Brands plan production with CyberPlan

The Marche Region is at the forefront of industrial production. In fact, the Marche economy is characterised by a small-medium-sized, flourishing and highly specialised industry, which is homogeneously distributed throughout the territory, but concentrated above all on the coast and in the valleys, in specialised industrial districts. It is worth noting that the Marche region boasts twenty-eight industrial districts, equal in value to that of Lombardy.

These industries represent the evolution of activities previously carried out in an artisanal way, and in particular it was defined with the term of “Marche model” by Giorgio Fuà, founder of ISTAO in Ancona, a training centre for Marche entrepreneurs such as the Merloni brothers, or the Guzzini or even the Della Valle.

Among the production sectors, the main ones are (from the north to the south of the Region): the furniture industry in Macerata, the motorcycle industry in Pesaro, the textile industry specialized in jeans, the mechanical industry of Jesi, the pharmaceutical industry of Ancona, the shipyards of Ancona and the minor shipyards of Fano, Ancona, San Benedetto del Tronto and Civitanova Marche. Then there are the paper and household appliance industries in the Fabriano area, the musical instrument industry in the Castelfidardo district, the lighting industry in Recanati, the leather goods and armchair industry in Tolentino, and the footwear industry in the provinces of Macerata and Fermo. Finally, we must remember the industries spread throughout the region and not properly included in the Marche model: the wine industry of Matelica and the Castles of Jesi, Serrapetrona, the area of Ancona and Conero, Morro d ‘Alba, the tourism industry and finally the industries related to fishing, in the ports of Fano, Ancona, Porto Civitanova, San Benedetto del Tronto.


Leading Marche companies plan production with cutting-edge software

Numerous Marche companies, leaders in their respective sectors, use modern and advanced software for the planning and scheduling of the production department. Among these, we selected six primary companies, known to the general public for the quality of their products and for the high level of customer service. The selected companies are based in the provinces of Ancona, Ascoli Piceno, Jesi, Pesaro and Urbino and Recanati, cities in the Marche region of great importance. Let’s briefly discover the paths of innovation and improvement carried out by these three important companies:
