Luciano Salda – President

I was born in Bazzano 16th May 1942; I am married to Carla and I have a daughter, Elena.
I began as an apprentice in the early ‘60s in Bazzano in a mechanical workshop. After having covered several operational roles, such as miller, turner and assembler, in 1965 I joined Automac SpA (Gruppo Fabbri) in Vignola. Within this company, I professionally grew a lot and, after few years, I decided to start my own business, founding CMS in 1975. The first customer was precisely Gruppo Fabbri, which commissioned me the first activities. From there, the company’s growth started. To pursue my industrial project, I then founded other companies, which over time set up CMS Group.
I have always stood out because of my perseverance in reaching challenging goals, an energy that has turned a small workshop with five employees into a leading industrial group in mechanical constructions. However, my actual distinctive trait is the innovative power, which is also expressed in my many patents as well as my innovative products that also take into account environmental problems.

Emanuele Cosci – Director of Customer & Project Management Dept.

After my Degree in Aerospace Engineering at the University of Pisa, I started my working adventure in mechanical engineering of automatic machines, acquiring substantial experiences in packaging. My technical training has favoured a professional evolution always in contact with the product both in the planning and in the manufacturing phase.
I joined CMS in 2006 where I started leading the Technical Department. In 2015 I joined the Executive Board as Head of Business Unit. From 2018 I am part of the Board of Directors: quotations, projects management and relationships with consolidated customers are under my responsibility.
I was born in Pisa so… don’t ask me to talk in “Modenese”, even if I am just working on it!
