Rold included by World Economic Forum among the “Manufacturing Lighthouses” with cutting-edge technologies.

17 . 01 . 2019

Rold is proud to announce it has been included by The World Economic Forum in its network of “Manufacturing Lighthouses”, state-of-the-art facilities that serve as world leaders in how to successfully adopt and integrate the cutting-edge technologies of the Fourth Industrial Revolution.

The new Lighthouses represent a range of industries and geographical locations, with four factories located in Europe, two in China and one in the Middle East. Importantly, the list also contains a medium-sized business, the Italian-based Rold. One frequent challenge highlighted by businesses is that they lack the scale and resources to implement advanced technologies cost effectively.

This programme has been designed to help industries adopt the technologies of the future.

The Lighthouses were selected from an initial list of 1,000 manufacturers based on their successful implementation of Fourth Industrial Revolution technologies in ways that have driven financial and operational impact.
