The machinery industry


In this moment we are focusing all our activities in technology for sustainability, innovation of processes or innovation of products. The market asks and we try to give the right reply


The biggest challenge


The biggest challenge that we have is to try to understand exactly about the future and about what our customers are looking for. This is not easy because the market is very fast and sometimes, we need time just to understand the needs. And also, to be able to give the right reply to the customer enquiries.


Sustainability


I think there are different approaches to be entrepreneurs. The entrepreneurs have to be sustainable. The entrepreneurs have to develop something, not only for a good product but to the system which interfaces. Good entrepreneurs have to take care about the work care and we usually do this. But also care about the supplier and also the real conditions of the people who live around the company. The market asks us this. And I think that everybody has children, or nephews, and I think that it is important to take care of our world. Either we do something, or we threw away all our planet. We have to develop something. And be careful; ensuring this is not only a fashion and I’m sure that for us is not only a Fashion


Trees in Madagascar


Our project is the tree. We care about CO2 but we cannot be zero (neutral). So, we decided to plant trees in Madagascar. 500 trees. Why 500? We wanted to ensure that all of our members have a tree planted in their name. Assomac believes in sustainability. So, Assomac did something concrete in sustainability.
