Comprising three strong brands – Sidel, Gebo Cermex and Novembal – we are passionate about providing complete solutions that fulfil customer needs and boost the performance of their lines, products and businesses.
Delivering this level of performance requires that we continuously understand our customers’ challenges and commit to meeting their unique goals.

At the Sidel Group, we direct all our efforts to creating performance for our customers throughout their entire supply chains. We strive to understand the specific needs of all our customers. No matter if these needs are related to product features, market context or value chain challenges: by combining our strengths and expertise, we can tailor our solutions through a combination of technology, services and experienced people, to deliver customers the exact performance they need to ensure their long-term success.
Today’s consumer is growing more selective – demanding products with greater individuality, variety and convenience. For beverage, food, home and personal care producers, this generally means the need for increased flexibility and more productive uptime in their bottling lines, with more frequent product launches, resulting in shorter production cycles and faster changeovers. Additionally, the influence of e-commerce and – in parallel – the establishment of new consumer experience at the point of sale require distribution with more customised delivery methods and increased responsiveness.
Ultimately, it is about coping with a growing pressure to continually adapt and change, while still exploring ways to improve line performance overtime and keeping total cost of ownership (TCO) as low as possible. Producers need to monitor equipment efficiency, in order to ensure optimum productivity. They must also control system performance to maximise uptime across the line and implement sustainability measures to lower the consumption of energy, raw materials and other resources. To help customers deal with these challenges, the Sidel Group strongly focuses on offering complete line and standalone solutions that are more connected, smart, flexible and responsive comprising innovative equipment and services, supported with leading packaging and material handling expertise.
