Fabrizio Cattaneo has been named as the new Director of GIMAV, the Association for Italian manufacturers and machinery suppliers.

Dr Cattaneo replaces Laura Biason, who left the association at the end of 2019.

He will assist the Board and President Gusti in guiding the glass processing machinery manufacturers association along a pathway of international outreach, strewn with some very significant challenges and events.

Dr Cattaneo’s background includes an active role in founding Federtec – the association that grew out of the merger of ASSIOT and ASSOFLUID.

“Dr Cattaneo’s lengthy, deeply rooted experience with associations and Confindustria convinced us that he was the right person for GIMAV,” stated GIMAV President, Michele Gusti.
