The company was founded in 1994 as a vertical integration of FRALEX, a company specialized in the production and selection of adhesive tapes for home, office and school. Installing its first coating line did not only mean the improvement of quality standardisation and the reduction of supply time of jumbo rolls for Fralex’ cutting machines, it also brought MAC into the packaging world. MAC reaffirmed its role in 1998 with the purchase of its second coating line, gaining, this way, a crucial role in the European market.
Hereinafter, thanks to the dynamism, flexibility and targeted investments, such as the strengthening of the production of printable tapes and the development of the quality control and research and development laboratory, MAC made a name of itself and became an ideal partner for those who demanded quality and flexibility from their suppliers. Recently, MAC has carried on further crucial investments, i.e. the installation of its third coating line, of its fourth cutting line and the automation of every step of the production chain. However MAC made important investments not only for its physical capital, but also for its human capital, promoting training programs about essential issues like quality, environment and safety for all its collaborators.
In addition to having developed an integrated management system for Quality, Environment and Safety according to international ISO standards, today MAC Autoadesivi is the manufacturer of adhesive tapes that has obtained EMAS registration, thus demonstrating the utmost attention to safeguarding the environment.

Technological choices at the service of the customer’s needs. In 1994 the choice to get into the acrylic water-based technology was surely moved by less expensive investments to initialise the production system. However, this technology was doubtless more risky.
In fact, productively speaking, it was less flexible: only few suppliers could provide raw materials, the know-how was still limited and the European market was steered by other two already widely spread and affirmed technologies (Hot-Melt and natural rubber resin/Solvent). In 1998 buying and starting the second coating line was not only an important investment but also a challenge, whose aim was to spread and affirm a high performance and more eco-friendly product than other technologies were.
Thanks to the complete synergy with its partners MAC Autoadesivi found, during the years, a solid position on the market; it first started from those territories that demanded high quality and care for the environment and then broadened out in whole Europe.
Mac also committed itself to project and develop new alternative products (HMA and SA). Tomorrow’s challenge will be to produce many more adhesive tapes that today involve different technologies.
