Preo, discovering hot-melt adhesive systems.
Tradition and innovation come together as the main points of mechanical precision instruments. We are talking about the company PREO, which has just celebrated its 85 years of activity and is now led by Ermanno Preo, the current CEO of the company: "The company was founded by my grandfather Antonio Preo. He was working as a technician in a famous company in Milano that decided to specialize in producing high-precision mechanical parts. This continues to be our main focus and our core business". He continues as follows, "My grandfather's three children helped him in the early years until now, when I took over the business in our company as CEO of Preo S.r.l".
The company started out working with aeronautics, optical, and medical industries, then there was a turn: "We started producing parts for companies that manufactured gluing systems. We found this product very interesting so we decided to create our own gluing systems production and present ourselves as Italian manufacturers in the international market".
The CEO has clear ideas about the strengths of the company: "We follow two important dogmas, the first is that the product must aim to high technology; we are constantly evolving and innovating our products, which can always be customized upon need. The second is our aftersales assistance which grants us 24/7 customer service. We work in various sectors, each one has its difficulties and needs. This is why we are always ready to intervene each time we are asked to. Our products apply perfectly to every customer's needs. A key element of Preo S.r.l is that we have all the production in our establishment, this allows us to keep track of planning, production, and after-sales customer support. We "dress up" every customer's request to fit its needs".
Preo's next step is to expand even further in the international market: "Our industry might seem invisible, but it's not, we cover almost 90% of everyday products, which might have a hot gluing system at their base. Our systems are at the end of the production assembly, and it's the main reason why it's so important, it closes every production process. Our main goal is to export our "made in Italy" using the same innovation and knowledge that helped us gain our Italian market. Until now we have collaborated with distributors in various parts of the world; our greatest ambition is to create Preo branches to expand where we are less known, especially in Europe".
Cutting-edge technology in response to every need
The strength of the company relies on its industrial instruments, which have served every customer's need in the last decades. Constant research and development to reach higher standards have placed PREO at a highly competitive rate among industrial gluing systems, both in its standard applications and in its special and customized ones. Thanks to its efficient customer service and aftersales support, PREO products have expanded beyond Italy and made its rise through a worldwide market which is still in expansion.
Industrial application solutions follow all aspects of gluing systems: adhesive guns, spare parts for precision applications, cold gluing systems, and also specialized applications used in the cosmetic industry. Today Preo supplies industries such as cosmetics, medical, food and beverage, construction industry, bookbinding industry, and many more.
