STAND NR. 53 - 54
The Marchesini Group designs and builds stand-alone machines and customised lines for packaging pharmaceuticals and cosmetics. It was back in 1974 that Massimo Marchesini had the original idea of building packaging machines and built his first one in his garage at home. Over the years, various companies that were complementary to his business merged and were even taken over, thus transforming the Marchesini Group from the once small local company to the impressive multinational enterprise it is today, capable of creating packaging technologies for the most important products of the Pharma and Beauty industries.
In order to better oversee international markets, the Marchesini Group avails of 35 agencies, which together with 14 foreign subsidiaries represent the Group in over 116 countries worldwide. 87% of the Group’s turnover is generated by exports, with important peaks in Europe, China, the USA and Latin America.
Even though the Marchesini Group has extended its foreign sales and after-sales networks, its true strength is that all the machines and systems are produced in Italy. This guarantees top “Made in Italy” product quality, as well as enhancing relations with local businesses.
The Headquarters in Pianoro (Bologna) is where a wide array of packaging solutions for pharmaceuticals and cosmetics are assembled, from complete lines to stand-alone machines for filling liquids and sachets at the end of the line (cartoners, palletizers and case-packers). All other activities are carried out by the various companies of the Group. The Headquarters is therefore the bond that holds together the various companies exploiting the same design methods and favouring the exchange of information throughout all production phases.
In terms of social awareness of its business, the Marchesini Group is committed and responsible towards the people who work for the Group and those of the local community in the area where it is present.
The Group is also engaged in several activities to prevent and reduce environmental impact, such as the responsible use of raw materials, optimised logistics and waste management.
