In 2021 S.TO.R.I. confirmed a ten-year growth trend during which its turnover increased by more than 25%. This result comes on the fiftieth anniversary of S.TO.R.I.’s foundation in 1972.
Owned by Toscotec, a Voith company, S.TO.R.I. is located at Toscotec’s headquarters in Lucca (Italy) and specializes in rolls maintenance services for paper and converting machines of the tissue and paper industry. Its service offer includes predictive and preventive maintenance, press roll refurbishing up to a complete rebuild, grinding, dynamic balancing, upgrade installations, non-destructive examinations, and spare parts supply.
Lorenzo Iacopi, Production Manager of S.TO.R.I., says: “In 2021 we made important investments in new machinery for crown measurement, dynamic balancing, and run tests with the aim to continue delivering state-of-the-art services to our customer base. This year, we will be able to perform run tests on cylinders to verify their working conditions while simulating the actual operating conditions of the paper machine. We have strengthened our offer with complete services packages inclusive of inspection, repairs and overhaul of press rolls and other rolls, so that paper mills can rely on accurate planning to increase their OEE and avoid unscheduled maintenance stops.”
