PARCOL has sponsorized the 22nd ANIMP (Italian National Association for Industrial Plants) Annual Conference – Plant Components section, which was held on October 26th in Milan. The conference focused on strategies and market forecasts for the italian plant components industry. The aim was to promote the relationship between customers and suppliers and to identify concrete actions to be competitive on the global market. Topics of great impact for the engineering and supplier companies were discussed, for instance the many challenges that the chemical, petrochemical and energy industries are facing. These challenges are forcing companies to review their strategic operations and optimize their procurement-related activities.
