Created by Mario Cavanna's intuition in 1960, for many years, Cavanna S.p.A. has been developing flowpack packaging technology for the major Italian companies in the farm&food sector and has grown rapidly due to the diffusion of large-scale distributors. Progressively the range of solutions has been expanding to both upstream and downstream processes from flow wrapper, thanks to cooperation with important Italian groups.
Since 2001, the second generation enters fully into the business management of the company: Riccardo and Alessandra Cavanna both fill the role of Chief Executive Officer. Today, thanks to a continuous process of customer satisfaction and strategic growth, Cavanna has four production units: the headquarter in Prato Sesia (Italy), one plant in Embu (Sao Paulo) in Brazil, the company Synchrosys of Mappano (Italy) and the new plant of Cavanna Packaging USA Inc. in Duluth, GA (USA). Through these four production sites the group designs and manufactures packaging flowpack, autoloaders, transport systems and buffering, secondary packaging solutions such as multipack packaging for multiple units.
Currently, Cavanna has installed worldwide including over 5,000 full-line and single machines and has more than 900 customers around the world. Strengths of the group are: expertise gained in 54 years of history, continuous and constant assistance to the customer and a DNA strongly oriented to research and technological and business innovation ideas.
A family company, a Worldwide partner.
SYNCHROSYS is an idea that was born in Turin in 1995 by three technicians and since then it has been present in the market to offer machines and custom-made lines for the food industry. Each enquiry is always welcome in Synchrosys, because it increases the know-how and enables the company to compete with global competitors. The passion at Synchrosys is rewarded through the Customers' trust and allowed Synchrosys to be incorporated into the Cavanna Group on 1st August 2010.
In the past, Synchrosys and Cavanna were sometimes competitors on the same projects, now they collaborate as partners. The Synchrosys staff over time acquired experience that allowed the Group to establish new targets of food packing machines and to expand into new markets such as rusks, bread, frozen food, preformed potato chips in addition to the development of special equipment for Cavanna custom-made systems (dynamic buffers, sanitary-designed equipment, raw distribution systems). The new primary goal of the Group is to make both brands stronger at providing turn-key solutions to the food industry.
Cavanna S.p.A. since its birth has shown a strong commitment to the export of its packaging machines: in the Latin America market the name Cavanna has considerable prestige and above all, in the panorama of Brazilian food packaging Cavanna's horizontal flow wrappers are present in most of the major food companies. Cavanna Ltda, the Brazilian subsidiary was established in January 2004 in Embu which is in the industrial area of Sau Paulo, where there is a production and service department.
With this production plant Cavanna can incorporate the needs of the local market in offering solutions customized to the needs of the customer. This is supported from the Italian headquarter which has 54 years of experience and history and makes available to this branch all the necessary knowledge to provide effective continuity on the quality of products. This important technological know-how is transferred to Cavanna Ltda, in order to ensure that the Brazilian product has the same innovation technology, the same features and the same quality which is typically Italian.
Cavanna Ltda operates in two divisions, "food" and "non food": offering a range of solutions from confectionery and bakery to the pharmaceutical and cosmetic industries.
Tecnologia italiana fabricada no Brasil! With this slogan Cavanna approaches the Brazilian market at the same time as confirming its presence of twenty years not only building packaging machines, but also as an ideal partner to help customers to solve all the existing problems of packaging.
Dynamic systems and new technologies for food packaging machines related to the scientific attention on emerging needs of product for longer shelf life help to improve the performance of the packaging of the food industry and thus increase the importance of the brand of the client.
