Cariba turns 40

40 years in business is a very important milestone, the result of a company journey that has always been focused to innovation and well-established expertise.

A little of Cariba history

Our company was founded in the heart of the packaging valley of Emilia Romagna, the ideal industrial area for manufacturing high-tech packaging machines. Initially, the activity was mainly handcrafted, aimed at assembling machines for third parties.

The experience gained over the years, combined with a desire for growth, allowed us to start designing and manufacturing our own automatic machines.

Targeted solutions for various packaging sectors and products. The compact and highly flexible design becomes the hallmark of Cariba machines. A versatility that has enabled us over time to play an important role in various product sectors, particularly in the pharmaceutical sector.
Thanks to a company vision focused on technological progress and constant expansion of production and organisational areas, we have been able to expand our market worldwide.

Cariba increases internationality

2023 will be a year full of opportunities to strengthen existing business relationships and create new partnerships.
We are already organising numerous participations in trade fairs and events in the packaging sector, to show our high-quality and reliable products to a wider audience.
In the same way that our end-of-line machines integrate with other packaging machines, we want business relationships to be consolidated and integrated to achieve further results.

2023 the fortieth

The results we have achieved and the fine milestone of our fortieth anniversary, which falls this year, inspires us to face the future with particular enthusiasm and the desire to grow further.
Special thanks go to our technicians, collaborators and partners, who are a fundamental part of our success to date.

A satisfying year full of innovation

2022 proved to be a year dedicated to technological innovation and a strengthening of our activities.
During these months, we have made numerous implementations to the company, both from a technical-management perspective and in terms of human resources.
Specifically, we have expanded the production area and the other areas of design, validation, and implementation of testing, onsite and remotely, have been strengthened.
C442, our latest forming/closing machine model has been optimized, we have increased the production of complete lines especially for pharmaceutical packaging.
We have also increased the number of our employees for higher  productivity and improved after-sales service to customers.

Cariba increasingly international in 2023

The new year will begin with a company perspective geared more toward business relationships.
As much as two-thirds of our production is addressed to a foreign clientele, and the sales network has long since achieved global expansion.
An excellent context also achieved thanks to the versatility of Cariba machines, operating in different areas and for multiple sectors.

The world of packaging is constantly evolving and we are already preparing for the next highly anticipated Interpack 2023 in Dusseldorf.
