There are five production plants, three of which are in Italy, one in the Republic of San Marino and one in India. The origins of the Group date back to the 1980’s when ROBOPAC, a small artisan company, started production of the Robot, an innovative idea which would later be patented all over the world: this was a robot equipped with rechargeable batteries and a feeler, which turned autonomously around pallets of any size, applying stretch film to stabilize the load.

Soon the company became known as a world leader in semi-automatic machines for the application of stretch film for stabilizing pallet loads, developing a number of other machines to join the Robot including: rotating tables, horizontal wrapping machines for elongated products, a range of shrink film packaging machines and taping machines.

ROBOPAC SISTEMI was established in 1987. This company started producing automatic systems and machines for stabilizing pallet loads with stretch film capable of catering for up to 100 pallets per hour, going on to become a leader in the sector on a global scale thanks to a range of high-tech products with excellent levels of productivity.

The idea was to create a group, leader in the sector, able to supply the customer all the more complete packaging solutions, and in 1989 this led to the takeover of DIMAC, company already existing since ten years. This Business unit produces and sells a vast range of shrink film bundlers and high and medium-speed cartoning machines, mainly for the food and beverages sector.In 1997 ROBOPAC was awarded by Cermet the ISO 9001/94 certification for its Quality System.

In 2003 ROBOPAC SISTEMI received from TÜV ITALIA the acknowledgement for the adequateness of its organization to the UNI EN ISO 9001:2000 standards.
