New CEO for the Italian Assyst branch

As of September the 1st 2021, Antonio Sgroi will take over as CEO of the Italian subsidiary, based in Lainate (MI) and operating in Italy since 1989, after Luca Salvatori, who led the company solidly during the complicated period of the Covid pandemic.

Antonio Sgroi brings to Assyst more than thirty years of experience in the market of 2D and 3D CAD, PLM and cutting room technologies for the fashion, upholstery and composites industries, having held managerial roles in the main players of the market. Since 2011 he is also a member of the Antia Board of Directors, that is the Italian Association of the professional technicians of the fashion system.

“My previous tasks have provided me with an in-depth understanding of fashion as well as technical textiles processes and an understanding that digital transformation is an indispensable step for the industry. In particular, 3D is the key technology for successful digitalization. With this in mind, I share Assyst's commitment in supporting fashion companies in their journey for the digital transformation, especially with the inclusion of 3D in all levels of the process with technologically advanced solutions," says Antonio Sgroi.

“We have big projects in the pipeline," says Hans Peter Hiemer, Managing Director of Assyst, "Assyst supports fashion companies in all processes related to the product, from the initial idea to the final consumer, with integrated, end-to-end solutions. 3D is at the heart of new process solutions. From 3D sketching with Vidya Sketch, to product development, where 3D samples largely replace physical samples, to 3D photo shoots, to deliver the highest quality representation of the virtual product. Not to mention the possibilities in retail with Digital Showroom. Digitization also has a strong impact on the sustainability of processes and the reduction of the ecological footprint, an increasingly important and fundamental aspect. We are confident that the wealth of experience in the industry will allow Antonio Sgroi to support the commitment of Assyst in the Italian market, with an increasing attention to the needs of individuals. It will certainly benefit the synergy and the partnership with our customers”

“Italy is a very important market for Assyst" continues Hiemer "and in the long history of the Lainate office important goals and successes have been achieved. We also thank Luca Salvatori for this, and wish him all the best. The appointment of Antonio Sgroi, a man of great professionalism to whom we give maximum confidence, reflects the desire to strengthen the link with fashion companies in Italy and to provide solutions and services closer to the needs of the market".
