Forno Miotti TartsItalian-based Forno Miotti is a family-owned bakery established near Padua by Cesare Miotti back in 1930. The company, currently run by Cesare’s grandchildren Ferdinando and Luca Tabaschi, has been producing delicious bakery products with the same passion and care its founder had in the past.

We opted for Schib because of their experience in the bakery industry. The Schib CO50 machine is extremely well built and it ensures that we are able to meet our increased production requirements.”

Fharid Peron, Sales Executive at Schib, comments: “We are very proud to be part of the fantastic growth of Forno Miotti, an outstanding example of the Italian dedication to quality.”

Colussi Group is an Italian private company that operates in the food sector. Its activities include the production and selling of high quality products such as pasta, rice, bakery products and confectionery. The Group includes five of the most excellent brands of Italian tradition: Colussi, Misura, Agnesi, Flora, Sapori di Siena 1832. The adoption of modern procedures guarantees the authenticity, health and hygiene of the products from the factory to the table in our homes.

Simionato has provided Colussi Group with several systems, including weighing and packaging machines. The oldest machines dates back to 1990. Throughout the years, the relationship between the two companies has strengthened, through intensive cooperation that was implemented by a tailored service program.

Service scheduled through Simionato gives the opportunity to plan and reduce maintenance costs, without incurring any downtime with relative inconveniences. The maintenance contract includes a scheduled service by a qualified Simionato team member, intervention priorities and spare parts discounts.

“We are very pleased with this service, it has strengthened the collaboration between our two companies, establishing a relationship of continuity and reliability. The proposed maintenance contract gave us the opportunity to organize interventions in different plants, warranting ongoing maintenance of the machines. The positive results led us to a renewal of the contract,” says Mr. Pennisi,  Industrial Management of Colussi Spa.

The reliability, ongoing support and trust led the Francesco Barduca company to appoint Simionato as a partner.     



It all started in 1977 when a young Franceso Barduca initiated a long journey in the production and sale of leafy vegetables.

“Against many who did not believe in the project and with the support of Annamaria his young wife, Barduca decided to propose to consumers not just high-quality vegetables but also a service:  ready-to-serve fresh products” says Alessia Barduca. “It did not take long to see the first results, the company growth and the success of fresh produce, ready-to-serve vegetables, has become a reality and a necessity for many families. In 1999 the company decided to further improve the quality and health of its product, making another important and, at the time, unconventional decision to become an organic farm. Over time this choice has proved to be successful, not only because of economic interests but for deep convictions“.

Today Francesco Barduca S.r.l. exports its products, in particular organic salads, throughout Europe and has also been recognized as a “Company of Excellence” under the “Confindustria Awards for Excellence Andrea Pininfarina”, which rewards the best companies at a national level. As Alessia explains “These results were possible thanks to vital principles that the company has never lost: on one hand, a great respect to the values that the earth continues to give us and on the other hand, looking forward to constant innovation.”  Throughout this time, Simionato provided packaging and weighing equipment to Barduca including multi-head weighers, tray sealers, tray-filling machines, horizontal packaging machines and metal detectors. “The first contract with Simionato was in 1987 and we can say that it was certainly a good sign,” says Alessia Barduca, “the investment we made proved to be successful. The Simionato system is reliable and over time has increased our productivity. The area where we are most satisfied with is the ongoing customer support that Simionato has provided us.”



The latest release of the multihead scale 14-45 Salad version supplied includes technological upgrades which have increased production by over 30%. The multihead Salad scale has a system of vibrators that guarantees an optimized distribution of the product and the new inclination of the radial vibrators offer better product flow. This new upgrade results in a longer machine life and lower maintenance costs.
