Beverage: the future is PET.

A Business Unit dedicated to PET pre-forms.

The Sacmi Group believes that PET - the plastic that has conquered beverage markets all over the world – is going to be even bigger business in the future and has thus created an all-new PET business unit within the Beverage & Packaging division. The goal: to coordinate and maximise Group synergy as regards the production and sale of machines and complete plants for the production of PET pre-forms. Forecasts predicting high growth in PET consumption - and the widening of its application range - have led Sacmi to focus significant resources on this technologically and ecologically advanced. material. Following the acquisition of Negri Bossi, of which Oima and Bm Biraghi are a part, Sacmi is, today, the only Group in the world able to offer all three plastic moulding technologies: injection, compression and thermo-forming. Moreover, with Sacmi Filling and Sacmi Labelling, the Group can supply the entire system, providing complete lines for the production and filling of PET containers. From an organisational standpoint, the new PET business unit can count on the technical and commercial resources of Sacmi Imola and the Negri Bossi group. The beverage industry is particularly optimistic about opportunities in emerging economies where production has only recently switched from glass to plastic. Compared to glass and other materials, PET offers a wider range of design solutions and is both lighter and tougher. PET also has the advantage of being perfectly transparent, complying in full with food preservation standards and being easier to shape and recycle.
