, driving the professional and occupational growth of both the company and the territory on which WAMGROUP bases its roots.

In his speech WAMGROUP president, Vainer Marchesini, stressed the importance of training young people to ensure the company a successful future in an increasingly globalised world.

In thanking Marchesini for his commitment in the reconstruction after the 2012 earthquake, President Bonaccini emphasized the worldwide success of the companies of the Emilia-Romagna thanks to their innovation capacity, which results in an ever-increasing competitiveness on international markets. With the new WAMGROUP Technology Centre, WAMGROUP proves to believe in research and development as the main strategy to create new jobs in the future.

In the context of the inauguration, the following day a big party dedicated to the families with more than 1,200 participants took place at the WAMGROUP headquarters.
