we are a company that finds its historical origins at least as far back as 1838.
The company has always been owned by the Scaglia family and constituted the starting nucleus of the group of companies that is recognized in the “Scaglia Group”, an important group of companies with interests and activities in multiple industrial sectors, operating in the main countries of the world, with commercial branches and production sites ready to meet the needs of the market.
Located in Brembilla, about 20 km from Bergamo and just over 50 km from Milan, its production and headquarters are concentrated here, in a production area shared with some of the group’s companies.
Scaglia Srl began its production linked to the wood supply chain, evolving its product over time and moving on to metal-mechanical techniques and technologies, replacing the raw material with light aluminum alloys and plastic materials.
Company objectives and Stakeholders
The primary objective of every company is to create PROFIT.
Profit can be seen in multiple facets:
- dividends to shareholders,
- regular remuneration of employees,
- payment of suppliers;
- compliance with the payment of taxes and duties;
- donations to non-profit associations.
These objectives can be achieved:
- promoting health and safety in the workplace;
- respecting the environment;
- encouraging the increase of the company’s technological park;
- with the increase in company know-how;
- through cultural updating of staff for specific company skills;
- encouraging the cultural updating of staff even in the face of extra-work activities;
- with the cultural updating of the non-profit associations in which employees are involved;
- supporting the skills that employees have learned in their extra-work activities;
- the search for reliable partners and suppliers;
- compliance with national and international laws and regulations.
But all this is possible ONLY when a company is able to satisfy the needs of CUSTOMERS, realizing:
- a product that meets their needs;
- a product quality that can give added value to their activities;
- a product that has a cost suited to their expectations;
The company operates mainly in the mechanical-textile sector.
Basic clientele is mainly made up of: textile machinery manufacturers; end users of textile machinery.
Ous sales network is made up of representatives present on the main reference markets.
The average age of employees as of 12/31/2022 was 41.9 years.
All employees are covered by the Collective Agreement to which the company refers.
Below are some statistical data, updated as of 31/12/2022.
Night work is regulated with a specific operating procedure.
During the year 2022 the following data occurred:
Age Men Women
< 30 years 70% 66%
>30 e < 50 years 0% 33%
> 50 years 15% 0%
Total 24% 27%
The overall turnover value for the year 2022 is 25%.
Turnover means the ratio between: sum of employees who have left the organization, who have resigned, who have reached retirement age; who have been included in the organization; the total number of employees.
The use of overtime occurs to deal with unexpected workloads.
Part of the hours is paid, part of the hours is entered into the hour bank.
The choice is left to each individual worker.
Child labor is regulated by a specific operating procedure.
The procedure specifically indicates the activities PROHIBITED by law and for each department there is a summary diagram of the compatible activities.
The procedure is given in copy to the parents of minors, who sign that they have received information.
During 2022, the minors present worked for 1.5% of the total hours worked in the company.
Minors are prohibited from working overtime.
Their use is aimed at their training and education.
The distance of employee residences from the workplace is summarized in the following numbers:
- minimum distance is 350 meters
- while the maximum distance is 35 km
- and the average distance is 9.5 km.
- 9% of employees arrive at work on foot
- 4.5% of employees arrive by motorcycle
- 2% of employees use public transport.
- Traveling less than 5 km = 40% of employees
- over 5 km and less than 10 km = 21% of employees
- more than 10 km and less than 15 km = 18% of employees
- over 15 km and less than 20 km = 16% of employees
- more than 20 km = 5% of employees.
Safety in the workplace
The management of safety in the workplace is governed by Italian D.Lgs. 81/08 and its subsequent amendments and additions.
A fundamental part of safety management is collected in the Risk Assessment Document, periodically updated in its reference operational annexes.
During the year 2022 the severity index (days of absence / hours worked) is equal to 0.23; the frequency rate (injuries / hours worked) is equal to 13.6.
The magnitude of injuries ((severity index * frequency index) is equal to 3.16.
The water supply takes place entirely through the municipal aqueduct network.
The uses in 2022 were:
- Fire prevention network
- Civil use (bathrooms, showers, drinking water dispensers, coffee machines)
- Industrial use
Fire prevention network: 6 m3 of water were consumed for network tests.
