Welcome to MG2 world

Since 1966

In 1966, Mr. Ernesto Gamberini, a young designer of automatic machines, together with Mr. Cesare Grandi, a testing technician, and his uncle Mr. Candido Magri rented a garage in Bologna neighborhood, where they started designing and manufacturing automatic machines for the food and pharmaceuticals industries.

In 1967 MG2 received its first order for a capsule filling machine suitable to dose pharmaceuticals into hard-shell capsules: this product would get so much success to become the core-business of the Company.

This was the starting point of MG2 true success: the Company established itself as a world innovating leader, also thanks to the introduction of continuous-motion technology which brought immediate and long-lasting benefits to machine performances, espacially if compared to the intermittent-motion technology employed by all the other manufacturers.

Invest to grow WORLDWIDE

In 1987, the sister company MG America Inc. began its activity in Fairfield (NJ), USA.

Today the main MG2 headquarters is in Pian di Macina di Pianoro (Bologna, ITALY).

In 2006 a new building, especially designed to host the automated warehouse, was built, thus increasing the overall covered area up to 15.000 sq mt.

Structural investments never stop.
Among these:

  • the photovoltaic power plant installed on the premises’ roofs in 2010;
  • the complete renovation of the block hosting the in-house designing department offices in 2015;
  • the inauguration of the Pharma Zone in 2016;
  • the renovation of the building hosting the in-house mechanical workshop in 2020.
