Marchesini Group Spa


With 9,000 machines produced and 1.100 lines installed all over the world, the Marchesini Group stands out as an international leader in the packaging business.

Founded in 1974 in Pianoro (Bologna), where the headquarters remain today, over the years the Group has expanded its sales networks: we are now present in 92 countries, with more than 44 agencies and 11 subsidiaries (United Kingdom, France, Scandinavia, Spain, Germany, Benelux, Switzerland, United States, India, the Middle East and Asia Pacific).

Marchesini's mission is to provide complete and highly profiled packaging lines: an ‘on-demand’ offer, customized and adapted to meet the needs of different customers.

Most of the Group's production — approximately 85% — is in the pharmaceutical sector, where Marchesini is an important point of reference, not only for multinationals (including GSK, Novartis, Sanofi Aventis, Wyeth, BMS, and Pfizer), but also for small and medium-sized businesses, companies working in generics and pharmaceutical contracting business.

The remaining 15% of production is in the cosmetics industry, where Marchesini offers innovative solutions for packaging cosmetic products created specifically for top level customers, such as L'Oréal, Procter&Gamble, Dior Parfum, Guerlain Paris, and Yves Saint Laurent Beauté.

Since cosmoceutic industry became one of the breakthrough business worldwide, Marchesini Group is actually heading toward new packaging-solutions sectors.
