This morning, the Italian President, Giorgio Napolitano, awarded Maurizio Marchesini with the title of  “Cavaliere del Lavoro” during a ceremony at the Quirinal Palace. The CEO of the Marchesini Group, who has also been Chairman-in-office of the Confederation of Italian Manufacturing and Service Companies of Emilia Romagna for a year, received this award from Giorgio Napolitano for his contributions toward the social, occupational and technologic development of the ‘Made in Italy’ mark across the world.
This important award, which was conferred to Maurizio Marchesini, and another 24 businessmen, who have distinguished themselves in different fields of economy, represents the crowning achievement of a successful industrial career, totally dedicated to the family-run business. “It was a true honour for me to receive the title of “Cavaliere del Lavoro” personally from Giorgio Napolitano” Maurizio Marchesini said. “This award is not just mine alone but it also belongs to our Italian and foreign colleagues: it is thanks to these people too that we have become a successful brand, in both our homeland, where we are leaders in the manufacturing industry, and abroad, being our main destination market”.
Over the years, Maurizio Marchesini has implemented an innovative company policy of acquisitions, joint-ventures and strategic international partnerships for the distribution network, making the Marchesini Group the key player in the so-called Packaging Valley of Emilia Romagna, with a consolidated turnover of 204 million Euro in 2012. In the last 12 years, employees have increased by 160%, which is a reverse trend compared with the Italian market; today the enterprise employs more than 1200 people all over the world.
