As we approach the end of the year 2020, it’s time to take stock
2020 was undoubtedly a particularly difficult year due to the global pandemic that disrupted people’s lives, production activities and the economic system. However, Automa never stopped; indeed, the company continued to guarantee its customers and partners the best possible service.
We certainly suffered some small delays, but we didn’t let the events get us down; on the contrary, we tried to make the best of the negative situation generated by Covid-19. In fact, the lockdown was, paradoxically, an opportunity for us to grow. The planned activities continued at a distance, we carried on the information and networking activities taking full advantage of smart working, we got to know our customers/partners better, we met – even if only virtually – new people, and we took the opportunity to plan for the aftermath of the emergency to start again, stronger than before.
New Year’s intentions and projects
On the strength of the results we have achieved in this difficult year, we have started and planned many projects for the New Year to be shared with all our customers, partners and future ones. We are building an agenda full of events, webinars, training courses, collaboration meetings and much more. In addition, the new year will also see the inauguration of a new building at our headquarters in Ancona – an extension of the existing structure – which will house an auditorium for 100 people, over 300 m² of office space for the R&D department and logistics department, a 150 m² laboratory area (production and development laboratory, and metrology laboratory), as well as a warehouse of over 200 m² with an automated system for increasingly smart logistics.
News doesn’t end there! As we have already announced on our social channels, we have recently started work on the installation of a cathodic protection test field, which aim is to simulate the cathodic protection conditions of underground metal structures, and to allow measurements to be carried out in the field on cathodic protection systems and required by European and international standards (EN, UNI and ISO).
For 2021, we hope to grow as a team, to increase the possibilities of collaboration, but above all to be able to host you at our premises soon!
We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
The staff of Automa s.r.l.
