About us

70 EXPERIENCE YEARS IN POST-PRESS

The deep knowledge about the post-press requirements, the harmonic work of all people of Petratto’s companies and their cooperators allow to study and update new and advantageous machines and unknown technological solutions.

MISSION:
NOT TO COPY MACHINES
The copied technology doesn’t allow a primary development (the most profitable) in the post-press jobs.

To protect with patents our ideas and the work of our customers.
