Laverda and AmCham, together in Milan for the first event of 2014

The After Hours Business Cocktail Evening was held yesterday at Sheraton Diana Majestic in Milan, sponsored by Laverda

Breganze, 17.01.2014.  The Managing Director of AmCham (American Chamber of Commerce in Italy), Simone Crolla, welcomed the numerous Italian and American representatives of the economy present at the occasion, stating that he was particularly pleased to kick off this year’s traditional AmCham events with a success story such as that of Laverda. 

The Breganze company became one of the members of the association after its acquisition by one of the global leaders in the field of agricultural machinery, AGCO Corporation, which took place in March 2011.

Crolla next introduced Francesco Quaranta, the CEO of Laverda and Vice President & General Manager of AGCO Harvesting.

"The strategy for success requires the ability to produce quality with a strong focus on innovation and Breganze is a good story to tell," said Quaranta. "In Laverda I not only found a company, but most importantly the know-how and passion of the people who work there.  It is true that we are faced with a difficult economic situation in Italy, but we are an important company and AGCO believes in this company. This is proven by the numerous investments that will enable us to reach new levels of excellence, further improving the productivity and quality of our products. We plan to grow and to be present in all markets".
