B+L Proud to Supply The Concetti Group
Specialising in manufacturing weighing, bagging, closing and palletising machinery for bulk products, the Italian, family-owned, globally-active Concetti Group was founded in 1918 in Perugia. Today, it achieves an annual turnover of EUR25million and employs over 150 people, with 25 sales representatives worldwide and an 11,200m2 manufacturing and head office facility. A dedicated facility in Atlanta, Georgia for Concetti North America offers a hub for sales, manufacturing and after sales across the territory.
As the world leader in manufacturing and supplying packaging machinery for industrial applications across a broad range of sectors including food, chemical, animal feed and petrochemicals, Concetti is committed to using technology and automation to deliver innovative solutions for bulk product packaging. Managing director Dr Riccardo Concetti is justifiably proud of the company that bears his family name. He told Packaging Europe how the group maintains high quality standards across every aspect of its activities in order to uphold its market-leading position. He said, “All of the companies that come together to become the Concetti Group rely on highly qualified and accomplished staff, with specialists in each of our active fields including mechanical, pneumatic, electric and electronic. We have the most modern technical departments equipped with the very latest advancedcalculation and design instruments. All this allows us to offer a wide range of services to our customers worldwide – our full turn-key service for packaging machinery installations is what has built our reputation for excellence.”
The main industrial applications for Concetti’s machines are cereals and seeds, fertilisers, flours, milk powder, cat litter and building materials. Dr Concetti added, “We have an especially strong brand name in the pet food industry worldwide, with our particular style of machine for the retail market being our best seller.”
The broad portfolio from Concetti offers a range of machinery including weighing systems, FFS(form-fill-seal) systems, open-mouth bagging machines, Big bag (Jumbo bag) filling systems and palletising systems. It is also the leading name in ‘dry as a bone’ rainproof packaging, which is particularly suited to products commonly stored outside such as building materials.
Concetti’s latest product is the Forza 2600 bagging machine, so-called because it can fill 2600 25kg bags in an hour. Launched at this year’s Interpack trade exhibition, the Forza 2600 has already enjoyed an enthusiastic response from customers. Dr Concetti added, “The Forza 2600 is our new force speeds bagging machine. While the technology used is well established in the industry, the innovation we’ve integrated is the impressive speed, allowing the Forza to fill 2600 25 kg bags every hour, making it ideally suited to high-production rate industries like petrochemicals.”
All Concetti’s activities in Italy are conducted from one site, and Dr Concetti is clear that this gives customers many benefits. “Our state-of-the-art facilities allow us to provide a complete design and manufacturing solution, including assembly, testing, installation on-site and the all-important after sales. As everything is in one place, we can give complete assurance that we control all facets of the production process. All of the know-how and technology is Concetti-owned – we don’t subcontract anything. We have a deep overview of every aspect of the business and our workers are totally involved in the customer process. It’s a winning combination.”
Concetti is also committed to meeting the very high hygiene standards that are in place across each of its active markets. This dedication to the latest norms and standards, particularly in the food ingredients sector, is an important element of the company’s strategy going forward.
Already an established brand name for bulk packaging machines in Europe, Asia, North America, Australia and New Zealand, Concetti is keen to continue its impressive growth in the coming years. It is focused on further boosting its brand awareness in countries where it is already present as well as penetrating new markets. This two-fold growth strategy has been carefully mapped out by the company, with its network of sales managers and agents poised to understand the specific needs of customers and potential customers.
Dr Concetti said, “We work with middle-sized companies across the world who require bagging solutions for industrial applications – whatever their industry. Concetti manufactures tailored solutions; like a bespoke suit that must fit perfectly, so too must we meet with our customers to understand their precise measurements so that we can utilise our famous Concetti know-how to design, build and integrate a packaging solution that is their perfect fit.”
