- Purchasing Managing Director and Chairman of Arda Natura
ACEF is preparation, collaboration and responsibility!
I have been working in ACEF since 1989 and have seen this company grow and become established in the distribution of raw materials for pharmaceutical, galenic, cosmetic and nutraceutical purposes.
Today indeed, the company is a market leader and has solid experience in the field: ACEF employees are not only competent and
highly qualified professionals, but also generous people who constantly engage in ACEF efforts to achieve a common and shared
With regard to the cosmetics market; in this 30 years ACEF has become an indispensable reality for a wide range of customers; in
my opinion, we have reached this position, thanks to the dedication and honesty we have brought to these many years of work.
After graduating as an Industrial Chemical Expert, from May 1975 to 1986 he worked as a Commercial Technical Manager for Croda Intenational – a leading English company in the field of cosmetic raw materials. In the following 10 months, he held the same position in the commercial field at Zschimmer & Schwarz, a German corporation. Later he held positions in the technical and commercial cosmetics and food sectors with various companies.
In 1989 he decided to accept Mr. Grassi’s offer to join ACEF and the challenge to create a cosmetic field from nothing. The cosmetics division has contributed massively ACEF’s success and today more than 50% of company turnover comes from this sector.
In 1992, Arda Natura was “born”, a production unit able to independently supply ACEF with a series of “homemade” raw materials rather than relying on third-party suppliers. Today, he is also Chairman of Arda Natura and Managing Director of Purchases.
Among his duties are the coordination and implementation of the company’s development strategies; the management of the purchases of the products to commercialize; managing trade relations with suppliers; the stipulation of the contracts.
