Our main areas of activity remain Europe although we work very well in USA, South America and we are developing market in India but more generally Far east E.E: What’s the news about new products? C.S: In 2021 we developed a new battery straightener up to 32 mm suitable for drawing mill, fasteners makers etc… to meet the need to straighten wire with a larger diameter (32mm). We also developed 2 models of pointing machines up to 16 mm and up to 35 mm. To conclude we made an agreement with Sjogren Industries (USA) to sell wire pullers. I also like to remember our historic cooperation with PWT (NZ) for the sale in Europe of the machine to regenerate stearate. E.E: What are the ranges of products?
