Integrating robotic and human intelligence without reducing workforce. Less stress and greater efficiency.

How are Italian businesses preparing to face the challenges posed by industry 4.0?

This question is of great interest to me.

SAPA is a fast growing company, with annual revenues of approximately 180 million, which plants are adopting state-of-the-art presses, while optimizing the role of artificial intelligence in the context of the production of car components.

It’s the work of the latest generation of machinery that transforms SAPA’s components from:

Simple plastic components → into Superior Auto Parts Always

Even if machinery, robots, artificial intelligence is playing and will continue to play a vital role in the growth of the entire sector, I personally do believe in the role of man, and so does the SAPA family.

My father used to say:

The man is who makes the difference

I believe in human intelligence and creativity, something hard to replace with a machine. I am sure you agree.

Two new articles about SAPA, which also include some brief comments of mine, appeared on and, the leading Italian magazines in the field of car components. They explain how SAPA is facing all of this.
