Founded in 1979, today UNIFILL is a leading company in the design and production of high-tech automated machines for primary packaging, for filling liquid and semi-dense products in single-dose packages for the food and non-food industry.
In over 40 years, we have installed almost 500 machines and developed a commercial network covering more than 52 countries. UNIFILL has its headquarters in the province of Modena, in the heart of the Packaging Valley, and has sales offices in the USA, Germany and China. That is why they like to be called a “pocketsized multinational”.
Technology, assistance and network for an innovative and winning business model.
The Italian and European packaging industry should adopt a “collaborative” business approach to face foreign markets.
The challenge with China and the USA, leaders in manufacturing and high-tech, pushes us to raise the level of competitiveness to meet market demands in terms of product quality and reliability. UNIFILL, as an Italian company, can boast an important tradition.
The “myth” of Made in Italy is still alive, but it must be fed by constant research as it risks becoming a legend for posterity. We shouldn’t underestimate our foreign competitors. Since we are not the only ones making quality products, we must optimise our business models as much as possible and constantly invest in research to make reliable, quality, high-performance and competitive products, also by learning to “teamup”. We believe that the best business model is one where SMEs are urged to work together by optimising costs and enhancing sales and production networks.
I believe we are at a turning point in history.
Today it is not possible to think of a future without innovation. Digital transformations and ecological commitments are a reality, flexible ways that can represent the ultimate solution in every field, including packaging. I’m thinking of UNIFILL Suite, a digital services platform designed for our clients and business partners, which allows users to take advantage of eight digital-related services: realtime customer support (using augmented reality), live or catch-up conferences, chat boxes, digital inquiry forms and so on.
UNIFILL Suite is QAP (Qualification Agent Program) certified and uses blockchain technology. In terms of sustainability, it is essential to expand and strengthen our partnerships with leading suppliers in the design and production of sustainable materials. The process of studying and researching new materials cannot be carried out individually. Companies and suppliers must work together to achieve this goal. We are at a turning point in history. It is no longer a question of whether or not to adhere to particular innovation processes. The point is whether we want to be spectators or protagonists.
