The companies said the focus of the operation is the development of a new range of combined and integrated packaging machines, that will be offered in combination with high-quality packaging materials, as well as comprehensive technical support and spare parts services, all from a single source.
“Groundbreaking solutions” will amount to, for example, hybrid stretch wrappers based on the use of recyclable monomaterial films, all produced by Fabbri Group. Bizerba will complement the packaging machine based on stretch film wrapping technology with solutions for slicing, weighing, labelling, and cashing activities that can be seamlessly combined.
Stefano Pellegatta, CEO of Fabbri Group, is excited about the partnership and described Bizerba, as an “outstanding” partner who is a “perfect fit” with a strong presence in the retail world.
“After intensive discussions and a great initial exchange, we can now move on to the operational part to soon provide retailers worldwide with real added value through our joint solutions,” Pellegatta said.
Andreas W. Kraut, CEO & shareholder of Bizerba, said the collaboration with Fabbri Group is a step in the direction of minimising the effort required for data maintenance by retailers and enable seamless integration of retail systems and packaging solutions.
The first joint solutions will be available in select countries in Autumn 2023. The official launch in the Italian and European markets will take place during the Cibus Tec trade show, which will be held in Parma (Italy) at the end of October 2023.
