Negri Bossi has been a leading company for more than 70 years (75 to be exact). What are the elements that have characterized your company since its foundation?

Negri Bossi celebrated 75 years of activity in 2022: it is a historic Italian company born in Milan in 1947 and during this long period it has managed to build a solid structure that has managed to endure and evolve over time.

For NB, the customer has always been at the centre of all its activities: the goal is to provide more and more benefits to those who buy the brand’s machines, in terms of quality, services and much more.

Negri Bossi products are present in more than 50 countries around the world and millions and millions of pieces are manufactured every day with our equipment, contributing to the success of many thousands of our customers.

The Italian company, characterized by qualities such as flexibility and know-how, and NISSEI PLASTIC together have been able to see the fusion between Italian design and Japanese quality achieved.


How is your company experiencing a difficult moment like the current one?

Despite continued uncertainty in the macroeconomy, problems with inflation, the conflict in Ukraine and rising energy costs, NB at the consolidated level has managed to post nearly identical figures to 2021. We do not have definitive numbers for this year, but 2021 was significant as it was the highest consolidated result in the 75-year history of the Nissei group. Based on the current market uncertainty, we believe this is a very positive result.


Do you think that Equiplast is a good instrument for a company like yours?

Yes, of course! We are historical exhibitors at Equiplast and we also have a historical presence in Spain.

We want to give strength and ​​continuity to our activity in the Spanish market.

In this sense, the group wants to continue expanding the business also in Spain in order to significantly increase its share in the Spanish market.

Equiplast will also be an opportunity to introduce our clients and visitors to the new Negri Bossi Spain staff: our new hires to date are Giuseppe Gastaldi and Nicolás Melis García.

Giuseppe has more than 30 years of experience in the industry while Nicolás is our new area manager for the Valencia, Alicante and Murcia area.

His experience will also lead NB to strengthen its presence in the Spanish market.

What was the balance of the last Equiplast experience?

The last Equiplast was as positive for us as ever.

We continue to offer the latest technology and Equiplast is one of the best European showcases: our range goes from 50 to 7000 t and we have all possible machines from servo to double-decker, electric or two-colour machines.

During the last edition we had a good number of visitors although we still had the shadow of the Covid.

What do you expect from Equiplast 2023?

We are very positive about our future and our presence in the Spanish market.

Equiplast is always an excellent opportunity to meet many of our customers and industry friends with whom we have built ties over the many years we have served the Spanish market.

It is a great opportunity for us to demonstrate for the first time to the Spanish market the synergy of the union between two major brands in the sector: Negri Bossi and Nissei Plastic

We look forward to meeting our loyal customers, but also our potential customers!


What novelties will you present at Equiplast 2023?

At Equiplast we will present our new fully electric fifth generation Nova 5e machine. This product is the result of the first collaboration between NB and Nissei and will be sold exclusively under the Negri Bossi brand. The initial range is between 50 and 180 tons; the product is intended for high-precision and medical applications and complements NB’s current product portfolio.

We invite you all to come and see the precision, accuracy and high technology of this product and the benefits it can bring to your business!
