Italy: Business Takeover Italian Lab Machine Manufacturer Dott. Bonapace Joins Marchesini Group
The Marchesini Group has acquired the Italian firm Dott. Bonapace which specializes in developing laboratory machines for R&D as well as small industrial production of consumables. With this takeover, the Group has entered into its first venture into the laboratory machinery market.
Bologna/Italy – A new Made in Italy mechanical company is joining the Marchesini Group, a Bologna-based multinational that specialises in the production of industrial lines for pharmaceutical packaging, including Covid-19 vaccines, and cosmetic products. The company, Dott. Bonapace, based in Cusano Milanino (Milan), manufactures laboratory machines used for Research and Development and small industrial production of consumables.
With this move, Marchesini Group is acquiring 70 % of the shares in Dott. Bonapace and expanding its already extensive machine park with new technologies that handle special products such as suppositories and capsules.
“We have made a number of important acquisitions in recent years, but Dott. Bonapace is our first venture into the laboratory machinery market,” commented Marchesini Group CEO Pietro Cassani. “Entering this new segment - as was the case for the high-level software segment - will allow us to further diversify our portfolio of mechanical companies and better manage the supply chain during this current period of recovery”.
