Magniflex helps the victims of Hurricane Florence by: Magniflex


Miami, FL – Magniflex is teaming up with Food For The Poor to send disaster relief supplies to help families in North Carolina who continue to be affected by Hurricane Florence.
The commitment of over $250,000 in mattress donations will be distributed to the region as soon as possible.

Food For The Poor will ship the mattresses to Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Raleigh, N.C., which will oversee the distribution to families in need.

Magniflex is pleased to work with Coconut Creek-based Food For The Poor, one of the largest international relief and development organizations in the nation. While Food For The Poor’s mission primarily is to serve internationally, the charity has responded in the past to catastrophic disasters in the United States.

Hurricane Florence made landfall almost a month ago near Wrightsville Beach, N.C., as a Category 1 hurricane packing winds of 90 mph. The storm brought devastating amounts of rain that has left the community helpless.

“What happened in the Carolinas is devastating,” said Marco Magni, CEO of Magniflex USA Ltd. “Our thoughts and prayers are with all who were affected by the catastrophe and we are working with local partner agencies to address the needs of families in the affected areas.”

Magniflex is always open to help and has donated to both Goodwill and Salvation Army in the past. Magniflex is a worldwide mattress brand based in Italy with dealers throughout the U.S.

Berkel 1898-2018. A Slice Odyssey BY: VAN BERKEL USA


On October 19-21 at the Leonardo da Vinci Museum of Science and Technology in Milan, took place the exhibition “Berkel 1898-2018 – A Slice Odyssey” to celebrate the 120° anniversary of the brand that created the legendary “Red Flywheel Slicer”.

Wilhelmus Van Berkel, a butcher with a passion for engineering, on October 12th, 1898 in Rotterdam created the first mechanical slicer in history. Berkel, which has become a masterpiece of precision, craftsmanship and design, boasts hundreds of admirers and collectors all over the world.

The exhibition was also an opportunity to review the history of the last century through the “Volano Rossa” that does not endure the changes of time, always following them faithful to itself: avant-garde yesterday, vintage today. Protagonist of this journey is the B114 Volano, the iconic slicer that identifies the Berkel style: refined vintage design, mechanical precision, excellent craftsmanship. Twelve decades were thus told by six flywheels B114 interpreted by an artist as real works of art: unique pieces decorated by hand that evoke every twenty years through colors, symbols, iconic images, graphic motifs.

Over the years the decorations, the dimensions of the blades or some other details have alternated, but the structure and the functioning are and will remain eternal.
