Monica and Andrea Molinari, the latest generation at Autotex, continue their business by focusing on innovation, which has always been a cornerstone and objective of the Brescia –based company.

“Autotex’ machines, which stand out on the market for the degree of specialization they reach, are now equipped with everything that the smart generation can require such as the card for remote control, the automatic change of parameters for the article change, the cameras for the quality control and much more,” the company says.

Customization is the main strength of the company, which is always careful to study ad hoc solutions to best meet the needs of the individual customer, adapting the machines to the user and not vice versa.
