The second business to be acquired is V2engineering in Zola Predosa (Bologna, Italy), which specialises in producing cartoning machines. The V2engineering machines combine renowned Italian manufacturing know-how and advanced technologies and will further enrich Machersini’s offer for the so-called “end-of-line” products, another key aspect in the cosmetics and pharmaceuticals production chain. “We continue to grow and we can’t stop here” remarked the CEO of Marchesini Group, Pietro Cassani. “With these two new acquisitions we are moving in a clear direction: that of strengthening our business even further in the cosmetic packaging sector, respecting the requirements and requests, which are often very different to those of pharmaceutical sector. To be able to do this, we are building a 9,000 square meters factory entirely dedicated to this sector”. The project took off last May and work on the new Beauty Division came to life recently when the foundations were laid for the construction of offices and production facilities. Once up and running, this division will act as a hub for the Group’s Cosmetics galaxy, which thanks to these new acquisitions, will reach a 50 million euros turnover in 2019.
