VPK Group expands its presence in Italy with latest JV

VPK Group has confirmed it has formed a joint venture with IEMME srl, an Italian corrugated packaging company based in Gambolò, near Milan.

With this second step in Italy, VPK Group further diversifies its product portfolio and strengthens its local presence.

IEMME is a leading producer of corrugated packaging and sheets in Italy. The company relies on solid foundations resulting from a historical collaboration between two families. Just like VPK, IEMME srl is built on strong family-oriented values with focus on the future and continuous innovation.

In 2023, IEMME produced 70 million sqm of board, employed 100 people and generated a revenue of €40m. The company’s vision emphasises continuous innovation and product diversification, in line with market trends and the evolution of automated canning production systems.

Going forward, VPK will join the company’s capital and join forces to further lead and develop the organisation, respecting local values, entrepreneurial spirit and sound management practices. The partnership with IEMME enables VPK to offer a diverse range of sustainable paper-based packaging solutions in Italy, including printed Fanfold, digitally printed packaging, American and die-cut boxes and sheet board, tailored to the needs of customers in different sectors.

Andrea Toso of IEMME said, “We are honoured to welcome VPK as an ideal partner in IEMME, alongside our family. This partnership will allow us to face future challenges with determination and efficiency.”
