Last January 16, 2015, in the wonderful setting of Villa Zarri (see website, in Castel Maggiore, Pulsar Srl celebrated its first 25 years of activity (1989-2014).

The event was attended by employees and collaborators of Pulsar, its main suppliers and some of the most important customers who have shared with Pulsar over 25 years of history. All of them offered to Pulsar collaboration opportunities and new challenges, promoting at the same time its development, growth and orientation.

The event started with a presentation of the evening and included the reunion with the milestones who made the history of Pulsar (see the summary below reproducing what was said by Massimo Franzaroli, the president of Pulsar). Moreover, the dinner was characterized by an unusual and amusing entertainment. In the end of the event, all the guest visited the Villa Zarry distillery, well-known for its limited production of high-quality craft brandy.

During the presentation of the event, Mr Franzaroli wanted to go back, remember the milestones, and meet some of the most important customers of Pulsar:

"Pulsar celebrates its first 25 years of activity by acknowledging the people who believed in this challenge and accompanied the company's success over the years.

The first thanks goes to the people who have made the history of the Pulsar and believed in his abilities. A special thanks goes to those, who left a trace of their presence in our billboard of memories. We can start from Pasquale Berti and Ezio Monti, in memory of the end-of-arm robot made for Sapri, which first commissioned an order to the ancestor of Pulsar; Rita Tunioli, on behalf of Marchesini Group, one of the first buyers of large quantities of components; Gabriele Gnudi and Gianni Monari, whose Bemak, now part of the GB Group, in 1986 was the first customer to produce a machine completely assembled with aluminum profiles.

We do want to express our gratitude towards Daniele Vacchi, with whom we share the passion for mechanics and through which we became "Friends of the Museum of the Industrial Heritage of Bologna".

In reference to relatively closer events, we cannot forget our business partner, Tienno Bettati, who offered Pulsar the possibility to become part of the B Group and our first customers in the industry of Tissue, Moreno Gemignani and Massimiliano Vannucchi, Perini Alessandro and Francesco Sebastiani, on behalf of Sofidel, initiators of a relationship with a previously unknown world, that lasts over time.

In this regard, in 2009, two people believed in the idea of creating an award to recognize the excellence in the world of tissue, whose common factor had to be the passion. A special thanks goes to Angelo Del Carlo and Cristina Lazzareschi for supporting and trusting the foundation of the Club Technology and Passion (

Last but not least, we have to mention our traveling companions Enrico Grassi (Elettric80), Vanni Angeli (TMC), Giovacchino Giurlani (Futura), Roberto Martelli (Fabio Perini) and Barbara Papini (Gambini), among the others who couldn’t participate in this event, with whom every day we strive to give life to an unprecedented event, called It'sTissue (, that, after 2013, will be repeated even bigger in 2015 .

Finally, we aim to acknowledge the representative of the community that is the home of our company, Belinda Gottardi, Mayor of Castel Maggiore and Alberto Baccini, Mayor of Porcari, home of the Club Technology and Passion.

Hoping the future will set aside new opportunities and challenges, we look forward to seeing you at  It'sTissue 2015 to unveil the content of our new projects and developments. "

Over the dinner, Massimo Franzaroli rewarded the employees which have worked for Pulsar for at least 20 years, starting from Piero Grepioni, employee number one in the entrepreneurial history of Franzaroli; Paolo Pinghini and Alessandro Libanori, who joined the company in 1994; Andrea De Angelis, the current Technical Director, which began to work for Pulsar as a trainee in 1995 and Paolo Morini, who began in the same year to support Pulsar’s projects.

On the occasion of the event, Pulsar also introduces its new website, renewed in form and content, with the intent to represent a new stage in the history of its evolution.

Together with the site, we aim at introducing also Supernova, the newsletter of Pulsar. The first issue of Supernova will be entirely devoted to the celebration of the event.

In Supernova, readers will find photos and videos of the event, which can be downloaded, as a reminder of their presence to that nice evening.

Massimo Franzaroli and Lorena Bergamaschi, his wife, always at his side in his entrepreneurial adventures, as well as in private life, want to thank all the participants and invite them, together with all the friends and collaborators who could not be present, to celebrate once again the first 25 years of Pulsar srl.
