The members of ASSIOT –Italian Association of Gears and Transmission Elements manufacturers, on the occasion of their Annual Assembly, have elected Assunta Galbiati as their new President, designating her to guide the Association for the next two years. Assunta Galbiati has been a member of the ASSIOT Management Board since 2012 and is the owner of the company Galbiati Group, specialized in the supply of large scale mechanical works on behalf of third parties, the construction of special gear motors for the steel industry, lamination systems, power transmissions, the cement industry, rubber industry, planetary gears for TBM rotating heads, etc.
Under the aegis of collaboration and innovation, Assunta Galbiati affirmed her intention to continue the pathway started by Tommaso Carraro, while also creating a new one that is stronger and more wide-ranging, an important representation of Transmission and Control of Movement and Power: “My primary commitment is marked by continuity, and I intend to conclude the work of my predecessor for the constitution of a new representative association for the entire sector,” commented Assunta Galbiati.
The objective of the merger project with ASSOFLUID, which will become official over the next few months, is one of the first steps towards this goal. The power transmissions sector is a world characterized by “points of excellence”. Assunta Galbiati aims to overcome individualism and competition among companies, developing the right kind of skills, to instill exchange among association members to help maintain their position as global leaders and to be ready for what the future holds.
“My own Gruppo Galbiati is a good example. We Italians have an innate capacity for understanding problems, satisfying the needs of our clientele and developing industrialized solutions that represent absolute excellence around the world. But this capacity should be built upon further; we ourselves have to believe in it, so that our clients can also recognize it, also from an economic standpoint,” concluded Assunta Galbiati.
