At the beginning of March the southern Germany company from Rietheim-Weilheim strengthened its position in the Italian market with the establishment of its own subsidiary company WERMA Italia S.r.l. based in Piacenza which will carry out all sales activities in the Italian market. Nicola Savio is the manager of the newest WERMA subsidiary and is looking forward to the new challenge: “WERMA is already an established brand in Italy and represents quality, innovation and user-friendly products. I am especially pleased to help increase the awareness of the brand and to present the fantastic products to our customers here.” The qualified electrical engineer has a long and diverse track record in many different industry sectors including the machine tool industry, automotive, electronics and automation.

The establishment of the newest subsidiary will enable WERMA to consolidate its continued growth in the Italian region. WERMA CEO Matthias Marquardt comments: “the Italian market has developed very positively and is one of the key machine tool markets. With the creation of our own subsidiary we are laying down a pre-requisite for continued growth. The region around Milan was selected as the location for the company because of the presence here of many important companies from the machine tool and automotive industries.” He continues: “thanks to this investment we will be able to build on the reliable and efficient sales and technical advisory service we offer to customers both old and new.”

On the 22nd – 24th May 2018 WERMA Italia S.r.l. will be exhibiting at the SPS IPC Drives show in Parma with its comprehensive range of innovative products.
