EFI to Be Honored with American Chamber of Commerce in Italy Transatlantic Award
MILAN—December 7, 2015—Electronics For Imaging of Fremont, California, will be one of eight businesses honored this year with the prestigious American Chamber of Commerce in Italy (AmCham Italy) Transatlantic Award. EFI CEO Guy Gecht and Ambrogio Caccia Dominioni, managing director, EFI Reggiani, will receive the award from U.S. Ambassador to Italy John Phillips during a Dec. 10 gala dinner in Milan.
EFI Reggiani, a Bergamo, Italy-based team that is part of EFI, is a leading innovator in textile printing and pre- and post-treatment technologies. AmCham Italy selected Silicon Valley-based EFI as one of this year’s award recipients for its emphasis on international collaboration to strengthen and promote “Made In Italy” excellence with EFI Reggiani’s best-in-class textile technologies.
EFI Reggiani is focused on the development of new textile technologies to serve high-growth marketing applications. The leading-edge textile technology team has seen substantial sales of digital and traditional textile equipment at recent U.S. and Italian trade shows, and recently launched a new product, the EFI Reggiani NEXT aqueous inkjet textile printer.
EFI is being honored alongside several distinguished co-recipients also receiving the Transatlantic Award: American companies Dow Chemical, IBM and Victoria’s Secret, and Italian companies Adler Group, Carnelutti Studio Legale Associato, Gruppo Sofidel, Manifatture Sigaro Toscano and Sorin.
“We are honored that EFI has been selected for this prestigious award because it highlights the great opportunities possible with American investment in Italy’s renowned, high-quality industrial manufacturing sector,” Gecht said. “Our dynamic and innovative EFI Reggiani team is a key driver for EFI’s growth, and it speaks to the broader importance of strong transatlantic business relationships.”
The annual AmCham Italy gala event celebrates successful international commerce between the Italian and American business communities. This year’s event has the added significance of being both the 10th anniversary of the gala dinner and the 100th anniversary of AmCham Italy as an organization.
