SIC Marking’s headquarters in France have recently started a building expansion to create more production and office space to efficiently handle market demand. The building expansion will provide an additional space to accommodate increasing production rate and new staff, including a new Customer Service department, larger production workshop and expanded assembly space. The expansion will be completed in March 2018 to grow further (turnover increase of 10% every year) with operational excellence in mind.

SIC Marking Group has acquired Global Network Marking in June 2017 (Italy) in order to increase revenue in Italy to 3 millions € by 2020 and strengthen our position on the European industrial marking market in the automotive, aerospace, oil & gas and mechanical sectors. Global Network Marking, a Bologna based company which was distributing SIC products in Italy since year 2000. Fabio di Pardo, President and founder of Global Network Marking, is now President of SIC Marking Italia.

The launch of SIC Marking Italia will consolidate our presence in the area and is part of the new strategy led by Jean Manuel PAUCHET (Managing Director) and Gérard Barraud (CEO).

The agreements for SIC Marking’s new subsidiaries in the UK and in Mexico have been signed during the last quarter of 2017. The group now counts officially 8 subsidiaries worldwide with SIC Marking Limited (UK) and SIC Marking Mexico.

These new locations reinforce SIC Marking’s desire to increase its international footprint and through this expansion, enable its customers to work with our local subsidiary and to adapt to local conditions. English offices will be located in Warwick (close to Birmingham) and lead by Paul Sidwell, who has been working in the traceability and marking industry for many years. As for our Mexican offices, they will be located in Mexico City and managed by Oscar Watty who was leading the company Generatrix, one of our distributors in Mexico.
