About four years ago, Ocrim took over FBC, a long-established company based in Medesano (Parma, Italy). The business has been manufacturing end-of-line systems since 1980, specialising in palletising and packaging in bags, bundles and other forms of packaging.
The creation of this business unit has produced some tangible results, exceeding initial expectations, it has provided an important link in an industrial supply chain that was already well integrated, with every process in the factory insourced, ensuring traceable, checked and certified Italian-made products. There has been a steady increase in orders every year, thanks to the reputation that both these Italian companies, Ocrim and FBC, already enjoy in the industrial world, but above all thanks to their engineering skills and long experience in the field.
Various customised systems have been produced and installed for customers over recent years, designed to meet a wide range of needs. For example, end-of-line systems were developed for Molinos de Costa Rica and Harinero Sula projects which involved very careful planning and the use of tailor-made solutions, due to the complex nature of their systems.
Another project with particular significance was the design of a system for Molino Pasini, a milling company based in Cesole (Mantua, Italy). It involved a robotic palletising system for flour and bread-making mixes in 1 kg and ½ kg bundles. As the system is highly technological and completely automated, it is open to significant upgrades in the future. Molino Pasini chose Ocrim-FBC for this ambitious project because both companies share the same vision with regard to Italian design and production.
Many other projects have already been completed, while others are on-going and in production. All this underlines the importance of having the foresight to invest Today for a healthy, safe Tomorrow.
