Our greatest passion is to partner with our customers to deploy the best solution for innovative and top quality products.
A story born from the passion, the experience and the dream of Ms. Antonella Giannini and Mr. Alberto Monzoni: in 2004 they embarked on the challenge of creating a new way of reinventing the tobacco machinery sector.
Thanks to its innovative spirit, the solid expertise of its people and healthy entrepreneurial culture, the Company has won the trust of many customers immediately, growing quickly until it has become the leading machine manufacturer that is today.
"The only way to do great work is to love what you do"
A history of groundbreaking achievements:
Antonella and Alberto founded Montrade.
Mono machine for acetated filter is launched.
Montrade invented the Combi (patented design), a revolutionary platform for multi-segment combined filter rods.
Predicting the great potential of the use of paper for filters, Montrade designed its first paper crimping module; now the paper machine portfolio is the most complete and innovative in the market, Montrade is the leader here.
A 5.000 sqm facility in a prestigious industrial area of Bologna, nearby the airport.
Montrade started manufacturing the machines that will be flooding the RYO market in the next years.
Montrade reinvents the story of filters with the first NWA maker; from here it starts the excellent collaborations with the main Multinationals for the rollout of their HAT products.
Montrade is chosen as a key OEM for the most disruptive project of the last decade in the tobacco sector: the Heated Tobacco Products; Montrade machine pioneer the CLT and PLA crimping rod maker market.
Here you go the straw: first paper straw maker by Montrade.
Let’s change the rules, again: Montrade invented something never seen before, the first coaxial machine with infinite possibilities.
Going greener: Montrade establishes itself as the undisputed leader of paper filter-making solutions, selling to several customers the only machines in the market capable to ensure constant and quality production of plastic-free filters.
Montrade family has a new house, a 10.000 sqm modern building in addition to the existing factory.
The core of Montrade success is our people.
Our family is composed of highly experienced and enthusiastic professionals, each one with an outstanding background: our engineers and technicians have top level knowledge of automatic machinery coming from years of experience in the leading companies of this sector.
Being customer-centric means setting the priorities with a single objective: deploy excellent service and top quality technology always in time.
For this reason, Montrade invested in building a super-capacity workshop equipped with numerous cutting-edge CNC machines powered by top skilled operators.
In-house, we manufacture most of the parts of our machine with our 3-4-5 axes drilling machines, laser cutting, welding, 3D printing, etc.
In this way, we can assure the highest quality of each component of our machines and provide our customers with timely spare parts supplies.
Our customers are the lifeblood of our activity. We love to accompany them through their challenges towards their achievements.
All the multinationals and most of the other producers in the tobacco business have already chosen Montrade as a faithful partner.
We are proud to have been and to be part of their success stories.
