New organizational structure

samputensili news

We are excited to announce a significant milestone in our company’s almost 80-year history.

Starting from January 1, 2016, our Group will have a new organizational structure featuring four market-leading companies, which will operate independently in their relevant sectors:

  • Samputensili Machine Tools S.r.l. (Machine Tools for Gears, Shafts, Worms and Rotors);
  • Samputensili Cutting Tools S.r.l. (Gear Cutting Tools);
  • Sampsistemi S.r.l. (Wire and Cable Manufacturing Machines);
  • Sampingranaggi S.r.l. (Gears and Gearboxes)

All companies will be 100% owned by the holding SAMP S.p.A., a company of the Maccaferri Industrial Group, and their headquarters will remain in Bentivoglio, Bologna (Italy). You will continue to rely upon the same trusted and well-known management team, who will now count on enhanced resources. There will be no disruptions in any of our business or operations, therefore resulting in a seamless transition.

One of the main objectives of this new set-up is to become more incisive in the relevant sectors, while sharpening our focus on the specific market requirements of each individual company. Furthermore, each enterprise will benefit from enhanced independence, stronger financial resources and flexibility to adapt quickly to market and customer dynamics.

We are fully convinced that this step will allow each company to become stronger and better positioned strategically, while delivering important advantages to our customers, who will benefit from a lean organizational structure, faster response times and in general a more focused approach on addressing their needs.

Gear dry grinding is not a dream anymore!

samputensili machine tools

In the last years we have seen efforts to make sustainable the whole gear production. However, the final hard gear finishing phase of the process was the only part in which the cooling oil was used.

Today, we are glad to announce that what has been thought impossible is now possible with the new revolutionary state of the art machine: SG 160 SKYGRIND developed by Samputensili which turns green the whole process.

New Sales Director

Rabe Holger

Samputensili is pleased to announce the appointment of Holger Rabe as its new Sales Director for Gear Cutting Tools supporting customers and partners worldwide.

Mr. Rabe has matured longstanding experience in the cutting tool industry, including 8 years in sales and business management roles for the Sandvik Group – most recently as General Manager of a Sandvik Brand and, erstwhile, as General Manager of a Business Unit in Germany and Director Brand Management and Strategy. Prior to this, he worked in the product management of well-known carbide industries such as Kennametal.

Mr. Rabe attended the RWTH Aachen University and holds a Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering.

“As we are experiencing remarkable growth in Europe, we needed to bring on additional resources,” said Lapo Vivarelli Colonna, General Manager of the SAMP Group. “Mr. Rabe is the perfect candidate for the position as he’s extremely focused, committed and brings an exemplary track record of success in sales and business management. He will be a tremendous asset to our sales team.”

“Samputensili is a global brand with first-quality products and a very long tradition,” commented Mr. Rabe. “My main priority will be to focus on those markets, mainly in Europe, where it is still less known in order to ensure it gets the importance and value it deserves. It is, of course, a very challenging goal in a niche market like the gear cutting tool industry, but I am very much looking forward to it.”

He then went on to add: “I am delighted of this opportunity to work in close co-operation with international staff to realize our aggressive growth plans for the European market. I have received a very warm welcome by all of my colleagues and it will be my pleasure to lead a dynamic environment of young, friendly and open-minded sales people.”
