In 1976 IMA started manufacturing automatic machines for the packaging of pharmaceutical products by launching the first monobloc blister packaging machine.
Today IMA Safe Division benefits from this valuable heritage together with the experience of the former IMA Packaging Division and other group companies operating in primary and secondary packaging.
