November 19th, Mappi once again opened its doors to high school students, who in a few years will transform from spectators into protagonists in the working world. This meeting was part of PMI Day 2021, an initiative of Confindustria (the Italian Association of Industrialists), which is now in its twelfth edition.
This year the students came from “Teodosio Rossi” Institute in Priverno. Accompanied by their teachers, they met Mappi’s staff, exploring the different phases of design and production of complex and refined machines such as Mappi tempering furnaces.
The most important theme that students will study this year is environmental sustainability, which is also a central theme of Mappi’s evolutionary path. Through the implementation of complex control systems and increasingly refined functions, Mappi has managed to considerably reduce both energy consumption and installed power, as well as heat and energy dispersion. Sustainability does not only mean guaranteeing excellent and constant quality of tempered glass, but it means avoiding waste and reworking. Mappi has long chosen to use technology and innovation to build a better and more sustainable world.
Nancy Mammaro, CEO of Mappi, closed the meeting with the young people saying, “This is one of the reasons why we constantly project ourselves into the future. Mappi is a company that has always invested in young people, innovation, in professionalism. We are happy to have participated to PMI Day 2021 and we are ready to welcome the 2022 edition as well. Our commitment in favour of young talents is constant. 365 days a year we are committed offering opportunities, developing specialist skills, cultivating the right mix between innovative capacity of the youngest and consolidated experience of those who have been with us for a long time. And the results prove that we are right.”
