The Bacciottini Group was established following the splitting off of a business unit of Bacciottini F.lli Srl. The parent company was established in 1973, and starting from 1994 it began to produce its ROL 70 and ROL 110 creasing perforating machines: a series of rotary creasing machines designed specifically for the graphic arts and for the large-scale bookbinding establishments. Following its successful presence at major international trade fairs (Drupa, Ipex and Grafitalia), the entire market became aware of the company and its products.
In 2002, the company witnessed another important development: having realized the need to design a machine that is both easy-to-use, quick starting, and yet precise and heavy duty, Bacciottini Group created its Pit Stop range. The progressive consolidation of the company’s operations resulted in a need for new targets and partners: Bacciottini Group developed new products for the constantly growing digital market, thus broadening the group’s sphere of activity in an increasingly competitive world.
In 2010, Bacciottini Group presented its first folding machine that is able to fold material till 600 g.s.m. Further studies brought to the development in 2012 of a folding unit called Butterfly Easy 2 Fold, with two parallel folds performed by special knife units that allow sheets up to 450 g.s.m to be folded without distortion and cracking. Endowed by a width of 50 cm, this machine is one of a kind on the market. In the summer of 2021 Bacciottini Group launched on the market the new machine OXO Multiskill, a combined creasing and folding machine which is the result of a fusion using operating and quality concepts from the hugely successful Pit Stop creasing and perforating machines and Butterfly folding unit.
Today Bacciottini Group products are sold worldwide thanks to a network of dealers and to the stipulation of a large number of partnerships. To date the company has sold thousands of machines worldwide. As a result of this success, the company has grown and expanded its production spaces in a new location. It is an environment with wide and modern areas and a show-room with laboratory dedicated to customers where the company moved at the end of May 2021.
