GMM USA prepares to expand in 2018


GMM USA, the American subsidiary of Fiorano, Italy-based company GMM Trasmissioni Meccaniche, has successfully completed its first year of business at Clarksville, Tennessee in the heart of the US Ceramic Valley.

After starting up in October 2016, GMM USA has begun working with all the ceramic companies in the region as a general supplier of mechanical components

 Key success factors include the company’s high level of specialisation, a just-in-time service backed by large levels of inventory, and 24/7 support provided by qualified Italian personnel. In view of the good results achieved to date, the company has decided to expand both its sales offices and its warehouse, which will have double the initial capacity.

One service that is particularly in demand in the Tennessee area is the analysis and predictive maintenance provided by GMM USA through BBM Maintenance Partner, a company acquired in June 2016.
