The company has a progressive and strategic expansion plan in place, which is already unfolding and I am looking forward to supporting its vision to become the leading supplier in its field. There is huge potential to introduce new lines of business at Pianezza and the other Aesica facilities to complement the existing client portfolio and working with the business units, I believe the offering will evolve and grow significantly.”

I am determined to build upon the long-term strategic supply agreement we have with UCB at Pianezza and also our German sites in Monheim and Zwickau and Stefano will play a pivotal role in ensuring Aesica becomes the leading contract manufacturer across Southern Europe. His experience and knowledge of the market will prove invaluable and I look forward to working closely with him as we develop the offering at Pianezza.”
