n January of this year, I was fortunate enough be the guests
of world-renowned manufacturers Omas at their new facility
in the Italian town of San Giorgio delle Pertiche, just north of
Padua.
Omas, the “company who like to think big,” have just opened a
brand new facility that is very well equipped; boasting an assembly
and delivery hall, sales marketing and technical design office.
I was informed by my hosts Laura Nelti, from Omas’ Export &
Sales Dept. and Danilo Carloni, Omas, Area Manager for Russia,
that the new arrangement will allow for more efficient skills
training and the open plan of set up of the assembly hall really did
make the workspace feel very spacious.
Attention to detail
Other than the cleanliness, another quality that I noticed was on
show at Omas was their meticulous attention to detail. As part of
my tour I was shown their new computer aided component storage
that makes every single machine component very easily traceable.
Every single machine part that Omas uses is stored in this large
filing system; right down to the washers and bolts. Each component
is marked with its own unique serial number, so when one wishes
to find a particular nut or screw, rather than searching through miles
of racking, a few seconds spent punching numbers into a keypad is
all it takes to find the part that was required.
I was also shown a test model of one of Omas’ Galileo plan-sifters.
The model itself is fully insulated by sandwich panel used for sorting
but in this instance and to display this particular model’s sorting
prowess, instead of grain this model displayed was in fact using sand.
Versatility
One attribute that I noted to be ubiquitous throughout Omas’ set
up here was versatility. One example of this is their ability to not
only manufacture large machines like those pictured, but are also
able to offer bespoke customised solutions.
This apparent attitude to versatility and flexibility also extends
to where they source their components. I was informed by my
guides that Omas will always try to cooperate with local suppliers
where possible; thus keeping costs lower whilst ensuring European
standards of quality.
In the past 5 years, Omas has enjoyed huge export growth. Going

forward however, they have designated all four corners of the
world, with Africa as their main target growth market. And there
appeared to be some evidence that their strategy has already been
successful on display. A comprehensive set of milling equipment
was on display, including a full set of roller mills and other
machinery to build a mill in Burkina Faso in Western Africa.
Forward thinking
Going forward, much of Omas Srl’s success hinges on their new
Leonardo roller mill. This, their latest design features direct drive
motors which will reduce energy costs as this uses “will save
fifty percent of the electrical power”of conventional roller mills
according to an Omas spokesman.
Following my visit, I was left with the lasting impression that
Omas’ facility was incredibly clean, well-organised, versatile
and spacious; with the company’s ambitions for future growth
and success very firmly entrenched in every aspect of their new
building’s design.
I believe that Omas’ entire set up reflects their positive, forward
thinking attitude. Based on what I saw during my visit, I am firmly
of the belief that this company certainly has the capacity to see this
ambition right through to fruition.
