BEAMIT SpA, Fornovo di Taro, Italy, has appointed Andrea Scanavini as its Group General Manager. Scanavini’s new position is expected to further strengthen and accelerate the company’s organisational, commercial and international group growth strategy.

Scanavini is a materials engineer specialising in innovative materials, and holds a Master’s degree in welding engineering. During his career, he is said to have played a significant role in the world of Additive Manufacturing, reportedly creating the first Italian centre of control services. 

In recent years he has reportedly gained experience and results in business development and SME management. He also founded a startup – PRES-X – focused on providing solutions for lead time reduction and cost-saving in advanced manufacturing supply chains. BEAMIT explained that Scanavini will also engage his technological and management skills in the company with a combined venture; BEAMIT-PRES-X.

“I’m honoured to be chosen by the BEAMIT group for this important and strategic role,” stated Scanavini. “BEAMIT Group has a great vision and loves challenges. I like them, too. I believe that the ability to overcome challenges and take goals is closely linked to the strength of the people.”

“The strength of a company lies in the people who work there,” he added. “In BEAMIT group I found very motivated people and a cohesive and very strong group. That’s why I accepted the role. That’s why we’re going to win.”

Mauro Antolotti, president of BEAMIT, commented, “I had the chance to deepen Andrea’s knowledge both as a person and as a manager and I appreciated his values, skills and determination in achieving the objectives.”

He added, “BEAMIT group offers complex services along the entire value chain and for this reason, I’m sure that Andrea will be able to do an excellent job of coordinating and managing a group that counts today two entities but we have no intention of stopping here.”
