Gambini has increased its global presence after it announced a joint collaboration with Vancouver-based Applied Motion Systems (AMS).

The agreement will provide tissue converting technology and engineering services to the North American marketplace.

Bart Drage, managing director of Gambini America, said: “This strategic agreement will allow Gambini America to enhance our technical service support in North America.

“AMS has been active in the tissue converting industry and brings to us experienced technical resources which will also allow us to maximise the performance of our North American electrical platforms.”

Paul Johnson, AMS chief operating officer, said: “This collaboration allows us to further help customers increase production throughput and flexibility when upgrading a converting line.

“Our customers can strategically integrate new Gambini machine sections into their existing production line to address their specific needs and budget.”

Gambini and AMS will be holding a customer open house from March through May 2015 at the AMS facility in Vancouver, which will feature Gambini’s SmartCut Core Maker.

Gambini is headquartered in Lucca and specialises in the manufacture of tissue converting machinery for the consumer retail market for the production of bathroom tissue and kitchen towel products, and for the AfH commercial and industrial roll markets.

AMS is an applied technology company that specialises in high-performance coordinated drive and control systems across a range of industries.
