The origins of Giuseppe Desirò Srl date back to 1860, with the production of cars for tramways, which was transformed, at the end of the century, into the production of presses for straw and felt hats, and subsequently converted once again, in the 50s, to the production of machines to manufacture crown caps and aluminum caps..
Giuseppe Desirò Srl is a family-run business now in its fourth generation, and has been working stably in the packaging sector, specifically in the construction of automatic assembly machines, since the 1950s.
The company is located in Florence, Tuscany, a city famous for its art and artists such as Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo, with firmly rooted artisan traditions.
The Tuscan territory has always stood out principally for its small businesses, in which the mechanics sector has always played an important role, and Giuseppe Desirò Srl has always held a rightful position in that scenario.
The culture and the passion for the construction of automatic assembly machines derives from just that artisan tradition. In every project, attention and care is taken in defining the machine, but also with an underlying flexibility in the creation of the machine, adapting the design to specific requirements, and detailed technical specifications.
The subsequent advent of plastic materials, and the consequent revolution of the packaging industry in general, led Giuseppe Desirò Srl to start a new, modern and diversified line of business in the design and production of machinery for the assembly of plastic products for the food, cosmetic, chemical, pharmaceutical and household products sectors.

Giuseppe Desirò Srl has been operating in the assembly machines sector since the 1950s, starting from machines for the production of crown caps and Pilfer-Proof aluminum capsules, up to concentrating its activity of the last decades in the production of assembly machines.
Since the '50s, Giuseppe Desirò Srl has consistently gained experience in metal working for the creation of crown caps and PP aluminum caps. The first sealing disk inserting assembly machines began to be realized to complete the existing lines; hence the creation of the first cork disk inserting machines, with the application of a cold-glued PE spot for crown caps or PE disks for PP capsules.
The increased use of plastic has lead GD to increasingly concentrate on the construction of assembly machines, consequently reducing lines dedicated to the sheet plate transformation and drawing process required to create capsules.
