Intermac is acquiring Movetro and thus expanding its product range
Expanding the range of products in the sector dedicated to systems and lines for machining flat glass.
Intermac’s product range is expanding, thanks to the acquisition of Movetro and the company’s entry into a highly strategic sector, dedicated to the storage and handling of flat glass plates – all thanks to an investment that falls under the 4.0 growth and development plan which involves the entire Group. These are the goals for the acquisition of Movetro by Intermac, which is set to be completed by the end of July 2017.
Movetro, a company based in the province of Padua, has been working with the glass division of Biesse Group for a number of years, and boasts extensive expertise in this area, fundamental to cementing a place as a technological leader and to further strengthening the Intermac range of 4.0 ready solutions for the glass industry.
Presenting itself as the ideal partner for the design and construction of special fully-automated and integrated turnkey systems and production lines, Intermac will be able to offer a high-value consulting approach, providing classifiers, shuttle magazines, automatic loaders, loaders and tilters in addition to its current range, and designing dedicated management software.
For its part, Movetro can look forward to the benefits of belonging to a major industrial group such as Biesse, an advantage that will guarantee the international visibility that comes with being one of the most important players in the industrial machinery sector.
Intermac and Movetro will come together at Vitrum 2017 on Stand G30 M21 to present Thinkforward, or in other words, our ability to create digital factories that can change the way we conceive and produce things; the ability of Intermac to innovate and provide integrated solutions that are sophisticated but easy to use, allowing you to produce more, better, and at a lower cost.
