Seventy million euros invested in the last ten years. Customers in Sweden, Germany, the United States, Spain, England, and new markets on the horizon. Two production sites in Italy and China, three research and development laboratories in Italy, China, and Germany, a new branch opened in the United States in early April of this year, and 14 production lines. The latest one, Line 11, inaugurated in Gorizia a few days ago, totals around 300 employees.
These are just some of the impressive figures of Coveme, the San Lazzaro di Savena-based company that is a global leader in surface treatment and polyester film conversion.
Flexibility, adaptability, and growth have been the company’s hallmarks since 1965. It’s a company that has never stopped, even during the Covid period, using it as an opportunity to plan new investments.
The strategic brain, commercial and financial, of Coveme has always been in San Lazzaro di Savena, where it was founded nearly 60 years ago, thanks to the tenacity of Pier Luigi Miciano, current president and owner, a “visionary” man who is forward-thinking and as “flexible” as his products. From a trading company of insulating materials for the electromechanical industry, Coveme has grown and adapted to the changes in the world around it, becoming a reference point for polyester film processing.
“Today, to stay on the market and remain competitive, you must invest,” explains Amedeo Maccolini, CEO of the company. “We need to employ resources in research and the development of innovative, high-quality, efficient, and sustainable products while expanding our commercial network, seeking new markets. That’s why we opened our new branch in the United States.”
In this context, Line 11 was inaugurated at the Gorizia plant, which performs various treatments on polyester film to enable customers to use it for subsequent processing in various industries, from screen printing to fashion, automotive to interior design and printed electronics. Moreover, the film can be used in the biomedical field for in vitro diagnostic devices (IVD) and strip tests, or, with functional and aesthetic coatings, can be employed in the production of panels for furniture, kitchens, wardrobes, and other furnishings.
It can be said that there is a little bit of Coveme in everyone’s home and around the world.
