Sidel purchases Makro Labelling

Feb. 9, 2023
The company expects the acquisition to boost its labeling expertise and provide its customers even greater flexibility.

The Sidel Group announced it is expanding its labeling technologies with the purchase of Makro Labelling Srl, a leader in the field.

With headquarters in Octeville sur Mer, France, Sidel has been developing labeling solutions for 40 years, with a labeling plant in Mantua, Italy, where it produces labeling technologies reaching speeds of 90,000 containers per hour. Founded in 2009 and headquartered in Goito, Italy, Makro Labelling produces modular labeling machines. It employs over 120 people.

“We are excited to be able to offer enriched labeling expertise and even greater flexibility to our customers, strengthening our position in labeling solutions,” Sidel CEO and President Monica Gimre said. “The low- and medium-speed modular labeling machines made by Makro will complement our leading higher-speed technologies that are manufactured in our factory in Mantua, Italy, and integrated into Sidel’s packaging lines. We extend a very warm welcome to all Makro Labelling employees now joining the Sidel Group.” 

“Joining forces with Sidel is an opportunity for further development and growth for Makro Labelling,” said Simone Marcantoni, managing director at 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.”
