COSTRUZIONI MECCANICHE PERSICO, Top-of-the-range fleshing machine
2018 ended on a positive note, with excellent results, and 2019 kicked off in the same way, featuring orders sent from new countries as well. This is the positive feedback collected by Costruzioni Meccaniche Persico, the company based in San Giovanni Lupatoto (Verona province), established in 1963 by Ezechiele Persico, whose core business lies in the manufacturing of through-feed fleshing machines. And one of these “flagship models” was showcased at the latest edition of the Tanning Tech exhibition.
“Due to space-related reasons, we showcased the smallest one in the “SP” range,” explained Nicola Albertini, head of the accounting department, during the three-day fair. “Yet, it perfectly embodies the prototype of the top-quality, featuring a pneumatic fleshing tool. Just like the other models in the range, it is equipped with a brand-new, upgraded hydraulic power unit and it provides the electronic control of conveying speed, succeeding in ensuring top-notch quality standards as well as a higher productivity, up to 600 per hour.
The leather must be inserted in the feed opening on the machine’s upper side and it does not need to be turned around during the flashing phase, thus resulting in a marked decrease not only in terms of time schedule, but also of water consumption and overall costs. This machine has been chosen by the leading Italian tanning groups such as Mastrotto and Dani in the Vicenza’s district as well as by many companies based in Santa Croce and by several international groups including Sadesa, Jbs, Tyson, National Beef etc.”
Even though the fleshing machines developed by Costruzioni Meccaniche Persico are widely praised by Italian entrepreneurs, the Venetian company is still very much focused on foreign markets, starting with the Eastern countries – especially China and India, but also Taiwan, Thailand and Indonesia – and with Latin American nations, more specifically Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay and Paraguay. “The export share is superior to 90%,” explained Albertini, “and, in the last few months, we have received some orders from Australia and two from New Zealand: as a matter of fact, Oceania is a new market to be explored, that can guarantee interesting future prospects. We will keep investing in research and in the technological upgrading of the fleshing machines, since there is a growing demand for higher quality in this crucial phase of the tanning process.” www.cmpersico.com
