Particularly important is our presence in Centro Toscano per la Qualità (C.T.Q.) (Tuscany Centre for Quality), a consortium of companies and trade associations established with the purpose of answering the needs of small and medium-sized businesses in the field of consulting and training. In 2005 PRESSO FONDERIE was also a member of the group of companies that the C.T.Q. makes available to its students for possible post graduate training courses. In particular, PRESSO FONDERIE offers its know how to young school leavers and graduates offering the availability of training courses in the different departments of the company. PRESSO FONDERIE relies on the C.T.Q. also for promoting in-house training, giving our staff the possibility to attend the specialisation and updating courses the Centre provides for businesses.
PRESSO FONDERIE is also one of the founders of the Auriga Cultural Association, the primary objective of which is the promotion of the area through Val d’Elsa territorial enhancement activities in the world. The Auriga Association has recently published the first announcement of competition for degree theses on the subject of the Val d’Elsa area. The prizes offered for the winners included, among others, a six-month training course c/o PRESSO FONDERIE. Our company also sponsors important local basketball and cycling teams as well as artistic-cultural feasts and events that are held regularly in the area.
