Maklaus was founded in 1995 - Florence Italy by Giovanni Attucci.
With over thirty years worldwide experience in the sector of welding machines, Giovanni manages to meet the needs of the market and proposes the first fully automated stretch film rewinder. Thereupon Maklaus was born.
In 25 years, we have expanded our production range to cover all industrial sectors and agricultural and food sectors; we have satisfied thousands of customers all over the world and we continue to innovate and offer new solutions for our customers.
In 1995, where the rewinding market was carried out by using complex and non-automated machines, Maklaus was created and introduced the first fully automatic rewinder machine for stretch film.
In 1996, in collaboration with a well-known Italian manufacturer, we built the first stretch film printing machine.
In 1997 we advanced the film perforation process by introducing the first perforation unit on moving plastic material.
In 2001, we launched the first RES-UNI for stretch film with the aim of providing small and large manufacturers to
produce different types of stretch rolls using a single machine.
