Although a subsidiary of the SACMI Group, a [pounds sterling]1 billion a year Italian cooperative which is a recognised world leader in the design, manufacture and marketing of machinery and systems for a number of industrial sectors, SACMI Filling is a relatively new and unknown company in the UK bottling line market.
