RAM - Chi siamo

Who we are

Our vision is to produce high quality fuels using the best available technologies, motivated and professional human resources and respecting the environment and people’s health and safety.

The Milazzo Refinery, also known as RAM, stands out at an Italian and international level as one of the main plants in the oil processing sector for the production of fuels, combustibles and raw materials for the petrochemical sector.

Furthermore, the company is a reference model in the sector for its commitment to safety, reduction of emissions and technological innovation.

With over 60 years of history, and expanding over 212 hectares between the municipalities of Milazzo and San Filippo del Mela, in the province of Messina, it is an integral part of the territory that hosts it..

In fact, the majority of the 600+ employees of the company come from the Valle del Mela. Furthermore, the activity of the Milazzo Refinery makes a decisive contribution to the related activities linked to the operations of the port of Milazzo, since most of the goods that are moved through the port are products coming to and from the refinery.

A strategic asset for the country

The Milazzo Refinery plays a fundamental role in contributing to the country’s energy needs and does so with the highest standards of efficiency, safety and sustainability.

Our principles. our la nostra ethics

Our principles and values that inspire us in our work, contained in the Code of Ethics, are: respect for the law, respect for the environment, transparency, honesty, loyalty, correctness and confidentiality. The Code of Ethics clearly and explicitly defines the rules of conduct and the ethical and social responsibilities of management and employees. It, in turn, is part of our Model 231,a very important tool, required by law, to ensure the ethical and transparent management of the Company. As indicated by the Model itself, we have set up an independent Supervisory Body which is responsible for supervising and verifying its effective implementation.

The “Model 231” came into force in Italy with Legislative Decree 8 June 2001, n. 231, with the aim of providing companies with an Organisation, Management and Control Model. The provision introduced the discipline of the administrative liability of companies, which can be held responsible for crimes committed by employees in the interest of the company and, consequently, sanctioned. The adoption and effective implementation of organisational, management and control models suitable for preventing crimes allows the company to exclude these forms of liability. The Code of Ethics is an integral and substantial part of Model 231.
