CMT Sales Expand Since Joining GEA

CMT Sales Expand Since Joining GEA

CMT S.p.A. in Peveragno, Italy, a supplier of systems for the production of ‘pasta-filata’ cheeses, has increased its sales significantly since becoming part of GEA in the middle of last year. The increase is as a result of synergies created as part of GEA and cooperation with other members that supply related technologies.

The new GEA company was established in Italy in the 1970s and successfully gained itself an excellent reputation for the mechanisation of production processes for fresh mozzarella, pizza cheese, provolone, scamorza, kashkaval, etc. The company has an installed base of over 3,500 systems, predominantly in Europe and the Americas, each producing between two and ten tons per hour.  CMT also supplies small-scale testing equipment.

The company became part of GEA on 22 June, 2015.  Since then it has benefited from the experience and know-how available within the group and from the excellent relationship GEA has with its existing customers worldwide. Paolo Tomatis is sales director in Peveragno.  He said that the change has been rousing since his company became part of GEA. “We have been able to invest in new technology, expand our research and development program, and employ new talent that will help us to continue driving our company forward well into the future,” he said. “Our constant increase in sales since last June also demonstrates the difference GEA has made for us in such a short time.”

GEALogoGEA customers have been benefiting too. Having access to the entire scope of supply from GEA has enabled CMT to expand its service offering to include equipment for the whole production process of ‘pasta-filata’ cheese, right from milk reception through to the packed mozzarella ready to be sold on the market. “We can now offer complete production lines that are tailor-made for our customers,” explained Dr. Tomatis. “The range of equipment and the depth of knowledge that is available within GEA has completely transformed our business.”

This expanded range of equipment includes stretching and molding machines, and hardening and brining vats from CMT itself now enhanced by GEA technologies such as mixing and blending, membrane filtration, liquid handling systems and technology for the manufacture of hard and semi-hard Dutch style cheeses thereby offering a full scope of supply to manufacturers throughout the dairy sector.

Much has changed for CMT since last June. One thing that has not changed, however, is the loyalty and dedication of the employees at Peveragno.  Although the company now has a global offering, it has not let go of its roots as a specialist supplier that cares about its customers and greatly values the long-term relationships it has enjoyed over so many years. Becoming part of GEA has been a good news story for the company, its employees and its customers – old and new.
