Robopac USA, Duluth, Ga., and Sotemapack, Italy, joined forces to broaden the range of solutions available to international customers.

Sotemapack brings 30 years of experience, business history and research activities, ranging from packaging material analysis to construction of the solution best tailored to the customer's specific needs.

Sotemapack operates a production facility in Anzola dell'Emilia, Bologna.

"Once again, with the arrival of Sotemapack, two families have come together on the basis of shared values, as without common values, ​​a joint venture is impossible,” says Enrico and Valentina Aureli, managing directors of Robopac. “We have gained control through the acquisition of majority shares in the company, but we will be counting on our new partner company, whose members will remain with us and whose contribution will be vital in terms of technology and commercial innovation."

Sotemapack’s know-how and engineering capabilities will enable Robopac to supply a range of all-inclusive end-of-line solutions. Sotemapack’s wrap-around packers and bundling machines are in synergy with Robopac’s packers.
