“Bologna is the operating capital of Philip Morris, this is where our most important moment was born, that is the transformation from traditional products to innovative products, we were here for a very important inauguration not later than October, everything is a puzzle that is made up: a large factory, large investments in machinery and a territory of small and medium-sized enterprises that are connected not only economically but also personally to the company “. This was stated by Marco Hannappel, president and CEO of Philip Morris Italia, speaking at the inauguration of the Philip Morris Institute for Manufacturing Competences (IMC), the new Philip Morris center for higher education and the development of skills related to Industry 4.0 , inaugurated today in Crespellano (Bo). “There are still many projects for Bologna that go towards a possible further development of industrialization”, recalled Hannappel who added: “There are projects that link agriculture to industry, in fact everything comes from an agricultural product with over 20 thousand people who work for us through the agreement with Coldiretti, and we want this supply chain to be not just a supply chain of people but also of investments. For this we need a medium-term vision of 3-5 years on the part of Italy and a very strong protection of the made in Italy and of the Italian supply chains “, he concluded.
