When you talk about magical places, you unavoidably think about the magical light of the candle, mysterious and fascinating object, which accompanies men in the most important moments in their life.
Near Turin, in the town of Santena, the magic of candles has become reality thanks to the company SER S.p.A., international leader in the manufacturing of industrial waxes, which since 1988 has been providing a wide range of custom-made candles, realized according to the specific customer requirements.
For customized productions you need flexible plants
With a range of about 500 different formulations, created for around 800 companies which SER supplies, it is fundamental to be equipped with efficient and flexible production plants, able to easily and quickly adapt to different formats of candles, carry out fast changeovers and maintain high levels of operational efficiency.
These requirements are met by the SK ERGON shrink wrapper provided by SMI, able to pack candles of different sizes in several formats in film-only or tray+film, in single and double lane.
Price's, the candle of Her Majesty the Queen of the United Kingdom

Since 2003 Price's has become part of the SER Wax Industry in Santena (Turin) and this can be seen as synonym of excellent quality from all the points of view.
