Neuss and Cologne, both in North Rhine-Westphalia, are the seats of respectively our manufacturing plant and our sales branch in Germany. Our approach to the markets of automatic machines for the processing and packaging of food, pharmaceuticals, personal care, tea & coffee starts from the West.
IMA is an international Group with headquarters in Italy. Everything started in 1961 in the outskirts of Bologna (Italy) designing and manufacturing automatic tea-bag packaging machines, a sector in which IMA is now prime player.
We started out as a small local company to quickly evolve into an international Group characterized by a strong, dynamic and innovative spirit. Our constant commitment to growth led to the development of new product lines, and to expand through the acquisition of other companies.
Today, we can count on a sales network made up of branches, representative offices and more than 50 agencies active in about 80 countries.
In Germany we are present since 1987 when we inaugurated our Branch Office in Viersen, then moved to Cologne in 2001: with 30 employees we provide the sales and customer care services in the pharmaceutical, personal care, confectionery, tea and coffee markets. With the acquisition of the Oystar Group at the end of 2014, we enlarged our presence in the Country to serve the food and dairy markets, too.
