Flexitallic increases support for Southern European industry with launch of manufacturing facility in Italy

The Flexitallic Group has strengthened its presence in the European market with the introduction of a new gasket manufacturing and distribution centre in Italy.
Flexitallic Italy provides a dedicated production facility to serve the entire Southern European market and has been launched to meet the growing demand for the company’s innovative gasket solutions across a number of key industries including oil & gas, power generation and chemical production.
As a result of establishing this facility, Flexitallic is able to increase the level of service provided to customers in the region through enhanced production turnaround and extensive stockholding, which result in improved delivery times.
Based in 1400 square metre premises in Ticengo, the facility has extensive distribution capabilities to support the delivery of Flexitallic’s portfolio of industrial sealing products, which include the innovative Change™ gasket and sealing materials such as Sigma® and Thermiculite®.
The introduction of the operation in Italy is part of Flexitallic’s global development programmes, which has included the group building geographic presences across strategically important regions across the world including Belgium and Germany to serve northern and central Europe, and the Middle East.  Flexitallic is also active in the Asia market with an established operation in China and a recently opened facility in Thailand.
Philippe Pottier, Managing Director, said: “Italy and the Southern European region is an established industrial market where Flexitallic has maintained a presence for many years.  Increased demand for our sealing solutions, together with our strategic growth programme to enhance our ability to serve customers with fast and effective operations has facilitated our move to establish this new facility.
“Drawing on our global expertise and innovative approach to solving static sealing challenges across multiple industries, we have built a talented and experienced team to support customers from our new base in Italy, utilising the latest production methods and technology to deliver the best quality and most effective gasket solutions on the market.”
