The entry of Keraglass into the Emmegi Group produced new impetus for the research process right from the get-go, driving innovation throughout the product range. Keraglass has been able to benefit from the high level of synergy between the various Group members to proceed with the development of new technological solutions to implement in its existing products. But the new developments in Keraglass don't end here.
By exploiting wide-ranging know-how in multiple sectors, at the last Vitrum trade show the company unveiled a new series of digital printers comprising an inkjet plotter with on-demand technology and a single-pass printer incorporating the very latest technological solutions.
This integration of skills, data and production capacity guides Keraglass customers towards the transition to Industrie 4.0. The computerisation of all processes, aimed at creating organisations that ready to face the challenges and opportunities of globalisation. Optimised resources, the utmost flexibility, direct links to market trends... in essence the "smart factory".
Against this background of merging of human resources, different competences and models, it's hardly surprising that the plan to increase the Emmegi Group's stake in Keraglass to 60% was completed more rapidly than initially envisaged.
