On May 26, 1969, Boxmarche is set up by a partnership between Sesto Pierfederici and the Baldassarri families (who were operating in various segments such as agriculture, retail and manufacturing) as a wing company to the flourishing local footwear sector. Flagship product: Shoeboxes
The first 10 employees are hired and early production plants are set up.
Our first expansion: a 650 square meter warehouse, doubling up the working space.
Gradually shifting away from footwear sector, clean sweep of the production and marketing machine. Slowly gaining a foothold in paper industry by steering attention to food&beverage, cosmetics, parapharmaceutical and houseware segments.
New office building. Second expansion of the industrial building, brand and colors restyling.
