Atelier Coating


Only 50 days after the acquisition, Metalcoat started production at its new plant in Ascoli Piceno.
This was possible following the signing of the environmental permits by the local government bodies.

The result of the acquisition of Plalam’s business unit and related production lines on 5 September, the plant covers an area of 110,000 m2 (of which 60,000 m2 is covered), with two production lines for electro-galvanising and painting. The latter has a production capacity of 42,000 t/year for aluminium rolled products and 120,000 t/year for carbon galvanised steel and stainless steel rolled products.

Metalcoat is therefore preparing to become the third production player at European level in coil-coating, entering the international markets as a protagonist and decisively enriching the offer of the group of companies led by Matteo Trombetta Cappellani.

“We are proud and satisfied to be able to restart production just 50 days after the acquisition,” comments Trombetta Cappellani, President and CEO of Metalcoat, as well as Alusteel Coating, Alpine Anodizing and Aleu. “I would therefore like to thank the local institutions for their invaluable collaboration: during these weeks they have always shown a helpful, proactive approach and a long-term vision, with a common view to growth and enhancement of the territory.”

“The close cooperation with the local top management shows how the climate of collaboration is real and marked by common goals,” continues the entrepreneur from Bergamo. “In addition to obvious industrial reasons, in fact, our companies are also motivated by the logic of social sustainability and enhancement of the territory, with the aim of giving back the right value to production realities rich in history and precious skills, representative of that Italian ‘know-how’ that is synonymous with quality.”

With this in mind, the employees previously employed at the Ascoli Piceno plant have all become part of Metalcoat, under the control of Leone Holding, the Trombetta Cappellani family’s holding company.

“For the future, we foresee a total investment of €10/12 million over three years,” concludes Trombetta Cappellani. “We are certain that our operation will add further lustre to the industrial environment in Ascoli Piceno.”
