Today marks an important milestone in QualiCal’s history … let’s start 2019
Generating data, generating value: QualiCal to launch standalone exponential & digital business
QualiCal announced today plans to establish a new independent business focused on developing solutions catching the customer production experience through — also — the industrial internet of things.
The new DIG:ITA company will bring together software solutions that include products like QualiCal Digital’s Asset Performance Management, as well as the QualiCal MOSAICO Solutions business units.
QualiCal said the company will “provide solutions 4.0 for asset-intensive industries with a focus on the limestone and lime, sugare industry, firing systems, and mining industries.”
The new business will start with
• a consolidated annual software revenue,
• a field service management services, digital workforce
• and an existing global customer base.
QualiCal said the DIG:ITA company “is intended to be an independently run business with a new brand and identity, its own equity structure, and its own board of directors.”
“Today marks an important milestone in QualiCal’s history,” said Q Chairman and CEO Carlo Cella. “We are aggressively driving forward as an OEM provider of plant, equipments and services in the lime industry — three highly complementary businesses poised for future growth. We will continue towards our #neverstopINNOVATION vision, to improve our operations and balance sheet as we make QualiCal simpler and stronger.”
QualiCal remains on the cutting edge of lime industry, manufacturing 3D equipment and tools, implementing new equipments to improve reliability and efficiency of its Lime kiln portfolio, discovering new frontiers in hard-burned lime application in addition to the traditional soft burned limestone and dolo-lime and hydrated lime applications.
Carlo Cella said that separating exponential activities allow them to invest in innovation and pursue their own growth strategies. “Today’s actions unlock both a pure-play digital company and a tier-one lime services player,” Carlo Cella said. “We are confident that positioning exponential business outside of QualiCal’s current structure is best not only for QualiCal and its owners, but also for these businesses, which will be able to strengthen their market leading positions and enhance their ability to invest for the future,” he added. “Our vision is to drive more individualized, precise and effective industry outcomes. As an independent global digital business, we will have flexibility to pursue future growth opportunities, react quickly to changes in the industry and invest in innovation.”
