Shibaura Machine Japan official visit to Italy

Shibaura Machine Japan official visit to Italy

In the past few days, Franco Filippi, CEO and Chairman of EPF and Moreno Carvani, EPF Managing Director, had the pleasure of welcoming at our office in Casei Gerola Mr. Iimura, Chairman of Shibaura Machine Japan, and Mr. Hasegawa, executive officer, on official visit, accompanied by a delegation of Shibaura Machine Europe composed by Mr. Mukaeda, and Mr. Takamura, Sales Manager Europe and General Manager of the European division respectively.

It was a very important meeting, in which we took stock of the situation and discussed the results achieved from 2013 to date. We then defined the next developments and investments in the short and medium term.

Shibaura Machine confirms the will to continue to invest in Europe and Italy in order to increase sales and achieve very positive results such as those obtained in the markets outside Japan, e.g. USA, India and China.

With the occasion, EPF, together with the Japanese delegation, met some of its Italian Customers, discussing with them the benefits of full-electric molding machines to their factories in recent years. A special thanks to SPAL and BORLA for hosting us and for the fruitful collaboration of these years.
