The company has been on the market since 1987, when it began as a craft workshop in the activity of slitting self-adhesive tapes for stationery and office use, coming into contact with industry players both at National and European level.
MAC Autoadesivi was born in 1994, as a direct vertical integration of Fralex and a strategic partner for the supply of water-based acrylic coated material. Over the years, thanks to continuous works of engineering and rationalization of the plants, in addition to active and attentive policies towards the continuous changes of the market, Fralex has become one of the leading manufacturers of self-adhesive tapes for organized distribution, dealing indiscriminately with both retailer that keeps private labels and with important international groups. The company’s commercial expansion was also accompanied by the expansion of its business area. In 2007, with the acquisition of a new building, both the production plant and the administrative and commercial offices were expanded, bringing the total extension of the company to a total area of 18,000 square meters, of which 9,500 square meters are covered; further expansion started in 2019, the aim is to further expand the production plant area and the part dedicated exclusively to warehouse and logistics.
The history of a company as an element of guarantee and reliability to have a partner always by your side.
Always being flexible and understanding customer needs in an experienced production process.
In a constantly evolving market, choosing the quality of customer care as a fundamental principle.
In the early 90s, the choice of investing into the acrylic water-based technology was surely moved by less expensive investments for the installation of production facilities. However, this technology was doubtless more risky, because it was less flexible from a production point of view: only few suppliers could provide raw materials, the know-how was still limited and the European market was steered by other two technologies, already widely tested and well grasped by the market (Hot-Melt and natural rubber/Solvent). In these years Fralex, thanks to a total synergy with its partners, has not only positioned itself firmly on the market starting first from the most attentive customers and sensitive to quality and the environment and then expanding throughout Europe, but has started to produce tapes that today are produced with other technologies.
Research and development
Enlarging the product range is a necessity and a natural process at the same time, for those who want to invest in technology. Our effort in research is focused on both new products setting out as well as production process improvement with the aim of consuming less energy and having fewer waste by-products. We are conscious that we will be able to carry on our mission of divulgation of acrylic technology high standards only with the help and the concrete involvement of our high-profile industrial partners (our suppliers).
