Astoria coffee machines are produced in the CMA Group’s new plant, inaugurated in Susegana (Treviso) in 2007, and designed for “lean manufacturing”.
“Lean manufacturing” is a cutting-edge industrial philosophy, which originated in Toyota, that aims to minimize and thereby eliminate waste.
The production process is viewed as a whole in order to minimize the complexity of production, targeting flexibility. This has led CMA to rationalize workflows and machine assembly procedures, as well as to a significant increase in productivity, gaining overall efficiency.
General Espresso is the exclusive distribution center for Astoria brand commercial espresso machines in the U.S., Canada and the Caribbean. Machines are built to U.S. specifications with UL and ETL listings for safety and sanitation under NSF listing.
The espresso machines are offered in a complete line of models from manual to semiautomatic, automatic volumetric and fully automatic in sizes that vary from compact to one, two, three or four brewing heads to fit all possible applications.
