The new factory is in Mulazzo, in the Italian region of Massa-Carrara, North Tuscany. It will be the sole production facility for the 50-metre long, 600 tonnes per hour Twin Freccia Rossa.
The filter press is designed to combine the efficiency of two machines into a single product, offering faster sludge feeding and cake discharge time.
Matec Industries marketing manager Tatiana Bini said the company is taking on 60-70 new employees to work at the new factory in its offices and workshop.
"We are opening the new factory as we have had a lot of new orders and need to increase production," she added.
Italy-based Matec will now have three manufacturing bases. In addition to the new factory, Matec recently acquired the Alfa Pompe factory in Verona and has a manufacturing facility for small and medium machines at its headquarters in the town of Massa which is also in the Massa-Carrara province.
The Twin Freccia Rossa was first unveiled at the bauma trade show in Munich, Germany in 2022.
