SR Innova: more than 65 years at your service

In 1947, the family business Talleres Ricart was founded and initially specialised in the manufacture of machinery for glass bottle transportation, filling and washing.

Between 1962 and 1967, the Company gradually transformed its business into offering end-of-line solutions, initially manufacturing case packers and palletisers.

In 1992, it combined its expertise with that of Samovi Group, which brought with it its experience in machine software and programming, and became SAMOVI RICART, S.A., a market leading company in Europe and worldwide.
