P.E. Labellers has made labeling history throughout the world, thanks to its ability to adapt labelling machines to the new production requirements of companies and to the increasingly high-quality standards imposed by the market. It was founded in 1974 in Mantua (Italy) and for almost 50 years P.E. Labellers has shown continuous growth in the global market.
The company is now a world leader in the design and manufacture of automatic and fully modular labeling machines featuring superior standards.
P.E. Labellers is an Italian company that boasts 100% Made-in-Italy production, with 95% of its revenues developed on international markets. Over the years the size of the company has steadily increased and extended globally: Today P.E. Labellers consists of 9 sites distributed between Italy, US and Brazil, with about 500 employees, 90 service experts out of which are present worldwide.
Since 2017, P.E. Labellers has been part of the US multinational group ProMach, a world leader in Packaging.
P.E. Labellers has been able to grow over the years and to position itself among the market leaders in the design and production of automatic labelling machines, thanks to its ability to adapt labelling solutions to the new production requirements of companies and to the increasingly higher quality standards imposed by the market. How? Always prioritizing customers. Listening to them, visiting them, studying their different production needs, interpreting their business targets. This is how, year after year, the requirements expressed by companies have become P.E.’s technological asset.
The key point is flexibility: The extreme modularity that P.E. machines bring to the field, to the advantage of companies of even very different sizes and markets. Whatever the production needs to be satisfied, the proposed automated solution can combine the different labeling technologies, starting from a central machine body and adding modular stations of various types. From pressure sensitive to cold glue, from pre-cuts with hot melt to combined labeling solutions.
P.E. plays ahead of the needs of companies by offering Design Innovation smart solutions, with the strength of 62 patents filed.
The driver is always the customer’s production requirement to be met, the speed to be achieved and the types of “clothing” with which to “dress” – and give value to – products and containers that differ in material, features and size.
As always, you need to protect what’s most precious: the ability to provide specialized services for each type of machine, in every geographical area, relying on a team of 90 technical profiles, globally distributed, represents a highly valuable feature. It means being able to count on non-stop assistance, even remotely, on specific and evolutionary maintenance programs, dedicated training, at the customer’s premises or in the equipped classrooms of P.E. University.
P.E. Labellers modular machines meet the needs of many sectors: Beverage, Food & Dairy, Wine & Spirits, Personal & Home Care, Chemical, Pharmaceutical, Pet Food.
The manufacturing strategy adopted by P.E. Labellers is based on the concept of “Vertical Production”, which has led to the creation of 8 different Centers of Excellence in Design & Manufacturing. Its globally distributed production sites are highly specialized in the development of special lines of automatic labelling machines, operating independently while remaining strongly integrated into P.E. Labellers.
Today, the Lean Production of the P.E. Labellers group leads to the creation of 7 lines of labelling machines and 500 machines produced every year, exported all over the world and largely managed remotely. All machine components are processed in an automated way and each part is mass-produced to ensure high quality control and strong reduction of material waste.
Endless passion for innovation
P.E. puts another flag in the labeling world and launches the revolutionary Simpl-Cut™ technology, which changes the rules of Roll-fed operation, worldwide
SIMPL-CUT™ by P.E. Labellers won the coveted PMMI’s Technology Excellence Award at the Pack Expo in Las Vegas, the world’s most important packaging fair. Winner of the most innovative solution in the General Packaging category.
Why is P.E. different?
Strength is in flexibility. It’s a fundamental concept that winks at evolutionary principles themselves. It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent, but rather the one most adaptable to change, Darwin teaches us. P.E. LABELLERS has built its leadership on this key element and the market continues to prove it right. For 50 years.
