The Com­pany has more than eighty years of history in the pro­duc­tion and distri­bu­tion of pro­fes­sio­nal cof­fee machi­nes for the Ho.Re.Ca. seg­ment. Ran­ci­lio is pre­sent all over the world and the com­mer­cial pre­sence is based on a capil­lary distri­bu­tion net­work. Sales abroad account for approx. 70%, in par­ti­cu­lar thanks to the com­mer­cial sub­si­dia­ries in Spain, Por­tu­gal, the Uni­ted Sta­tes, Swi­tzer­land and Ger­many. In June 2008, Ran­ci­lio acqui­red the Swiss com­pany Egro Cof­fee Systems — histo­ri­cal brand in the seg­ment of supe­rau­to­ma­tic cof­fee machi­nes for bars.

The com­pany was sold to Ali Group, glo­bal lea­der in the food­ser­vice equi­p­ment with a tur­no­ver in excess of € 1.6 billion.
