Scm Group: condolences and commemoration on the passing of Adriano Celi

We received from Scm Group the following press release

Scm Group, together with all its employees and co-workers, come together to offer their condolences to the relatives of Adriano Celi who passed away, in Rimini, on Sunday 18 July at the age of 83.

As the Scm Group’s Board of Directors stated, for so many years, Adriano Celi “was a part of this company’s growth” and “he passed down his incredible professionalism and passion to us all, as well as his principles and values for which we will be for ever grateful and keep with us”.

A graduate from the University of Bologna in Industrial Chemistry, after a long career as a chemistry teacher in a number of high schools in Rimini and other Italian provinces, Celi became a benchmark to Scm Group for more forty years, holding numerous, important positions: he was Director of the Foundry in Villa Verucchio and, as a result, the one in Rimini as well. He later became head of the Purchasing department for all the Group’s companies and, in 1997, was appointed General Manager and became the first person in the history of the Scm Group to hold this position.

Even today, so many people who knew him in the company remember him with great affection and respect, not just because of his generous commitment to the growth of the Group or the humble and willing approach he had with every employee and co-worker, but also for his incredible love of culture and the technical and humanistic arts, that accompanied him in his daily life, and the importance he placed on life-long learning and the values of work ethics.

“Scm had and has a soul that captures you. It is a practical soul, one made up of people with their feet on the ground, whose aim is to grow and who love the product they manufacture. The company is an integral part of the lives of its shareholders, directors and all its employees.” This is one of Celi’s many written testimonials that he left to the company which will continue to cherish his sound principles and values.
