Alfredo Serena, CEO of MTS, what does your company do?
Since 2008, the company has been producing tomato harvesting machines. Over the last few years, MTS has successfully moved into other harvesting sectors, such as onions and peppers.
What is your top product?
In recent years, MTS has launched more than six models of harvesting machines, but the product that’s giving us the greatest satisfaction at the moment on the global market is the THR850 harvesting machine. Technologically, it’s the most advanced, and as well as having the world’s highest harvesting capacity, it’s also uniquely comfortable, thanks to the newly conceived central cabin, designed to keep out sound and vibrations. The latest generation engine has allowed us to limit waste and C02 emissions into the atmosphere.
When and why did MTS start collaborating with ISB?
A number of factors come into play when choosing a supplier. The first and most important for us is the quality of the end product. With ISB, we were in no doubt about that from the moment their bearings were installed on our machines. Another very important factor is the relationship established between the two companies: it might seem obvious, but with the ISB team we got on from day one, and this is what’s allowed us to work together so well over the last year.
What are the advantages of this collaboration with ISB?
One very important advantage is the quick service, and punctual deliveries. Thanks to its large warehouse, ISB is able to help us with large orders, even at short notice.
What projects do you have for the future?
For the future, MTS aspires to keep growing and gain a foothold in new developing Countries, where harvesting of some crops, such as tomatoes, is not yet carried out with machines.
