About us

Since 1885 in Milan we have been packaging Quality


Few people know that Gandus history goes back to 1885., when a distinguished gentleman named Prospero Gandus founds his company in Milan.

The production begins with paper bags to contain the needles for the sewing machines.

Since its foundation Gandus has been a manufacturing company.

And since its foundation Gandus has been managed by Prospero Gandus first and his descendance then.

Craftsmanship and precision, all Italian.



The destruction of the Second World War does not stop the activity.

Always in Milan, the family rebuilds what has been destroyed and continues to work in the market.

With the advent of polyethylene bags, in 1954 Gandus enters the world of packaging machines, designing and manufacturing the first impulse sealer for their closure.

The success is immediate and the brand is affirmed on the market thanks to professionalism, reliability and utmost quality.


In the 80es, upon request of an important worldwide Company, Gandus Saldatrici develops and manufactures the first model of medical sealer for sterilization pouches.

The success is great and immediate.

Since then the Company has grown up to become the national and international point of reference in the medical packaging industry.
