We are proud to announce the recent appointment of Dr. Ing. Deniz Sari to the newly created position of Gear Technology Manager for Samputensili and its joint-venture Star SU. A talented leader and industry expert, Deniz brings significant experience, knowledge and passion for gears to the business.

Born in Aachen, Germany, the 31-year-old holds a Diploma Degree and a Doctoral Degree in Mechanical Engineering from the RWTH Aachen University. After his study, he has worked first as a researcher, then as the Leader of the Gear Manufacturing Group of the WZL of RWTH Aachen University.

In his new role of Gear Technology Manager, Deniz will analyze all best practices coming from Samputensili and Star SU manufacturing plants around the world, combine them and optimize all production processes from design to shipping, not only from a technical, but also from an organizational point of view. In this sense, he will be responsible for supporting the international sales structure by developing solutions, systems and synergies across the company, and helping to establish seamless consumer experiences worldwide.

“As our organization continues to expand and evolve worldwide, talented professionals like Deniz help us grow and strengthen our position on the market,” said Teodoro Ceglia, General Manager of Samputensili Cutting Tools. “In particular, Deniz’s extensive experience with production processes, technological solutions and industry experts will make our training programs stronger and more valuable for our customers who attend.”

“Aachen University and the WZL represents state-of-the-art education and process development in gear manufacturing technology. We are very pleased to have Deniz Sari become part of our global gear technology team to help us develop gear manufacturing technology for the next generation,” said David Goodfellow, President of Star SU LLC.

“I am excited to join the company in a position where I can share my knowledge and skills,” said Deniz. “After working for the WZL of RWTH Aachen University, I look forward to putting my experience to work and implementing best-in-class systems across the company, including a strategic focus on the innovation of gear cutting tools, which will help customers grow their profits and efficiency.”

After an extensive training of several months in Italy at Samputensili, Deniz will move to headquarters of Star SU, located in Hoffman Estates, Chicago, IL. “I am enthusiastic of the opportunity to connect people all around the world through ideas and technology.”

SAMP celebrates 80th years!


This year SAMP celebrates its 80th anniversary.
When the company began in 1936, the original 15 employees in our first building – a small factory in zola Predosa, near Bologna (Italy) – could not have foreseen that 80 years later, their tiny little business would be a global company operating across 5 continents.

We would like to express our gratitude to the thousands of machine operators, service technicians, engineers, employees and managers that have served our company with loyalty and commitment over these 80 years. As we continue to build a stronger company thanks to the new acquisitions and partnerships worldwide, we fully recognize that our people are the foundations of our long and fruitful success story.

We know, it took a little while, but finally we are on Instagram! Come and join us on Instagram for beautiful photos, unique behind-the-scenes pictures and more.

Instagram is our new way of making you aware about our work and trying to give you different points of view on engineering in general.

In the SAMP group Instagram account you will also be able also to admire art photos from the SAMP Award of the previous years. The SAMP Award has been organized in collaboration with “Accademia di Belle Arti” of Bologna. It ran for 3 editions (2006-2008-2012), and for each of them the students of the prestigious art academy were challenged to create their best artworks on a specific topic. The first edition was about gears, the second one on wire and cable and the last edition students had to design a project to decorate a white wall of the new SAMP’s plant in Bentivoglio.

So if you like photography, engineering and art in general do not hesitate to follow us. Do not be passive, use Instagram to communicate with us, sharing your engineering art or suggestion. How to do it? Easy, use #SAMPGroup or #beyondprecision ! We will be happy to share your artworks and take suggestions.
