Augusta Team

Interview to VITO SAVERINO
Site Manager in the Refinery of Augusta (SR)

Vito, how long have you been working for Demont?

I started working in Demont in 2007 as a foreman in the refinery of Sannazzaro de’ Burgondi (PV).
In 2017 the Company offered me the opportunity to be Site Manager for the maintenance contract of the refinery of Trecate (NO) and then of the refinery of Augusta (SR). Being Sicilian, I seized this opportunity with pleasure and moved there also my family.
Since January 2022, Demont has established a new company Sikel Impianti which I now belong to, together with all the site staff of Augusta Refinery: an ambitious project that we face with determination and transparency.

What does your team do?

My team is in charge of the mechanical maintenance of the plants inside the refinery.

In your experience, what is the secret to make a team work well together?

Involving the whole team in the project in order to achieve the common goal.
Feeling part of a team allows to face difficulties with more strength and determination, being aware you can count on one another never feeling alone.
When I arrived at Augusta site, I found a group of determined and professional people. This made the creation of a cohesive team possible.

In your opinion, which are the values of your company?

Definitely professionalism, transparency, determination and courage in facing challenges.
These are all values that I immediately found and that make me proud to be part of this big family.

In your opinion, which advantages can the client derive from teamwork?

The organization of the team allows to work in an effective way. Having clear ideas about the activities to be carried out means assuring the health and safety of the workers and this is really appreciated by the client.

How would you describe your team in one word?
