Since the beginning, my father has been passing on his values
to his children and to all the company employees.
Environmental viability has been important to us.
These principles are always well in mind.
My father started producing pet food
to use the waste of his chickens
instead of throwing it away.
Then it dawned on him that there was a market for it.
In the Monge company we respect the environment by reducing energy use.
We also produce solar energy,
about 2 Mega,
through panels placed over the roof of the factory.
Together with other helpful details,
right now our production of energy is 50% of what the factory need.
Our logistics is tightly integrated
with the production schedule and that increases our efficiency.
The logistics is pivotal to our company
because we work in a very isolated area.
In fact this area is called the Island of Cuneo.
The roads here are narrow with twists and turns uphill.
We need vehicles that are both powerful
and performing, fuel efficient.
We are planning to use vehicles fuelled by liquefied gas.
If we could use gas fuelled vehicles
it would greatly help the environment,
but it will also cut direct and indirect costs.
We bought our first Volvo trucks
at the beginning of the 80s.
We chose these vehicles because the quality is high,
because they are long lasting, reliable,
and we went on like this. Volvo is now part of our tradition.
The history of this company is fantastic and I hope it will go on like this
for many, many years.
I wish this company to go on like this.
MACHINES ARE JUST THE MEANS
TO MAKE US MORE HUMAN
TO MAKE US STRONGER
BRING US CLOSER AND MAKE US SAFER
TO LAST LONGER
TOGETHER WE MAKE A DIFFERENCE
WE BUILD A GOOD MORNING, TOMORROW
