Sidel acquires Makro to expand offering in labelling machines

French blow moulding machinery maker Sidel Group says it has expanded its offering in labelling technologies and broadened its reach in key market segments with its acquisition of Italian labelling machinery maker Makro Labelling. Terms were not disclosed.

Makro Labelling is a modular labelling machine company that was founded in 2009 by five partners who are still forerunners in the company today and bring 30 years of experience to the table.

Makro's machines can label up to five items per bottle in cold glue, hot glue, self-adhesive, and combination versions. Sidel’s pairing with Makro, a company which has grown rapidly with worldwide reach, offers a key opportunity for both parties. The company is based in Goito (Mantova, Italy) and employs over 120 people.

According to Monica Gimre, CEO/President at Sidel, the company will be able to broaden its reach in markets such as wine, spirits, food, home and personal care.

She added, “The low and medium-speed modular labelling machines made by Makro will complement our leading higher-speed technologies that are manufactured in our factory in Mantova, Italy, and integrated into Sidel’s packaging lines.”

Sidel has been developing labelling solutions for the past 40 years. It is present in Mantova with its own labelling plant where it has advanced its labelling technologies, reaching speeds of 90,000 containers/hour, that are integrated into Sidel’s complete lines and Super Combi series.

“Joining forces with Sidel is an opportunity for further development and growth for Makro Labelling. After the acquisition, Makro will maintain its full autonomy as a unit of the Sidel Group and will continue to operate independently from its current headquarters. At the same time, we will be able to leverage and develop interesting synergies, exchange best practices, and offer an even richer experience for our employees and a broader portfolio to our customers. We are excited to embark on this new chapter of our adventure,” said Simone Marcantoni, Managing Director at Makro Labelling.
