About us

Established in 1961, IMA is world leader in the design and manufacture of automatic machines for the processing and packaging of pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, food, tea and coffee, as well as in the automation of industrial processes.  

 

Its position of leadership is the result of significant investments in R&D, regular and constructive dialogue with the end-users in its sectors and the Group's ability to expand internationally, conquering new markets. Its history features a constant growth that has enabled the Group to close the year 2022 with consolidated revenue of about 2 billion euros. Exports accounted for more than 86%.

 

The Group, whose Chairman is Alberto Vacchi, has about 6,900 employees, around 58% in Italy and 42% abroad, and is present in more than 80 countries, supported by a sales network made up of 30 branches (Italy, France, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, Germany, Austria, Spain, Poland, Israel, Russia, the United States, India, China, Malaysia, Thailand and Brazil), representative offices in central-eastern Europe and more than 140 agencies.
