Mario Bortolin founded Bortolin Srl, a company specialised in the production of small plants for wine pouring for bars and restaurants.
When the first needs for bottling began to grow, Mario Bortolin was among the first to propose small linear filling machines and, later, the first bottling lines with rotary machines.
The company specialised in the construction of end-of-line machines: case erectors, case packers, case sealers, palletizers and depalletizers.
The company acquired Kemo Industries, a company specialised in the manufacturing of machines for the production of metal closures.
Bortolin and Kemo Industries, joined to create Bortolin Kemo S.p.A.
The two production facilities were joined at the headquarters in Porcia (Pordenone).
Bortolin Kemo NE Ltd., a subsidiary based in the United Kingdom, with the aim of following the North European markets.
Bortolin Kemo Inc., based in Florida (USA), was founded to more closely follow the American and Canadian market.
The evolution of the company continues with the expansion of the entire headquarters and its commercial, administrative and technical offices.
