Episode Notes



Andrea: "It was more important to, considered that when taking over one company with 150 to 160 people, it is difficult for me, who I don't have his depth of knowledge, maybe in the technical part or in every single aspect of the business."

Andrea: "When you design the product in the right way and the process in the right way, you can produce exactly the same product using less raw material, less energy, less labor also. And so overall you can have a much more sustainable process, so a green production system, at the same time, producing big result in terms of profits."

Andrea: "We actually do have all our standardized meetings for each type of function. Since every machine becomes a kind of a one project, our job is very much close to a project management job. The only thing is that we manage over 250 projects per year, so it's quite extensive.”
