E80 Group participates in the 2022 drinktec trade fair


E80 Group presented some of its latest innovations at the 2022 edition of the drinktec trade fair in Munich from 12 to 16 September, adding a cutting-edge live show to its information toolbox.

E80 Group is an Italy-based multinational that specialises in custom-made intralogistics solutions for factories producing fast-moving consumer goods and distribution centres. Excelling at automatic picking and truck-loading solutions, over half of E80 Group’s 2021 revenue is derived from the beverage industry.

E80 Group’s live show, ‘You shape your drinks, we shape your flows’, produced using green screen technology, presented some of its many successful case studies in the beverage and liquid food industry, along with its new solution, EAGLE T.R.A.Y.S. (Tridimensional Robotic Assortment Yard System).

These technologies are designed for the integrated, automatic management of layer and case picking, carried out using cutting-edge robotic solutions and automated guided vehicles (AGVs), as well as for staging and automatic truck loading, implemented by Laser Guided Vehicles (LGVs). They are all managed and coordinated by the SM.I.LE80 (Smart Integrated Logistics) proprietary software platform.

“Drinktec is one of the most important trade shows in the world in the beverage industry,” said Enrico Grassi, president of E80 Group.

“We have been taking part in this exhibition for many years: it’s a unique opportunity for dialogue with customers and prospects from around the world. This year we are once again extremely satisfied with the results, obtained through remarkable teamwork and our patrimony of expertise, solid skills and ideas.”

“These qualities, from the 1990s onward, have allowed us to develop more than 350 smart factories, install more than 2,500 robotised systems, 6,500 AGVs/LGVs and, since 2016, 40 high-density integrated warehouses. With these impressive figures, today we are present worldwide, with 14 sites on five continents, and drinktec has been a great opportunity to reaffirm the global presence and projection of our Group,” he explained.

Drinktec is the most important trade fair for all players in the global beverage and liquid food sector and brought together industry giants on the floors of the Munich trade fair (Messe München), who shared years of expertise and innovation with the aim of cultivating a future characterised by flexibility, efficiency, safety and digital continuity.

Distributed over 150 thousand square meters of exhibition space, drinktec is divided into various sectors, hosting stands from almost every supplier in the world, with all-inclusive offer ranging from ingredients to process technology, and from PET to logistics and packaging.

In this latter category, E80 Group played a leading role in a hall dedicated to packaging, labelling, conveyance and storage technologies.

The previous edition of drinktec, which was held five years ago, welcomed 1,749 exhibitors and 76,000 visitors from across the globe, including E80 Group.

In the same five years, E80 Group has undertaken continuous growth, going from a revenue of 238 million euros in 2017 to 323 million euros in 2021, nearly reaching the 370 million euros forecast for 2022, of which half was generated in the beverage and liquid food industries.

In this market segment, the Group has many European and international customers, such as Evian, Nestlé, Perrier, Coca-Cola, Constellation Brands, Niagara, Danone, Parmalat (Lactalis Group), Acqua Sant’Anna, NFPC, and Abafoods among others.
