Two decades of partnership with Med Link

GMA celebrated 20 years of successful business partnership with international logistics company, Med Link SRL in October last year.

GMA representatives, and the management and employees of Med Link celebrated the anniversary event at the company’s garnet reprocessing plant in Aulla, Italy. The guests were also given a tour of the plant including the storage facility.

“I remember meeting Med Link President Piero Raciti for the first time. It was in Viareggio in November 1999,” GMA Europe General Manager Andreas Höfner said.

“We were looking for storage facilities to support our distribution of GMA Garnet™ abrasives in Italy.”

At that time, Piero worked as a partner for a shipping company. A business relationship was soon formed and the first containers of GMA Garnet™ arrived in Livorno in early 2000. The business relationship with Piero grew when he established Med Link in 2003. Seven years later, the first garnet reprocessing plant in Europe was launched in Aulla.

“As we celebrate 20 years of successful partnership, we look forward to working with Med Link for many more years to come,” Andreas said.
