Packpact: Seven Companies For Comprehensive And Flexible Solutions Some successful experiences born from the collaboration between companies operating in the same sector

In 2013, seven Italian leading companies in the processing and packaging sector decided to join forces and share their know- how to optimise their business and increase their competitiveness in the global market. The project was born under the name “Processing & Packaging – The High-Tech Italian Way” and was renamed in 2019 as “PACKPACT – Your partner in Advanced Processing & Packaging”.
Today PACKPACT is a network of national manufacturers able to offer customers complete, customized and advanced solutions, backed by the assurance of made-in-Italy technological excellence.

Through the integration of each company’s specific skills, the network enables the creation of innovative systems that can perform multiple functions in a single unit.
Each company represents the excellence in its specific business, and it is the synergy created through the proactive collaboration among the companies the real added value. Thanks to these collaborations, customers can interface with a unique partner and benefit from a one-stop- shop.
Aiming to establish new collaborations with other Italian producers in the processing and packaging sectors, today the companies of the network are: Cama Group (secondary packaging), Clevertech (front & end of line systems), Ilpra (traysealing, thermoforming fill and seal machines), Makro Labelling (labelling), Ronchi Mario (filling&capping) Tosa Group (wrapping); Universal-Pack (stick pack & sachet fill and seal). With a growing turnover year after year, in 2008 the companies belonging the network recorded a total turnover of 300 million Euros, of which approximately 85% came from exports.

The network employs over 1,050 people, with a 20% increase in employment in the last two years. The positive trend can also been seen in the ongoing investments in R&D and in the marketing activities carried out in several markets to represent the Italian excellence of the production chain in the processing and packaging sectors around the world.
The markets where the network has had an active presence in the last two years are Iran, India, the United Arab Emirates, Russia, Algeria, China, Australia and Thailand. The next important appointment is Interpack 2020, where companies will be represented individually, each one with its own stand according to its product category.
