Francesca Maioli, Sales Manager, what does the company do?
Alutec was founded 26 years ago as a manufacturer of aluminium profiles, and over the years it has specialised not only in the processing of aluminium with more than 80 types of profiles in the catalogue (proprietary dies) and related accessories, but also in the design and implementation of systems for manual and automatic transport. For this purpose, it set up a Business Unit dedicated to the transport of products both in the pre and post production phases, and to the development of custom solutions for industrial automation, starting from the company’s core product: the aluminium profile.
What is your top product?
Alutec leitmotiv, that has proved to be a winner over the years, is: “Ideas in motion”. Starting from this, it is clear that we focus greatly on solutions for the handling of products in pre and post production. The technical department consists of a team of qualified people who develop a project for each individual customer, transforming a theoretical need into a cutting-edge solution. The modularity solutions offered allows us to satisfy the most diverse needs, from simple handling lines to more complicated solutions, even in environments that are difficult to reach by the normal operator.
When and why did Alutec start collaborating with ISB?
It is a 20-year collaboration that began as a personal relationship of trust on both sides.
Over time, the market demands for the production of more and more innovative machines and systems have increased, which require specialised operators who are able to support us in choosing the right product to create our systems. Hence, an ever-growing collaboration with solid foundations and mutual esteem.
What are the advantages of this collaboration with ISB?
Every collaboration must be based on a quality product, a real time response and a precise and fast service. ISB has all these characteristics, which are also part of our business principles, so in addition to the relationship of personal trust, ISB is also the ideal partner because it can support us in our daily commitment to provide efficient and safe solutions. Last but not least, consolidated business relationships enable us to be competitive on the market.
What are your plans for the future?
Alutec is well known nationwide, but for some years now it has also embarked upon a path to spread the Alutec brand on the international market. This has led to a significant tangible increase in sales.
We actively participate in the major trade fairs, both in Italy and abroad, receiving good feedback and increasing requests for both aluminium profiles and finished solutions. We already have several distribution points operating not only in Europe, and we hope to enter into other markets that we currently supply marginally, but that can be strategic for our products.
