ABK Group, one of the major designers and manufacturers of complete machines and specialised equipment for the paper and board industry with headquarters in France, has announced the set up of a new company, ABK Italia S.p.A. (former Over Meccanica S.p.A.), with production activities started as of August 8th, 2011, and plant facilities based in Verona, Italy.
Such new and important investment confirms the aim of ABK Group to strengthen its presence worldwide with the capability to offer to its customers even more qualified and high technology equipment especially to the tissue market in addition to already mastered equipment that ABK offers to the paper and board producers.
The highly qualified personnel of ex-Over Meccanica S.p.A. now employed by ABK Italia S.p.A. is a key of success as it brings a wealth of knowledge and longstanding experience that will efficiently sustain the growth of the company worldwide.
ABK Italia S.p.A. also immediately benefits not only from streamlined and highly automated machining facilities, but also from a most modern and perfectly equipped foundry which renders the company entirely independent from third parties for the casting of all parts especially drying cylinders and big size Yankees.
Holding all these aces, ABK Group will be in a position to manufacture machines and equipment for the production of all grades of paper, from tissue and writing-printing paper to newsprint and packaging grades as well as fine paper and specialty papers, making use of great workshop capacity and an unquestionable technical know-how reinforced by the technology and the experience developed over 50 years of history by Over Meccanica.
