“The 2015 growth reflects our development projects aimed at maintaining the trend for the future - states Franco Stevanato, CEO of Stevanato Group. – In order to continue growing in the value chain we developed a long term Vision based on three main pillars.
We developed an internationalization strategy in order to supply the markets locally. The new production plant in Brazil is fully in line with this strategy. The groundbreaking ceremony was held last 4th February and it will be operative starting from 2017.
Moreover, we are always committed to research in terms of treatments, materials, processes, device ideation in order to guarantee our products a competitive advantage and to add value to our core business, making the product more and more innovative every time.
We also activated an acquisition process to move to the higher part of the value chain towards a fully integrated system. In the future Stevanato Group will not just offer the glass pharmaceutical container, but an integrated system for injectables. This is the main goal”.
With the aim to grow by acquisitions, at the beginning of 2016 the Group acquired the Danish SVM Automatik, specialized in assembly, packaging machines and serialization solution.
