Direct manufacture of all equipment and full vertical integration make our solutions as efficient and individual as can be, ensuring continuity through all operations and all-encompassing support.

Our holistic approach looks at the installation as our product rather than any of its parts, a vision that extends to the breadth of services we provide and gives you access to a wealth of expertise and innovation at each stage of the project – from product and process analysis to commissioning and on site assistance.
CEPI has made it a priority to nurture talent and support its growth, fostering durable and trusting relationships with and among our people. We are proud of our qualified, reliable crew and their investment in seeing each project succeed.

CEPI has experienced continued growth through its history, and after the exceptional results of the past few years, we are building a new facility that will double our productive area in 2020. We are active worldwide with a large network of partners in the five continents, and offices in Malaysia to coordinate our activities in the Asian market. CEPI brings to the table a global knowledge of materials, environments, and markets as well as the continued research that goes into developing around 300 unique systems every year. With the focus on customization that pervades all aspects of our work, we dedicate to each project the level of individualized care it deserves.

Research

CEPI was born from the encounter between an engineer’s vision and a manufacturer. From these roots, it has grown into an idea factory that puts technology squarely at the center of our work. With the high levels of customization going into our projects and the diversity of needs we intercept, our research is always ongoing and has translated into several patents and constant innovations to all aspects of our field. Our R&D team aggregates engineering, manufacturing and food technology expertise to the end of analysing feedback from installations and markets as well as scientific and technological developments, and transforming it into new solutions for materials, environments, logistics and all hygiene and safety concerns. At the same time, all our departments from mechanical to software design and manufacture are also constantly developing new tools to meet specific issues emerging from current projects.

CEPI has a developed a partnership with the University of Bologna for the structural certification of our and the  development of projects and research on mechanical applications and materials testing.

We often support the research of our costumers, assisting them in developing their recipe and selecting the most suitable mix of materials for their end product.

Expertise

With full vertical integration, CEPI assists with every stage of the production process: from product and process analysis with hygiene and safety management, to engineering and control, manufacture, logistics, installation, commissioning, service including helpdesk, monitoring, spares and assistance, and project managment overseeing all workflow. All our teams are highly qualified, combining rich expertise and decades-long experience with an orientation to innovating, as well as an ease in integrating other resources that ensures the highest levels of flexibility and continuity.

Our projects are developed with a deep knowledge of the materials, technologies and markets and a special commitment to hygiene and safety. CEPI provides integrated automation of all processes, with a team of 24 designers and programmers developing touch panels and traceability software in parallel to the mechanical plant. All manufacture operations are part of a channelled system with personnel being regularly trained to ensure compliance. Food technology expertise guarantees a perfect match of our system with your raw materials, and is at your disposal during the development of recipe, assisting with your own research and innovation. Our Quality Control department will monitor all processes to confirm compliance with regulations and the hygiene and safety of all equipment.

Hygiene and safety

All our equipment and installations are designed to ensure full hygiene and safety in storing, conveying and metering operations. They are are compliant with all relevant international standards including ATEX legislation, and manufactured in a channeled system certified to international standard UNI EN 1090.
All CEPI processes from design to production, installation and service have been certified to Occupational Health and Safety Assessment Series OHSAS 18001, the international standard for occupational health and safety.
A sizable portion of our research is directed to the innovation of our hygiene and safety measures. Depending on what is best for your installation, we can equip you with components and systems to prevent and contain explosions, flames and contamination, filters and other air treatement solutions, insulation, dehumidification and other technologies for specific weather condititions. We developed special materials and manufacturing techniques to protect the raw materials in our installations, such as antistatic fabric Trevira for indoor silos and advanced welding techniques to prevent residuals and pollution. All our equipment is designed to be easy to clean and allows total emptying. Stainless steel is employed in all machinery and piping.

Responsibility

CEPI offers a wide array of benefits to its employees and their families to support their welfare at home and in the workplace. Benefits include healthcare, social care, education, entertainment, transports and canteen services, and are provided with the assistance of a no profit platform to ensure transparency, full fruition and support via welfare managers. We run a parallel program for our female employees to support conciliation between work, family and personal life, with an acknowledgement of the many barriers to parity they face in and outside of the workplace.
All CEPI processes from design to production, installation and service have been certified to Occupational Health and Safety Assessment Series OHSAS 18001, the international standard for occupational health and safety.
Our facility is equipped with a photovoltaic system that produced 320.000 Kw/h of solar energy in 2018.
We have received a legality rating certifying our ethical behaviour, conformity to legal standards and attention to proper management by the Italian Competition and Market Authority.
CEPI has developed a partnership with the University of Bologna for research and projects on mechanical applications and materials testing. Working with various no profit organizations operating in our territory, we sponsor training and work placement programs targeted at vulnerable groups, and have developed a close relationship with local schools to carry out projects such as apprenticeship and internship opportunities. A scholarship in the name of Giuseppe Milanesi (one of our earliest partners) is offered to vocational students in the metal sector since 2015.
