An important economic node

 

The manufacturing system is the driving force of the local economy. It forms a diffuse network of small and medium industries in many different sectors.

For this reason Emilia is considered a large, multi-sector district with marked presence of mechanical industries in general, mechatronics and agricultural mechanics in particular.

 

Textiles, knitwear and plastics are located near Correggio and Carpi. High fashion is represented by outstanding firms whose brands are known everywhere in the world. There is a strong presence of the food industry, especially for production of salami. The low hills to the east in the cities of Castellarano, Casalgrande, Scandiano and Sassuolo, there is a very important industrial district dedicated to the production of the famous ceramics and tiles that are exported everywhere on earth. Historically, the province of Reggio is also home to important cooperatives that work mainly in large scale distribution and building. The industrial model here has accepted the challenge of innovation in processes and products, and market globalisation.
