Axomatic unveils its new headquarters and focuses on the efficiency of logistics. 10 new hires announced
Axomatic, Lombard engineering firm and part of the Marchesini Group - the Bolognese multinational active in the drug and cosmetic product packaging business - has officially entered its new headquarters in Settimo Milanese (MI): an 8000 m2 site, recently built and not far from the old HQ, which hosts the machine production and assembly departments, a centralised warehouse and workshop, as well as offices and conference rooms.
The new head office of Axomatic - specialised like its parent company in packaging technologies for pharmaceutical products and the beauty sector - was developed on a single level with the goal of supporting the company’s logistics and production capacity, facilitating transfers and connections between the various departments involved in the development and manufacturing of the automatic machines sold all over the world.
More specifically, to guarantee an increasingly efficient and prompt service, Axomatic has dedicated 1000 m2 to the production of the mechanical parts used in its machines: in fact, this area houses 15 CNC (Computer Numerical Control) machining centres of extreme mechanical precision. Also part of the new site is the single centralised warehouse, over 1200 m2 in area, which stores both spare parts and the elements necessary for the composition of turbo-emulsifiers, hot melters, tube filling machines, volumetric dosing machines and filling and capping machines.
The new layout of the spaces is the result of a series of investments which, in creating modern and high-tech internal areas for the assembly of the machines, has generated a demand for new young professionals within the company. The expansion of the plant will therefore open the way to the arrival of five specialist factory workers and five mechanical and electronic design engineers at Axiomatic.
The goal is to respond even more comprehensively and quickly to the growing level of demand in the cosmetics sector which has demonstrated its resilience to the crisis generated by the pandemic. In fact, Axomatic, which joined the Marchesini Group in 2019, is located in the heart of Lombardy’s cosmetic district, home to the sector’s leading companies that together produce over 65% of the world’s make-up. This segment therefore remains key to the expansion strategies of the Marchesini Group which - following the explosion in demand for machines for the packaging of big pharma vaccines - has recently also stepped up its activities in the cosmetics area with the opening of its Beauty Division: 5000 square metres dedicated to the final testing of Axomatic solutions but also those of the Marchesini Group Beauty, Cosmatic, Dumek and V2 engineering brands.
