PRATI announces it has founded PRATI AUTOMATION. The new company will manage the sales & services operations of the full range of PRATI machines in the label and converting industry in US and Canada. PRATI AUTOMATION will make its public debut at Labelexpo Americas.
“We are thrilled about our new partnership. PRATI & PRATI AUTOMATION share the same values. We both wish to satisfy our customer needs through improved efficiency and by providing top-class quality,” says Glen Morris, Managing Partner. “PRATI has an excellent reputation for qualitative and innovative machines. I am convinced that they offer the best machines in their application segment.”
PRATI AUTOMATION, located in the area of South Indiana, closed to Louisville, Kentucky, plans to run a demo and service centre. It can rely on a team of dedicated service engineers, who will be able to provide to customers in North America; the level of support for which PRATI is famous.
“We already have four installations in North America of a VEGAplus BOOKLET converting line, a JUPITER inspection machine, a SATURN inspection machine with 100% security and another SATURN equipped with inkjet print head for overprinting of variable data. Customers are appreciating the variety of solutions we can offer in the end-line process of label production and the versatility of our systems. Hence we see new market opportunities," says Chiara Prati, Sales Director at PRATI. "The new company will certainly help us achieve our long-term goals of growth in all markets.”

With its more than thirty years of experience, PRATI has developed a reputation as a trustworthy manufacturer of extremely reliable systems, which are tailored to customers’ needs and form a solid foundation that offers mechanical and electronic precision.
The company’s product range incorporates versatile-use solutions which contribute to increased productivity at a low cost. These include the JUPITER und SATURN inspection tables, the modular and customer-specifically adjustable VEGAplus platforms, the PHARMACHECK finishing system, which is tailored specially to the needs of the pharmaceutical industry, and URANUS for overprinting and verifying data.
