Vernipoll inaugurated a plant dedicated to manufacture and commercialize hospital furnishing and equipment in Apizaco, Tlaxcala. Luigi Maccotta, the Italian ambassador in Mexico, said that this inauguration represents an achievement for both Tlaxcala and Italy, bringing about benefit for the health sector in the State. Moreover, the diplomat trusts that this is going to be the first step towards increasing the presence of Italian products in Tlaxcala.
