It combines together Clevertech experience for the tertiary packaging, Atlanta Packers and HRS experience in the secondary packaging together with Makro Labelling know how in the primary packaging. In this way Clevertech South Asia is able to satisfy any requirement for the whole dry part of line.
Clevertech South Asia has already supported Makro Labelling with excellent result by placing important orders in the beverage area in India.

Robots meet art in the time of COVID-19
Clevertech Group, a leading company in the industrial automation market, has been given a great opportunity to contribute to the fight against COVID-19 and has transformed this experience into a tribute to entertainment, a sector that has particularly suffered in these pandemic times.
The new end-of-line system produced for the American market, in fact, is featured in a video that Clevertech Group had a strong desire to make in order to show that industry also recognises the value of art and entertainment in a historical moment of great difficulty for the world of culture in general, which has been overwhelmed by the restrictions due to the pandemic.
Clevertech Group has been selected for an international engineering project for an important multinational company that works in the household cleaning sector. In the United States, the client company is the leading producer of disinfectant products, capable of eliminating 99.9% of the bacteria with which they come into contact. In the months marked by the pandemic, the demand for disinfectants increased considerably and the company decided to increase its production to combat the spread of the virus.
Company Vaccination Campaign
Clevertech Group took part in the worker vaccination campaign promoted by the Reggio Emilia Unindustria and Confcooperative associations.
Both are providing encouragement and support in incentivising the vaccination of the 70,000 workers at the 1,400 companies who are members of the associations.
Unindustria and Confcooperative have put in place a protocol with the Reggio Emilia local health authority in partnership with Check-Up Service and 3C Salute. The two organisations will make their healthcare personnel available to administer vaccine shots at the two dedicated vaccination points set up at the Ente Fiere Reggio Emilia exhibition centre.
The goal is to reduce the pressure on the public vaccination hubs, offering workers the opportunity to access the service more quickly with reduced costs to the associated companies.
Access to vaccinations is provided in compliance with data-protection regulations, legislation enacted due to the pandemic, and other national legislative provisions.
