A press release said that the plant will be the Group’s fourth such site, and by far the most modern. The new lines at the plant were made in Brazil by the Madem Machinery Division that was created seven years ago, said Leandro Mazzoccato, corporate sales director for Madem Group and president of Madem-Moorecraft Reels USA. He said that the lines are fully automatic and embody Industry 4.0. “The system is linked by internet with sensors that can detect any small problem, if one happens, in seconds. The set-up allows us lines to be changed far quicker and requires 40% less labor to run the machinery. The automatic ink jet system can also apply any design/color (except white), he said.
“In addition to our manufacturing operations, we intend to establish assembly and distribution warehouses throughout the U.S.,” said Stephen Redhage, vice president and general manager of Madem-Moorecraft Reels USA.
The release said that the combined operations of Madem Group supply more than 120 cable companies in 40 countries.
