Mr. Galloni, what impressed you most during your recent visit to Italcuscinetti?
It’s a really interesting enterprise, situated only a few kilometres away from the Comet headquarters. I was certainly aware of its great potential. I was very impressed by the remarkably large storehouse, by its structure and organization whereby the products can also be stocked according to the customers’ specifications. I found the technical aspect particularly interesting: the production cycle of each and every product is constantly monitored on the basis of technical and quality specifications dictated by the company.

What do you think of the technical service?
It’s certainly not what you’d expect of a business concern, that generally just purchases and resells.
I was able to visit the technical workshop and was favourably surprised by the sophisticated equipment there, as well as the skill and expertise of the technicians, whose in-depth knowledge of both products and applications ensures that the customers receive the right solution to their problems. In a position like mine, it’s essential for Comet’s suppliers to be able to provide this sort of service/backup: here, the technical workshop is able to measure the characteristics of the products, outline the results in the Bearing Test Reports and make comparisons with other manufacturers’ products.
Which are Comet’s plans for the near future?
Collaboration, competence, flexibility and solutions are values that Comet has always sought for in its suppliers: ISB is the right partner as it possesses all these characteristics. It’s essential for a constantly developing enterprise like Comet, where market requirements are a prime concern, to choose a partner able to work with us, supply and assist us throughout all these changes.
