Acquisition in line with the Group Business Plan
Milan, 20 July 2016 - A2A acquired today, through its subsidiary A2A Ambiente, the Rieco-Resmal Group.
Rieco and Resmal are the main companies of a group operating in the collection, selection and treatment of special, non-hazardous waste - plastic, biomass and, in particular, waste paper - with 5 production facilities in the Milan area and a treatment capacity of around 400 thousand tonnes/year.
The acquisition - the Group's Chief Executive Officer, Valerio Camerano, explained - is in line with the strategic objectives of our Business Plan, aimed at increasing presence on the environmental sector and developing business connected with the Green Economy.
