“Think Better, Do Better” It’s the slogan placed at the entrance of the new competence center, that embodies the spirit of the company.
The new competence center is about 800 square meters, which we launch today, faithfully embodies the text displayed at the door of the building, the area is intended to the activities of Research and develop (R&D), Systems monitoring, Software Development and after-sales services on the new Righi Smart Service platform. At the ground floor we find the Plant Management area.
The criteria, used for the construction of the new building, are based on four central pillars:
Eco-sustainability, the building dispose of innovative technologies for the use and the production of electricity from renewable sources. It is completely sustainable.
Care of the working environment, we wanted to ensure comfortable spaces for our employees. More than 50 workstations, located in different settings, give the possibility to choose, depending on the personal and professional needs, between different sceneries where the employee can work. The sceneries and the attractive colors want to create an atmosphere that brings the technicians closer to playful context while remaining immersed in the numerous plants places throughout the area. A choice designed to create a contrast with the big technological imprinting that characterized Righi Group. The environment wants to ensure a fair balance between personal and professional needs, the workstations are not assigned and are freed up every day by those who used them during the working day. We tried to find the correct compromise between privacy and sharing, creating the best conditions for our employees giving them the opportunity to better express their potential.
Network and Technology, we believe that sharing experiences and working closer to our clients, suppliers, collaborators, schools, universities and research centers is the best way to grow together and innovate. Creating a Virtuous Network and a technological community as the opportunity to become more distinctive and competitive to face the future challenges.
Training and Skills, between the strategic themes, training will be one of the project that will be empowered. The Righi Academy project is decisive, characterized by its own recognizable and structured brand. The project supports the desire and the commitment of the company to guarantee the best technical training for both the internal collaborators and the graduate students.
“Growing up means knowing how to innovate and knowing how to anticipate a continuous changing market” – states Mauro Righi, chief of Righi Group – “For our Group, innovation means turning towards digital integration between systems and intra-sector synergy: PLC automation, drive technology, electromechanics, energy and building technology. Righi Group is no longer a simple supplier, but the customer’s partner for a common project. Together to find the best solution, together to reach the same goals. We want to be perceived as innovators: reliable partners you can count on, able to face the increasingly digitalized future that awaits us with competence and expertise.”
