Important recognition for Camozzi Group. The company from Brescia, one of the leaders in Italy in the field of industrial automation and robot design and manufacture, has been awarded the “Italian Mechatronics Award 2020“, assigned every year by Unindustria Reggio Emilia. The event’s Scientific Committee recognised the innovative action of the Brescia-based company in rapidly growing and developing sectors, such as mechatronics and industrial automation.
Camozzi Group wins the “Italian Mechatronics Award 2020”: the motivations
The award, presented virtually at the entrepreneurs’ meeting “2021: from reaction to action”, has a high symbolic value, but not only. The scientific committee is chaired by Fabio Storchi, President of Unindustria Reggio Emilia, and composed of: Alberto Rocchi, President of Club Meccatronica, Luca De Biase, Editor-in-Chief of Nòva – Il Sole 24 Ore, Cesare Fantuzzi, Director DISMI-Department of Engineering Sciences and Methods University of Modena and Reggio Emilia, Enzo Rullani, Professor Venice International University and Auro Palomba, President of Community Group, as secretary.
In recent years, the Brescia-based company has “succeeded in transforming itself from a leading company in the Industrial Automation components sector to a company capable of offering innovative solutions at 360 degrees in different sectors by exploiting the enabling technologies of Industry 4.0, new business models, new skills and collaborations with companies and research centres,” reads the jury’s motivations.
A real evolution, in short, that has allowed the Camozzi Group to become an example for the entire mechatronics sector in Italy (and beyond). “Its ‘experimentation with the new’,” reads the reasons for the award, “has led the company to be one of the protagonists of the ‘new mechatronics’, becoming an example to be pointed out to other companies in the Italian mechatronics and related sectors. For this reason, its innovations are significant for many of the new business models emerging from the digital revolution and the sudden changes that have emerged in recent times”.
Italian Mechatronics Award, other award-winning companies
The Camozzi group was not the only one to receive an award during the event (held by videoconference). The Scientific Committee of the Prize awarded other prizes to various companies on the Italian production scene. Roboze of Bari, for example, won the award for most innovative startup for its 3D printing solutions for the production of just-in-time super polymers.
The jury also awarded recognition to the other finalists: ESA (Bibbiano, Reggio Emilia) integrated systems for environmental protection; Fluid-o-Tech (Corsico, Milan; positive displacement pumps and fluid management systems); PFM (Torrebelvicino, Vicenza; packaging machinery); Siare Engineering (Valsamoggia, Bologna; electromedical equipment for anaesthesia and resuscitation).
