World War II is just ended. Milan is the engine pulling the country to its rebirth. Sacchital starts production of pre-made paper bags for the food industry.

The success of Sacchital means growth and diversification. Gravure printing lines and flexible packaging manufacturing are set up.



Sacchital moves into a new, modern production plant in the vicinity of Milan. Sacchital is now a major player in the business.
