The Sidel Group has expanded its offerings into labelling technologies and has broadened its reach into key market segments with the acquisition of Makro Labelling.
Italy-based Makro Labelling is a modular labelling machine company that was founded in 2009. Its machines can label up to five items per bottle in cold glue, hot glue, self-adhesive, and combination versions.
Sidel said its pairing with Makro, a company which has grown rapidly with worldwide reach, offers a key opportunity for both parties.
“We are excited to be able to offer enriched labelling expertise and even greater flexibility to our customers, strengthening our position in labelling solutions and broadening our reach in dynamic markets such as wine, spirits, food, home and personal care,” Sidel CEO and president Monica Gimre said.
“We will capitalise on the success already reached by Makro Labelling’s built on expertise, innovation and operational agility. The low and medium-speed modular labelling machines made by Makro will complement our leading higher-speed technologies that are manufactured in our factory in Mantova, Italy and integrated into Sidel’s packaging lines.
“We extend a very warm welcome to all Makro Labelling employees now joining the Sidel Group.”
Sidel has been developing labelling solutions for the past 40 years. It has a presence in Mantova with its own labelling plant where it has advanced its labelling technologies.
“Joining forces with Sidel is an opportunity for further development and growth for Makro Labelling. After the acquisition, Makro will maintain its full autonomy as a unit of the Sidel Group and will continue to operate independently from its current headquarters,” Makro Labelling managing director Simone Marcantoni said.
“At the same time, we will be able to leverage and develop interesting synergies, exchange best practices, and offer an even richer experience for our employees and a broader portfolio to our customers. We are excited to embark on this new chapter of our adventure.”
