Bizerba, a globally leading manufacturer of weighing solutions for the industrial and retail sectors, and Fabbri Group, the renowned international specialist in automatic food packaging systems, have announced the start of a new strategic cooperation. Its goal is to provide a comprehensive solution for the weighing, pricing, packaging, and labeling processes. Both companies operate worldwide and enjoy an excellent reputation in their respective fields.
The CEOs of Bizerba and Fabbri Group, Andreas W. Kraut and Stefano Pellegatta, met at Bizerba’s headquarters to sign a partnership agreement. This takes the existing cooperation between the two companies, which has been ongoing for many years, to a new level. Together, they are developing innovative solutions for the food sector, creating real added value for retailers worldwide.
All from a single source
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.
By joining the expertise of both companies, groundbreaking solutions are being created for the food retail sector: for example, hybrid stretch wrappers based on the use of recyclable monomaterial films, all produced by Fabbri Group itself, make packaging more sustainable. Bizerba complements the packaging machine based on stretch film wrapping technology with solutions for slicing, weighing, labeling, and cashing activities that can be seamlessly combined.
Ideal partners complement each other
Stefano Pellegatta, CEO of Fabbri Group, is excited about the partnership: “With Bizerba, we have found an outstanding partner who is a perfect fit for us and already has 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.”
Andreas W. Kraut, CEO & Shareholder of Bizerba, also emphasizes the importance of the cooperation: “Bizerba aims to make processes in retail smarter and more efficient. Through the collaboration with Fabbri Group, first-class and worldwide recognized brand, we are taking another big step in this direction: we minimize 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.
