Dofasco, Anglo Platinum, ILVA Steelworks, in Taranto, Italy, as well as several projects located in the Rustenburg PGM belt, South Africa.
Under Gianni’s leadership, Anmar has played a major role in the modernization of today’s mining industry. Today, mining is more efficient, profitable and lean, and Anmar plays a key role in delivering on those expectations. Grossi’s business has helped one of the world’s largest mining companies, Vale, reduce downtime during its required maintenance periods. In what used to be a requisite repair and refresh each year for a minimum 4-5 weeks (meaning no mining or production), has turned into a once every 2.5 years cycle lasting between 9 and 12 days. This efficiency is directly attributed to the insight, experience and expertise Anmar offers.
Anmar and its’ subsidiaries contribute greatly to the global economy and growing skilled workforce. He employs nearly 350 people year-round, increasing the workforce to nearly 700 during shutdowns at various plants throughout Ontario. Gianni lives by the company’s core values, each and every day…safety, service, teamwork, responsibility, diversity and integrity.
In addition to Gianni’s significant professional contributions, Anmar has played a significant role in philanthropy in the Greater Sudbury community and beyond through a variety of generous donations to organizations such as the Northern Ontario School of Medicine, Laurentian University, Ducks Unlimited and the Princess Margaret Hospital Foundation.
