For Matermacc, 2015 was a year of transition, marked by the acquisition by the Chinese group Foton Lovol and by quite complex market scenarios; nevertheless, the final balance can be considered satisfactory, given the increase in real turnover (between 8% and 10% on 2104) recorded by the company at year end. “In this first year of operation, we focused our attention on the transition process from a “family” model to a management one, safeguarding and in some cases enhancing professionalism and excellence - declares Massimo Zubelli, CEO - and adding new figures in the technical field.” “Collaborating with the Chinese parent company – continued Zubelli – has been particularly significant, with the development and commissioning of a no-tillage modular drill.” Although the acquisition by Foton Lovol has taken place in a difficult period for the target markets served by the company of San Vito al Tagliamento - Ukraine and Russia above all - and with a setback in the EU Agricultural Development Plans, Matermacc has nonetheless shown good resilience, even in comparison with many competitors in the industry. This resilience – notes Chairman Andrea Bedosti – has allowed the company to invest in the industrialization and development of new product ranges.
