Thursday, March 15, 2012


For the second consecutive year Hatebur, leading manufacturer of cold/hot forming presses, awarded to Galbiati Group as its best supplier 2011 for the mechanical processing of components for the metal forming systems.

It’s with great pleasure and satisfaction that we’re receiving this important award and we thank you for the trust demonstrated once again”.

The cooperation between Hatebur and Galbiati Group started about 10 years ago has been growing along time also thanks to the several know-how and competences exchanges addressed to the optimization of technical solutions, always with a fast feedback and a direct and interactive communication.

By this award, as in the last year, Hatebur confirmed Galbiati Group as best supplier and ideal partner for the implementation of particular machinery both of medium and large dimensions with high quality standards. On our side, we’ve been always tried our best to satisfy the requests of Hatebur in the best possible way.

This confirms once again our main tasks: to individuate the best technical solution to satisfy a need, to respond to a demand, to win a challenge.

These two important awards represent to us a further incentive to improve and reach the same result at a quality and efficiency level, not only within the area dedicated to mechanical processing, but also and mainly within the assembly sector.

We wish to refine our internal processes, to create synergies in order to get confronted, respecting deadlines, establishing order and discipline, creating a common and shared process.

Galbiati Group Supplier of the Year 2010

Wednesday, June 15, 2011


Galbiati Group was rewarded from Hatebur Umformmaschinen AG, manufacturer leader of cold/hot forming presses, like best supplier 2010. We have received this important recognition with pleasure and satisfaction.

Hatebur is a global leader in the manufacturing of high-quality forming machines and tools, which are used to produce precision metal parts in large quantities. Founded in 1930 as a family enterprise, they  have realized  a number of groundbreaking products.

The cooperation between Hatebur and Galbiati started 10 years ago and during this period both companies have invested much. This business relationship has grown over time also thanks to many meetings in order to improve and discuss technical issues, to propose solutions, to get fresh feedback and direct dialogue.

Hatebur confirmed that Galbiati is the ideal partner for mechanical machining of mid and large-sized components that require high quality standards, as they stated with their own words: “We were glad to present this special award to Galbiati Group S.R.L. in recognition for their merits in mechanical processing.”

Galbiati Group has done its best to meet the requirements of Hatebur designs and projects, also investing in dedicated machines tools. This shows Galbiati Group’s aim, that is to say:  identify the best technical solution to fulfill a need, meet a demand, or win a challenge.

There is not better manner “to crown” the first work decade together, and get ready for the next one.

“We require our suppliers to provide us with near perfect quality,” interview with Mandelli Sistemi

Saturday, May 22, 2010


Bed Machining

Interview with Mr. Antonio Strafallaci, Production and Logistics Manager at the Riello Group, and Marco Canesi, Incoming Product Quality Control and Workshop Manager, at Mandelli Sistemi

We asked one of our long-term customers to give us their view of our company. An opinion and an evaluation.

This is how Mandelli Sistemi sees us, a historic international company that manufactures small and mid-sized machining centers. Mandelli is synonymous with quality and maximum precision machining around the world.

Since 1997, Galbiati provides the machining and assembly of the machine beds for the machining centers.

“One of Galbiati’s strong points, something I noticed right away, is the ability of its staff to take initiative within the company. I have never encountered obstacles. The person I deal with speaks my language, takes responsibility, faces the challenge and urgency of the demand, and usually everything is resolved very quickly. For me, flexibility is the ability to resolve problems independently and rapidly. Reactivity.

Marco Canesi, Incoming Product Quality Control and Workshop Manager

The flexibility that Marco Canesi speaks about is one of Mandelli Sistemi’s strengths, which has contributed to the success of the Mandelli machining centers. In most cases, their customers do not buy a catalogue item; rather they express a specific need, present a problem that often requires the development of a custom innovative solution. The ability to customize products requires flexibility that Mandelli then projects on to its suppliers.

“In addition to machining of large parts with very high-precision, which is very important for us, Galbiati takes care of any problems. This is always important, and becomes even more important in times like these where the lack of planning has eliminated any space for maneuvering and has made delivery dates an even more important factor. Basically, there are no parachutes, so the ability to react and respond in very short times is fundamental,” Mr. Antonio Strafallaci.

It is thanks to a well-stocked up-to-date machine fleet and two shifts of skilled employees that Galbiati Group manages to offer this flexibility on a daily basis, and to take on its customers’ urgent needs with very short lead times. That is why over the years  we have invested in the quality of the product and machining.

Galbiati Group is the only company in Italy, and among the very few in Europe equipped with a Zeiss dimensional measurement machine for large components. An important indicator for quality.

Quality is created, sought on a daily basis, because the quality we require from our suppliers is close to perfection. The machine is important, but is insufficient for guaranteeing precision. It is the skill of the person using it that makes the difference. There is reciprocal esteem with the team at Galbiati Group. An exchange between individuals who respect each other and recognize each other’s abilities. There is always dialogue when you speak the same language” continues Marco Canesi, the shop manager.

Bed Machining

“All Mandelli customers seek extreme precision. And inspection consists of providing them the evidence of this precision. That is why quality is vital for us. In this direction, Galbiati Group has made significant investments in terms of people and machines, which guarantee everything we are looking for.”

Antonio  Strafallaci, Production and Logistics Manager of the Riello Sistemi Group
