The Big Opening in OHIO
In June 2017, Demont awarded a new order from the company Sofidel America for the supply and prefabrication and installation of components relevant to two tissue production lines with cogeneration plant. With this agreement, the Italian Company signs a turning point, taking its first steps in the US market, and constitutes its subsidiary DE States Inc. based in Columbus, Ohio.
The work that took place from then on has been continuous and exciting and the wishes of the management to maintain a continuous collaboration between the Italian and American headquarters has been repaid. Everyone was enthusiastically involved in the project: from the prefabrication workshop, to the logistics department for overseas shipments, from the human resources effort for the mobilization of highly specialized Italian personnel to the administration of the difficulties of the new market.
There has never been a lack of willingness to make it and it is thanks to everyone’s efforts that, in June, a year after the signing of the turning contract, the first paper of the new PM1 line was produced in the Circleville site and yesterday evening the inauguration of the plant took place. For the occasion, there were a great celebration and the satisfaction of those who believed in this project from the beginning.
