In the 80s MACSA gradually left the rubber stamp business, changing its focus towards providing solutions to the increasingly sophisticated and complex problems faced by clients wanting industrial marking. The growing interest of companies in satisfying end customers resulted in a need to mark all packaged goods, especially those in the food industry. This challenge also included the requirement to meet international regulations and maintain the highest standards of technological innovation. MACSA anticipated companies’ needs, creating a unique product that would satisfy them.
MACSA is a company that provides solutions to its customers’ coding, identification and traceability needs. It brings together different technologies in hardware and software, services, consumables and other supplies for manufacturing companies in such diverse sectors as the food, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, automotion and electronics.
