HeavyTorque: Cometto

New drive at Cometto!

As known, Cometto was taken over by the international Faymonville Group in April.

With headquarters in Luxembourg Faymonville is the leading manufacturer of trailers for special and heavy duty transport. This family company employs around 950 people and runs production sites in Belgium, Luxembourg, Poland, Italy and Russia.

The customer is king

Faymonville’s quality management will have an effect not only on the production process but also in R&D, global service and spare parts delivery, in order to offer our customers the best possible products with outstanding service.
Since the takeover, Cometto has integrated seamlessly into the famously dynamic Faymonville Group. The initial focus was on redesigning the service and after sales organisation. What this actually means is: the customer is king!

• A 24/7 service hotline (+39 0171 263330) from now on guarantees practical assistance around the clock
• Global spare parts delivery will be significantly improved from now on
• Communication will be more (pro) active and comprehensive

Production & Know-How

The integration into the Faymonville Group gives Cometto new strength. Faymonville combines its expertise in production processes with specialist knowledge of Cometto in the field of self-propelled modular vehicles segment. Cometto will accordingly become the competence centre for self-propelled vehicles.

Better together

To mark the transition, the company has been renamed as “Cometto S.p.A”. In order to confirm its long-term strategy and ensure the sustainability of the company, the new shareholders increased the capital to € 12,000,000.

These are the first steps in the reorientation of Cometto. There are more to follow.  True to our new motto: Propelled to the MAX!

Announcement

HeavyTorque White Logo

It is with regret, that the HeavyTorque team have decided to take a stand based on an industry-wide ‘blind eye’ to the waste in the magazine and periodicals business.

HeavyTorque (#15, July 2018) was the final issue to grace the shop shelves, both on the High Street and across the travel network. As part of our onward strategy to adapt, HeavyTorque will now be distributed exclusively through controlled circulation and available through printed subscription.

Please note, this change will only affect newsstand purchasers. There will be no change for our loyal print subscribers.

Why the newsstand change? Quite simply, we can no longer (in good conscience) participate in a distribution programme that creates such an inherent waste of our precious natural resources – and money.

For those of you who have enjoyed HeavyTorque from the newsstand, we sincerely appreciate your business – and we would hope that you’ve enjoyed the magazine enough to consider a direct subscription?

Single Issues

If you prefer to purchase individual issues (one at a time), you will still have the ability to do so, both online (via the website), or by calling our offices +44 (0) 1572 3450872. Orders for single issues received before the pre-publication deadline will be mailed along with the subscribers.

Our website also caters for those looking to purchase back issues. To browse Back Issue availability, follow this link: https://www.heavytorque.co.uk/shop/
