Company profile

Rossini SpA is world leader in the manufacture of roto and flexo sleeves.
The Rescaldina offices, just outside Milan, are the headquarters of an extensive network including 8 production sites and 4 sales offices in different parts of the world. The company was established in 1928 from an intuition of Erminio Rossini, who started the first small workshop producing inking rollers for printing presses.
Since then the company has travelled a path of constant development, marked by the passage from the original workshop to a full-fledged production site in Milan. From the 1950’s until today, Rossini has been consolidating a network which today include sites in Rescaldina (Milan), Uboldo (Varese), L’Aquila, Atlanta (USA), Barcelona (Spain), Sao Paulo (Brazil), Timisoara (Romania) and Pune (India), all connected by an efficient intercontinental distribution system and common software platfom.
The R&D department plays a central role in designing and testing new products and materials, often destined to set the standard in the industry. Rossini is a strongly innovative company, as testified by the many market-leading patents and the latest product development into the carbon fiber production with mandrels and rollers not only for the printing industry.
The company also includes a Global Customer Satisfaction center, the point of departure and arrival for our customer service department which connects clients directly to the most qualified person to take care of their needs.


“Creativity, innovating spirit and international scope are the values Rossini SpA has always been inspired by in designing its products.”
