CEO Biagio Crescenzo: “our process of internationalization strengthens”

CTI FoodTech, the Italian global leading company in the manufacture of peach pitting machines, is ready to open a new commercial facility in Greece, which will also function as aftermarket support for spare parts supply to local customers. The opening will take place on Monday 22 January in Giannitsa, a business dense locality just outside Thessaloniki.  The inauguration, scheduled at 12,30 am, will be attended by the President, the Secretary General of the Italian Chamber of Commerce in Greece and the Italian Consul. The showroom, set up in an elegant and modern space, will display some of the machines that, thanks to their technology value, contributed to the qualitative growth of fruit processing industry, such as the Repitter Vision, the Peach Pitter 350 APA Vision, the Apricot Pitter CTI-1200 and the Peach Pitter model 320 APA.

A global vocation is part of CTI FoodTech’s DNA. The company in fact can count on a long established presence in Spain with a facility in Murcia. The company is currently the second producer in the world for number of machines installed. Every year 6 billion peaches are processed with its machines. CTI FoodTech also holds a record for a Southern Italian SME for number of patents achieved (around 100 in 20 countries).

“The opening of a new facility in Greece is strategic, because the Greek fruit processing industry is very developed and exports primarily in Europe – CEO Biagio Crescenzo stresses – Our machines, a product of Italian manufacture and technology, will be able to contribute to the growth of enterprises active in the fruit processing sector”.

Since its foundation in 1986, CTI FoodTech focused on internationalization. “Our strategy of exporting Made In Italy products proved effective – Crescenzo continues – Through the years we consolidated our leadership in Spain and extended our presence on new markets all over the world, from America to China. Our goal is to continue on this way, holding high our pride for Italian excellence.
