WAMGROUP has inaugurated its new Technology Centre at the company’s headquarters in Ponte Motta di Cavezzo, Modena, Italy. The opening comes as the company celebrates the 50th anniversary of its founding.

The inauguration was attended by the president of the Emilia-Romagna Region, Stefano Bonaccini, as well as the mayors of Modena and the municipalities of the Modenese lowlands, and the Bishop of Carpi. An technical symposium followed the ribbon-cutting, covering current research collaborations between WAMGROUP and various academic partners.

“The Technology Centre is a structure aimed at researching and developing new industrial products,” WAMGROUP said in statement. “Its objective is the study and analysis of bulk solids and those operating in the field of environmental technologies. Research focuses on dust filtration, solids-liquid separation in animal husbandry and various industries, on wastewater treatment and hydropower.”

In addition to a permanent exhibition of WAMGROUP’s products, the centre includes a research laboratory and a training centre.

“The WAMGROUP Technology Centre is therefore the cornerstone of an industrial strategy aimed at increasing skills, driving the professional and occupational growth of both the company and the territory on which WAMGROUP bases its roots,” the company concluded.
