EXPANSION OF THE PLANT
In 2019, one hundred years after its foundation, Maddalena S.p.A. completed an expansion of the production building, becoming the site with the largest production capacity in Europe under one single roof. The numbers speak for themselves: A production area that has reached 15,000 m2, new industry 4.0 automated production lines, and a 40% increase in production capacity.
New executive office spaces have also been created, with their interior design developed and curated by architect Alessandro Zuccolo. It was a project informed by generating synergy between industry and local territory, finding a balance between indoors and outdoors, and achieving comfortable workspaces.
The expansion was designed to be eco-sustainable. The plant building is classified as achieving energy class A4, it is roofed using ONDAL insulating panels and it features a 156 Kwh photovoltaic system. All the energy generated by the photovoltaic system is used by the Maddalena S.p.A. plant, and covers about 20% to the company’s total energy needs.
Moreover, as an incentive towards sustainable mobility, charging stations for electric cars have been installed in the outdoor parking lot of the new office area.
