TMCI PADOVAN is a historic Italian company, based in Italy’s North-East area (near Treviso), leader since 1919 in food and beverage technology sectors worldwide. The company’s evolutionary path has oriented its business towards alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages.
The first sector in which TMCI has specialized is the oenological one, up to becoming the reference point for many wineries throughout Italy and around the world. Padovan division is still a cornerstone today, but it is not limited to providing machinery for the wine process: distillates, oils, vinegars, ciders, carbohydrates, industrial filtration and much more.
Filters, pasteurizers, cleaning systems, refrigeration or heat exchange systems: the range offered by Padovan is varied and custom made.
In 1985, TMCI decided to expand by acquiring an English company called Chemtech International.
Based in Theale, Chemtech is now the business unit specialized in the production of machineries for gelatine, margarine, cocoa butter, oils and fats and products for pastry and bakery.
The products that characterize this division are certainly the scraped surface exchangers (Chemetator), but no less important are the deodorizers, pilot plants, process tanks, pasteurizers, and much more.
Another end-product on which TMCI wanted to focus is beer, both craft and industrial. Starting with single machines (filters and pasteurizers) it gradually built its reputation, which was undoubtedly strengthened when the VELO brand was acquired in 2014. In 2018, the team multiplied, thanks to the acquisition of the Vicenza-based company Impiantinox; from that moment Easybräu-Velo brand is the undisputed protagonist in the brewing market.
The range of products offered is vast: brewhouses from 1 to 100 hl, auxiliary accessories (dry hop, yeast propagators, etc.), fermentation and maturation tanks, cleaning systems (CIP), and filters and pasteurizers for the industrial world.
When it comes to non-alcoholic beverages, such as soft drinks, fruit juices, energy drinks, nectars and fruit concentrates and puree, syrups, flavoured and non-flavoured waters, milk and derivatives, and slightly alcoholic drinks such as hard seltzer, kombucha, fruit cocktails, alcopops and various, the SAP-Blendtech division comes into play. Like the other divisions, SAP-Blendtech designs and creates customized solutions according to the customer’s needs.
The heart of the division is certainly the syrup room, which follows the product in the entire process phases: sugar dissolution, which can be continuous or discontinuous, syrup clarification treatment, dosage of micro-components and aromas, preparation of the final syrup and realization of the finished product.
To complete the range of SAP-Blendtech products we have filters, tunnel and in-line pasteurizers (plate or tubular), evaporators, desulfurizers, CIP, aseptic lines and machinery for blending and mixing, such as premix, carbonators, mixers-pasto-carbo and much more.
In 2021, TMCI Padovan acquired SAP Italia, a world leader in food plants based in Melegnano (MI) and which since 1983 has offered technological solutions in the construction of plants for the food industry, and more precisely in the water sectors, fruit juices, soft drinks, dairy sector, ice cream and much more.
Thanks to the new synergy created between the two companies, TMCI enriched the range of existing products, and significantly broaden the range of action.
TMCI Padovan company is present all over the world, with four production sites in Italy and many offices scattered around the four corners of the earth.
The company’s strengths, across the four divisions, are certainly:
• The speed of reaction at the time of the first contact with the customer,
• The ability, thanks to the preparation of its technical department, to identify customer needs and produce the offer that best suits the needs of the individual,
• Versatility, which allows TMCI to provide customized products,
• The possibility of offering semi or fully automatic machines, thanks to a dedicated automation office,
• The speed of analysis, response and intervention of its after-sales office, which accompanies the customer in every necessary step.
