MG America, the U.S. subsidiary of MG2 of Bologna, Italy and a leading supplier of processing and packaging equipment, has hired equipment sector veteran Peter Spinelli as Director of Sales & Marketing.
In this senior executive role, Mr. Spinelli will oversee all sales and marketing activities for MG America’s two machinery divisions, Processing and Packaging. The former comprises a portfolio of capsule fillers, tablet presses and material handling machinery, as well as checkweighers, vision systems and other related solutions.
