The Sidel Group has expanded its offering in labelling technologies and key market segments. This will ignite a further phase of international development for Makro Labelling.
“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. We will capitalise on the success already reached by Makro Labelling 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,” said Monica Gimre, CEO and president at Sidel.
Sidel has been developing labelling solutions for the past 40 years. It is based in Mantova, Italy with its own labelling plant where it has advanced its labelling technologies, reaching speeds of 90,000 containers per hour, that are well-integrated into Sidel’s complete lines and Super Combi series.
New phase of development and growth
“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. 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,” said Simone Marcantoni, managing director at Makro Labelling.
Makro Labelling is a modular labelling machine company that was founded in 2009 by five partners. Makro’s machines can label up to five items per bottle in cold glue, hot glue, self-adhesive, and combination versions. Sidel’s pairing with Makro offers a key opportunity for both parties. The company is based in Goito (Mantova, Italy) and employs over 120 people.
