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.
