The headquarters facilities are in Bentivoglio, about ten kilometres north of Bologna, Italy.
The headquarters consist of three factories set side by side, plus other service buildings (an internal restaurant and technological centres).
The total covered space measures 38,000 square metres, surrounded by 30,000 square metres of gardens, plus yards and parking lot.
This is the location of the central research and development, design, production, marketing and education/training organizations.
The manufacturing organization has two major components:
the Product Manufacturing Center which produces standard products;
the Application Manufacturing Center, which produces customized systems to be integrated into customers' facilities.
Marposs operates with the most advanced equipment to assure the quality of its products.
For instance, the assembly of printed circuits is performed on a completely automated SMD line, integrated with opto-electronic systems which assure optimum levels of quality together with a high degree of operating flexibility. Testing is made with advanced technologies and machines: full circuit inspection using mobile inspection probes perform boundary scan-type tests, the only ones capable of performing high reliability tests on printed circuit boards with complex integrated circuits.
Both Manufacturing Centers work in tight cooperation with the R&D department and with the three commercial divisions:
the Machine Tool Division operates in the world of measurement and control on machine tools;
the Standard Component Division works in the field of standard gauges and components for the gauge makers;
the Special Application Division covers the area of customized gauging stations (manual benches and automatic machines) tailored on the specific customers requests.
Marposs mission is to provide precision metrology equipment for use in the workshop environment during and after machining operations.
The equipment is designed and built for a wide range of in-process and post-process applications and for guaranteed performance in even the harshest shop floor conditions.
Marposs provides a global answer to customers needs, supplying the metrology equipment in association with non-destructive testing and a wide variety of sensors and machine tool controls.
Marposs products are offered as a part of a complete project management and simultaneous engineering support to the customer.
Marposs has become a world leader in measurement technology by offering its customers a combination of advanced products, market knowledge and commitment to long term global partnerships. Building on these foundations, Marposs has created an international organization able to deliver application, design and service support virtually anywhere in the world.
Following the line drawn by the founder, Marposs applies the following principles:
be everywhere the customer works to give the best support at the moment of sales and after sales
produce the most suitable solutions and continuously invest in research and development
fight for improving the customer’s satisfaction, as a measure of the quality of the work done.
Such principles were at the basis of the past success and the company will grow and flourish in the future based on them.
