EMS is the result of the merger of EMMETI Spa, the international benchmark in palletizing and depalletizing systems for the bottling and glassmaking industries in hollow glass, and its affiliates MECTRA Spa, specialising in the food, pet food and can-making fields, SIPAC Spa that handle lines and LOGIK Srl.
The choice of an important partner like Luxembourg-based investment fund XENON PRIVATE EQUITY arrives from the intention to relaunch the market presence of industrial firms, starting from a common expansion strategy supported by an ambitious plan of acquisitions.
The Group’s strengths are illustrated by the following key figures, 290 employees, revenue for more than 130 million Euros in 2018 marked by a strong export drive (75% turnover) without forgetting 25% of production destined to our Italian customers. Numbers that rank the group among the leading players in the industry, enabling it to compete at the highest levels against the toughest competition, offering a prompt response to the demands of an increasingly dynamic and demanding market.
The top managers at Emmeti-Mectra-Sipac-Logik who played a proactive part in the development of the four businesses have remained to safeguard the continuity of operations and productivity. Giovanni Ronconi (Chairman and Managing Director at Mectra), has been appointed CEO of EMS Group. He enjoys the support of Corrado Azzali (Chairman and Managing Director at Sipac), COO of EMS, and Paolo Biondi, Sales Director for the entire group. The engineers, technical team and other employees who worked at the four firms have been confirmed, assuring the full benefit of their experience and technological know-how in production.
On an international level, the industry point foresees an annual growth of 6%. Based on this outlook, EMS Group is aiming to reach and exceed a turnover worth 200 million Euros in a short term, with more than 350 collaborators and a wide and competitive product range capable of meeting the growing demand for complete lines.
