Toscotec Paper Machine (Shanghai) Co. was recently presented the Panda d’Oro Award – 2014 Edition from the Italian Chamber of Commerce in China. The award, aimed at promoting "made in Italy" and the Italian "style" in all of its forms and expression, was given during the "Italian Grand Gala" held at Jing An Shangri-La in Shanghai.

Toscotec Paper Machine (Shanghai) won the The Best SME Panda as "the Italian SME that has successfully invested in the Chinese market in 2014." The award was presented to Andrea Palleschi, GM of the company, by S.E. Alberto Bradanini, ambassador of the Italian Embassy. "This is a prestigious award," said Palleschi, "that rewards activities carried out by the Toscotec team in developing the Chinese market with products and solutions designed to satisfy the evolving needs of customers, market, and regulations in this great country’s tissue sector."

Toscotec Shanghai’s mission is to be the "benchmark for tissue technology in the Asia Pacific region, to provide the best service level to its customers, and strengthen the company’s presence in one of the world’s most significant and fastest growing markets" the company noted. 

With a skilled team of permanent engineers from both Italy and China, Toscotec Shanghai is now in a position to manufacture and deliver tissue paper machines to its clients, the company said. Active in the Asian market since early 2000, Toscotec S.p.A. has developed a strong commercial network in the Far East in recent years with the result that today 28 tissue machines have successfully started up for  Chinese clients, it added.

Jointly organized by the China-Italy Chamber of Commerce and the Fondazione Italia-Cina, sponsored by the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Ministry of Economic Development, and the Embassy of Italy in China, the Panda d’Oro Award–5th Edition awarded those Italian companies that most contributed to the development and consolidation of economic bilateral relations between the two countries.

The Grand Gala is a unique event that gathers entrepreneurs and representatives from both Chinese and Italian institutions, largely taken up by the Italian and Chinese press.
