The annual assembly of the AIPE’s members, which took place on march 23, 2018 in Boario Terme (BS), reconfirmed the great participation and interest of the associates.
AIPE is at today the most representative association for the pressure equipment mechanical sector in Italy and includes, among its members, pressure equipment manufacturers and companies of the supply chain. The Association attracts an average of 20 new affiliates every year and it currently counts more than 70 enterprises, developing a total income of 2 billions of euro and employing over 7000 workers overall.
At just few years from the foundation, AIPE managed to develop a network among the associate companies, creating new collaborations, exchanges and commercial relationship. Such a networking effect tangibly contributed to the success of the association, which events are always characterized by the active participation of the companies.
