Methods, timing, questions and answers are adjustable and calibrated on the company’s thirty-year experience to build a specific process that guarantees the quality of the individual product and the efficiency of its process. Thanks to GP Progetti’s eNX full the human-technology integration is effective: thirty years of experience and human flexibility supported by memory and IT means to bring the departments of Giacomo Martinelli to their maximum performance.
