Engel Italia has introduced Matteo Terragni as its new managing director as of the beginning of 2018.
The Austria-based machinery supplier announced 10 Jan that former managing director, Maurizio Passalacqua, will remain on the board of management as advisor for “some time”.
According to Christoph Steger, CSO of the Engel Group, the change in management was made with a view to the longer term. “With Dr. Matteo Terragni, we have gained a very experienced injection moulding expert, who has already done a lot of work with Engel,” he added.
Matteo Terragni previously held leadership positions with international responsibility in the raw materials and the automotive supply industries, as well as in tool manufacturing.
He studied chemistry at the University of Milan.
