Since taking a controlling interest in Cremona, Italy-based Ocrim SpA in 2008, the Antolini family, which had been longtime investors, has been building and expanding upon the company’s long history of supplying the global grain milling, handling and processing industries. Through investments in personnel, technology, and educational programing, Ocrim has grown its global reach and expanded its customer base. The company actively stays on top of the latest trends and makes investments in the latest technology. A 2014 partnership with FMB Eng.In.E., a startup spin-off company of the University of Parma, has proven useful. The company is operated and run by a group of professors from the unversity’s industrial engineering department. Together, Ocrim and FMB Eng.In.E. are collaborating to develop new technologies.
