About eighty students from Verona’s technical institutes visited Manni Sipre in Mozzecane for the “The construction world” Masterclass held by Manni Group in partnership with COSP Verona and the project promoted by Veneto’s Regional Authority “VIA! Veneto in Alternanza”.
MOZZECANE – Workers easily move between the tracks and the gantries of the Steel Services Centre of Manni Sipre in Mozzecane. Among them, in the two large plants covered with photovoltaic panels in the province of Verona, there are also 80 students in their last year of studies from the main technical institutes of Verona, guided among the new-generation machinery to take a close look at some of the main steel processes: cutting to size, boring, marking, flame cutting with a robot, plate welding with robots, sandblasting and basic coating, priming, hot zinc-coating on beams, laminates and pipes.
A technical session was then held in the classroom to understand the job opportunities offered by the sector and the professional skills required. This way, the “The construction world” Masterclass, held by the Provincial Educational and Professional Guidance Committee (COSP) and by Manni Group as part of the project of Veneto’s Regional Authority “VIA! Veneto in Alternanza”, aims to help them and provide guidance in making choices for their future.
The students met Manni Sipre CEO Massimo Fabbri, who highlighted the production capacity of the six Italian plants where, thanks to 440 employees, 400,000 tonnes of iron and steel products are processed every year in the construction sector, but also in the mechanical constructions field, oil&gas systems, both light and heavy.
Massimo Ambrosi, the Special Operations Project Manager of the industrial giant, illustrated some significant examples of steelworks, including the futuristic structures of the 22 pavilions of Expo Milano 2015, made with the contribution of Manni Sipre.
The stop at the headquarters of Manni Group, the holding company that controls Manni Sipre and the other companies of the Group that are also involved in the guidance project, Isopan and Manni Energy, was inevitable. This is where President Giuseppe Manni welcomed and encouraged the young students: “Manni Group was founded 70 years ago and it now has more than 1,000 employees in 21 production sites spread across Italy, Spain, Romania, Germany, Russia, Mexico, France, Morocco and the Czech Republic. Our goal,” he said “is to offer solutions for a building sector where energy saving and environmental protection go hand in hand with safety.”
The Group’s HR Manager Nicola Bresciani gave the students some practical advice to introduce themselves accordingly to companies. “The iGen, or Post-Millennials, i.e. young people born between 1995 and 2010, have a leg up on others: they have grown up in the modern technological age, using the Internet and social networks daily, but they will need to prove that they can use them also at work, and not just in personal life”.
