On March 7th Smiths Interconnect celebrated 60 years of activity at its Genoa site during a ceremony held at the Palace of Prince Andrea Doria, one of most sumptuous historical buildings in the city of Genoa.
The ceremony was attended by employees, customers, suppliers, business partners, research institutes and local institutions, including representatives of the Municipality, the Unions and the Association of the manufacturing and service companies in Italy (Confindustria).
It was a great opportunity to celebrate the foundations of the company, that was established in 1959 under the name of CONNEI (Connettori Elettrici Industriali) to introduce the hyperboloid contact technology in the connectivity solutions offered to the Italian market.
A long journey has seen the small, high technology company of 1959 develop into the global provider of connectivity solutions of today, following the acquisition by Smiths Group plc in 1995, and the name change to Hypertac in year 2000.
“We are delighted to welcome our stakeholders and celebrate 60 years of activity with them”, said Paul Harris, Vice President Sales and Marketing Smiths Interconnect “Our Genoa site has a long history, and a unique culture, that have made it an extremely important location in Smiths Interconnect.” “We are proud of our heritage” added Giuseppe Lancella, VP Business Development Smiths Interconnect and Managing Director of Genoa site. “Our Hypertac hyperboloid contact technology has always ensured, and still ensures today, a unique position in the market of high reliability connector solutions.”
