The Marchesini Group has finalised the acquisitions of two new companies to boost the Group’s strategy of rapid expansion. The first company acquired is Axomatic in Settimo Milanese (Milan), a “Made in Italy” excellence in the packaging machinery sector, specialised in automatic equipment for the cosmetics industry, as well as pharmaceuticals and food. Alongside Dumek, already part of Marchesini (since 2017), Axomatic – thanks to thirty years of expertise and a major portfolio of multinational customers – will further contribute to consolidating the cosmetics sector of Marchesini which is essential for the Group’s growth strategy.
The second business to be acquired is V2engineering in Zola Predosa (Bologna), 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.
Both companies will be taken over with majority shares without however changing their production processes or reference partners. They will continue to manage their customers, projects and products self-sufficiently according to consolidated internal dynamics while Marchesini will be a majority shareholder and will monitor and supervise Axomatic and V2engineering’s organisation and commercial activities.
The two new companies will keep their existing well-established corporate structures and continue to satisfy the requirements of cosmetic customers rapidly, efficiently and flexibly.
“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”.
