SIC Marking (Pittsburgh, PA) acquired Zaniboni s.r.l (Carpenedolo, Italy), an expert in tailor-made laser marking and traceability systems established in 1977 and located near Turin. SIC Zaniboni is the new name for the company. Zaniboni specializes in design, manufacture and sale of customized marking and laser traceability solutions for the automotive and mechanical sectors. As early as 1994 they began introducing laser technology into their marking and traceability solutions, becoming a pioneer in the integration of the technology. In over 40 years, they have succeeded in establishing strategic partnerships with international groups such as SKF, for which it has delivered several hundred systems around the world.
“We are very satisfied with this new acquisition. It will allow us to strengthen our position not only in Italy, where we will now have around 30 people, but also in several key accounts and internationally. I must say that we were very impressed by the Zaniboni team’s know-how,” said Jean-Manuel Pauchet, the general manager at SIC Marking. “We are now looking forward to starting our collaboration to be able to propose new offers and services to our Italian customers and then to the world.”
Mr. Zaniboni, the chief executive officer at SIC Zaniboni, stated, “In order to ensure our future growth, it was essential for us to join an international group specialized in marking and industrial traceability and was complementary in terms of offer. The choice of SIC Marking seemed obvious to us. What attracted us was their capacity for innovation, their customer-centric culture, the wide services portfolio, and finally their international footprint. The fact that the company has gone for growth for several years has also been a factor of decision because it is not the result of chance and is obviously due to talented people.”
