From expanding spaces to obtaining new certifications. The year that is about to conclude has been full of challenges but also of achieved goals
2023 was an unusual year for Sacchetto S.p.A., marked by significant progress and important achievements. We continue to pursue excellence and innovation in every aspect of our work, with passion and dedication despite recent market instabilities.
Here are some of the most significant milestones we have achieved in the last two years.
New facilities and a renewed headquarters
We have fully embraced Industry 4.0 incentives to improve the automation, efficiency and capacity of our production processes through the integration of innovative technologies and digitalisation: initiatives that have made us more competitive and efficient.
Considering the growth of the production branch and the demand of thermal and electrical energy, a plan to develop infrastructure has been undertaken, which includes the enhancement of the Electric and Gas networks. This strengthening required the activation of a new SNAM delivery point for natural gas through a first-class pipeline.
This development plan also included the inauguration of a new CHP Turbogas plant that can increase the plant’s self-production of electrical and thermal energy.
At the same time, the vaporised LPG plant was launched: an anti-crisis plan that is necessary to ensure the continuity of production at Sacchetto SpA in case of an energy crisis, as an alternative to natural gas.
Steam production capacity was also increased with three new backup boilers, and service air capacity was expanded with the installation of a central air plant.
The start-up of the new Ring Dryer plant and new equipment in the wet-process department allowed not only an increase in the production of wheat gluten, but also of the entire wheat product range. By-product production has also been increased.
Sustainability and more comfortable workspaces
The corporate entrance has been renovated not only to welcome our employees and visitors in a modern and hospitable environment, but also to increase incoming and outgoing freight traffic through logistics automation and strengthening reception infrastructures capable of handling multiple vehicles simultaneously.
We have also taken an important step towards environmental sustainability with the installation of a new system for water recovery and reduction of water consumption: an improvement that has allowed us to reduce our environmental impact, contributing to a more responsible use of the resources.
Moreover, we have modernised our offices: our commitment to the well-being of our employees has been reflected in the expansion of the space to provide an increasingly comfortable and functional working environment.
A growing team
The entire Sacchetto team has grown in line with the other innovations and expansions: in the last two years, the number of Sacchetto employees has increased by more than 20 per cent!
We are thrilled to have welcomed new talent to our team this year: an expansion that allows us to take on new challenges and continue to improve our processes and consequently products and services.
But that’s not all: our website has been completely redesigned to offer customers a more convenient and intuitive experience. It is now easier than ever to find information about our products and services online, thanks to the customer portal.
New certifications and company policies
Quality, safety, personal protection and honesty have always been some of the cornerstones around which we have developed our business and our relationship with customers, collaborators and employees.
To reaffirm this commitment, we keep renewing and integrating our Quality Certifications: in 2023, for example, we obtained ISO27001 and AEO (Authorised Economic Operator), which demonstrate our will to excel, without making compromises with our values.
Finally, we have warmly welcomed the new legislation on ‘whistleblowing‘, which protects anonymous reports of wrongdoing through the creation of a special protected channel on our website, in full compliance with the new regulations. Transparency and ethics, after all, are core values for us.
2023 was therefore a year full of new things, but we have not stopped looking towards the future: we continue to set new goals, to innovate and to improve all aspects of our company, maintaining our commitments to sustainability, ethics and quality. We are excited about what the future holds and look forward to sharing this extraordinary growth path with our customers, employees, clients and suppliers.
