New organizational structure

Sampingranaggi SAMP

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:

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

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.

Starting from January 1, 2016, you will receive shipping documents, invoices, order confirmations and all business correspondence from the company stated below:

  • Sampingranaggi S.r.l. Via Saliceto, 15 40010 Bentivoglio (BO) Italy VAT ID No.: IT03503871208

Also, all orders, requests for quotations and business correspondence should be sent to the same above-mentioned company.

Our new bank details will be indicated in the invoices issued after January 1, 2016. All other contact data (telephone, fax, mobile numbers and e-mail addresses) remain unchanged.

Our offices are at your disposal for any further information you may require. Please do not hesitate to contact us in case of questions.

SAMP enhancement

Sampingranaggi SAMP

SAMP announces the enhancement of its high-quality gear manufacturing capacity. SAMP announces the enhancement of its high-quality gear manufacturing capacity by putting into operation its new plant in Shanghai, which produces high-quality cylindrical spur and helical gears for robotics, railroad locomotion and for precision gear sets up to an outside diameter of 400 mm and up to module 8. The new Chinese subsidiary has a capacity of 150,000 cylindrical gears per year and relies on the same equipment and technology in use in the production plant in Bentivoglio, Italy. Clients can therefore ask for their products to be delivered from both manufacturing sites, being assured that quality will be exactly the same.

The main objective of the new plant in Shanghai is to provide support to Asian clients, avoiding time-consuming shipments from Europe while offering high-precision gear manufacturing solutions and helping them achieve long lasting success. High product quality standards are achieved through technical expertise, professionalism and great teamwork. Every person in the new plant, including all managers and operators, have been trained by the parent company in Bentivoglio. Moreover, all collaborators are required to report to the Italian management.

Inaugurated in 2012, the new production plant has a total surface of approximately 4,000 square meters and is conveniently located next to the other two divisions, Samputensili and Sampsistemi, in the Shanghai district of Jiading – one of the most important economic, financial, commercial and telecommunication hubs of the People’s Republic of China.

On top of this, the manufacturing plant in Bentivoglio has been upgraded with state-of-the-art robotic cells for ID and OD grinding and for precise chamfering and deburring. At the same time, the production capacity for bevel gears has been doubled. This way the Sampingranaggi total production capacity in Italy has been enhanced by over 30%.
