Resulting from the integration of Elettric80 and BEMA, E80 Group was founded by Enrico Grassi in 1980 in Italy, and since then, has been constantly investing in the development of intralogistics solutions that enable customers of the food sector, but also other sectors such as beverage and tissue, to respond and often anticipate the market needs. The tailor-made solutions designed by the Group allow to manage all the intralogistics activities of factories and distribution centers ensuring a significant increase in plant efficiency and the total traceability of the products handled, with positive cascading effects that improve the entire supply chain. This continuous drive for technological progress has culminated in 30 patented systems developed in 40 years of business, an achievement made possible thanks to the expertise acquired in different industrial sectors and constant investments in research and staff training. E80 Group has worldwide succeeded in completing 350 smart factories, delivering over 6,500 laser-guided vehicles, 2,500 robotic systems and since 2016, 40 automated high-density warehouses, all handled by SM.I.LE80 software platform, that guarantees the integrated and automated management of flows and systems, including those of third parties.
