Our company

Automatic packaging machines for the food industry.

— our story
STV history began in 1974 when Giovanni Salati, the founder of the company, started the production of automatic packaging machines for the food industry.
The insight of the founder is the footprint that remains to this day: to produce technologically advanced machines, designed and made to measure for each Customer.
The route over the years is characterized by the continuous search for innovative solutions, which represents a concrete Customer support.
During the first decade the activity was mainly directed to the national market. Then the product range rapidly expanded to meet the growing demands of the agro-food and canning market.
But it was from the ’90s, with the opening of foreign markets, that the company’s most significant development began. Those were the years in which the new plant in Basilicanova, just outside Parma, in the heart of the so-called “Food Valley”, was built.
Today STV is a company which deals internally with all production stages from design to final installation. It operates on all continents providing advice and timely assistance to Customers worldwide with the same passion of that first day of 1974.