Civil use: annual consumption is estimated at 476 m3 of water.
Industrial use: annual consumption is estimated at 20 m3 of water.
The driving force of Scaglia Srl is represented solely and exclusively by electricity coming from the national distribution network.
During 2022, 40% more energy was consumed compared to 2021.
It all comes from a greater production volume, never before recorded.
Wanting to report energy intensity, it was considered to analyze the relationship between energy consumed and hours worked.
The intensity value for 2022 is 21.98 kWh / hours worked, which represents an increase of 21% compared to the energy intensity of the previous year.
Considerations: Scaglia Srl is a manufacturing company with high energy consumption, due to the production of products made of plastic material. The amount of work developed in 2022 was also reflected in the turnover, especially considering the constant number of machines in the PLS department.
Methane gas is used only and exclusively for heating offices and production departments.
The supply of methane gas takes place only and exclusively from the national distribution network.
During 2022, 37,300 nm3 of methane gas were consumed. Against the consumption of 44,900 nm3 in 2021. An overall reduction of 17%.
Wanting to report the energy intensity, it was considered to analyze the relationship between energy consumed and the “DD Degree Days (20/12)”, i.e. it is the sum extended to all days of a conventional annual heating period, of only the daily positive differences between the ambient temperature, conventionally set at 20°C, and the average daily external temperature.
The calculation of the DD(20/12) is obtained by processing the data of the ARPA Lombardia weather station, present in a sports facility in the municipal area of Val Brembilla.
The DD(20/12) of 2022 amount to 2,534°. Compared to the 2021 value of 2,911°.
It follows that the intensity value for 2022 is equal to 14.31 nm3 / DD, which represents a decrease of 7% compared to the energy intensity of the previous year.
Considerations: the provisions of the law on energy saving and the careful management of switch-on times have meant that both the absolute values of consumption (m3) and the relative value (compared to the degree days) have been reduced.
During the year 2022, company vehicles consumed a total of 4,250 liters of diesel, corresponding to an emission of 11.20 tons of CO2.
Compared to the previous year, there is a reduction of 30.6%.
The Raw Materials: the plastic material
The considerations made in the electricity chapter are reflected in the data relating to the quantity of plastic material transformed during the year 2022.
Not taking pigments into account, the quantity transformed was 72% higher than the previous year. Absolute value never recorded since 1995.
NON RECYCLABLE material transformed in 2022 is represented by 0.3% of the total.
The Raw Materials: the Tube
The light aluminum alloy tube is used in the production of the Scalital department.
It is mainly purchased from Italian transformers, who, if necessary, issue certificates on the percentage of recycled material.
The standard average declared by the main supplier stands at a percentage of use of recycled material equal to 80%.
Since no specific requests have been received from customers at the moment, this data is considered sufficient.
Tubes consumption for 2022 saw a 25% increase compared to the previous year.
At the end of the spool’s life, the light aluminum alloy tube can be 100% RECYCLED.
The Raw Materials: the Bars
The light aluminum alloy bars are used in the Scalital department, mainly in the production of spool flanges.
They are mainly purchased from Italian transformers or from normal national trade.
Bar consumption for 2022 saw a 38% increase compared to the previous year.
At the end of the spool’s life, the light aluminum alloy flanges can be 100% RECYCLED.
Raw Materials: NON RECYCLABLE MATERIAL
A non-recyclable raw material is used in the production of the Scalital department. This material is purchased from Italian producers and subjected to European Community regulations.
The material is 100% NON RECYCLABLE.
Its consumption for 2022 saw a decrease of 7% compared to the previous year.
In consequence of what mentioned in the previous paragraphs, we can determine the CO2 emissions:
Scope 1: direct emissions
These are the climate-altering emissions generated directly by the company: they come from plants, assets and vehicles managed directly.
This category includes natural gas used for heating and fuels for the company fleet.
Scope 2: indirect emissions
These are the indirect emissions resulting from the generation of electricity purchased by the company which, with these purchases, indirectly contributes to the emissions generated by energy suppliers.
Accidents at workplace: 0 accidents
Electricity: energy/hours worked ratio: – 5%
Methane: nm3/degree day ratio: -2%
