Cavagna Group opens a plant in Chile
The launch ceremony was something of an event, with the Italian MP Hon. Rocco Buttiglione, the Italian Ambassador in Santiago Dr. Marco Ricci, and the ICE Director at the Embassy in Santiago Dr. Giuseppe Manenti attending. The officials were present during the opening and then proceeded to visit the new site.
And speaking of it, the facility will produce LPG valves and regulators for various applications. Out of the unit's 23800 square metres of overall surface, 6000 square metres are the actual assembly area divided into three major sections: forging and raw material warehouse; machining, assembly, engineering and maintenance; and the main warehouse. The site also features a laboratory where new products will be developed and a showroom where Cavagna's current lineup is displayed. Over 100 people are employed at the new plant. Certain space has also been reserved to allow the site's further expansion in the future.
The inauguration of our new plant in Chile opens up significant prospects for the Cavagna Group, allowing it to expand operations in countries that are showing a strong capacity for economic and social growth. Chile itself is one of the fastest developing countries in the world, not just among South American countries. Through this significant investment, the Cavagna Group has reasserted its firm intention to aim increasingly at the South American market.
