MG America, the US subsidiary of MG2 of Bologna, Italy and a supplier of processing and packaging equipment, is forming a strategic alliance with prominent life sciences equipment provider Romaco North America to cross-promote and sell complementary production machinery. The agreement synergizes machinery offerings from two members of the pharma equipment industry, allowing each to offer a greater range of solutions to their respective customer bases.

Among other benefits, customers of both MG America and Romaco North America will see enhanced equipment servicing options; combined, the two companies can deploy more than a dozen field service technicians in various geographies throughout the US and Canada. Each company is also able to leverage the other’s industry reputation, while offering a wider range of precision-crafted equipment.

“Teaming up with our friends at Romaco provides an immediate, turnkey array of solutions that align with and supplement our own equipment portfolio,” notes Claudio Radossi, president of MG America. “Synergistic relationships are designed to make all parties stronger, and this agreement certainly accomplishes that—not only for Romaco and MG America but for our growing, evolving customer bases.”

The alliance largely focuses on complementary solutions. For example, MG America will now be offering its customers several packaging platforms from Romaco, including popular cartoners such as the Promatic P 91 intermittent motion and Promatic PC 4200 continuous motion models. On the processing side, MG America will also be showcasing Romaco’s Kilian series of tablet presses, along with a variety of sophisticated coating and granulation equipment.

Under this new partnership, Romaco will highlight MG America’s full line of capsule filling machinery, including the recently introduced Essentia, a unit that’s reportedly suitable for medium to large-batch manufacturing that offers minimal production floorspace allocation, simple cleaning, and simplified maintenance. Romaco will also be able to sell a range of MG America packaging equipment, including case packers, tray formers, sachet machines, and palletizers.

“Combining our strengths allows each company not only to expand its portfolio with proven, highly regarded solutions, but also grow the resources we have in the sales and servicing field,” says Sabri Demirel, managing director for Romaco North America. “This alliance takes two companies with decades in the market and strong name recognition and makes them even more attractive to pharma manufacturers and other customers.”
