SACMI headquarters, via Selice Provinciale 17/A, Imola. Here, in the heart of the manufacturing area, on the third floor of building W57, located between the workshop and the goods unloading area, stands the new SACMI Academy: a 400 m2 facility in which €2 million have been invested.
Functional, flexible spaces designed to deliver collaborative training, drive growth and, above all, spark an exchange of ideas and expertise.
The blue-orange-green color scheme has a refreshing ‘open air’ feel, with saturated colors and natural wood providing an environment conducive to learning.
Stimulating, sustainable, collaborative: just as innovation should be.
“We conceived the Academy not just as a physical space where we can train our people, but as an environment that disseminates, above all, culture and values”, explains Paolo Mongardi, president of SACMI.
Which values? Honesty, ethics, courage in the face of future challenges yet also the ability to draw on experience and pass the resulting knowledge on to the next generation.
“Here at SACMI, we have at least five generations working together. Innovation isn’t just about embracing the future. It is, primarily, the ability to connect different experiences so that the company left to those who come after us is an even better one”, underlines Paolo Mongardi.
Training is the lifeblood that feeds the organization’s growth: with the Academy, SACMI extends such training to customers, the other companies in the SACMI network in Italy and worldwide, to universities and to schools.
Its first fully operational year saw an increase in the hours dedicated to routine training, with specific programs being developed to ‘train the trainers’.
