Smeg acquires Italian coffee machine maker
Italian appliance manufacturer Smeg has acquired Milan-based La Pavoni, which is claimed to be the “world’s first” producer of the modern espresso bar coffee machine.
La Pavoni was founded in 1905 and has a history marked by collaborations with highly respected architects and designers, including Giò Ponti, one of the Italian masters of architecture and industrial design.
The acquisition will see the two companies share industry knowhow and, according to Smeg, “continue to create beautifully designed products whilst re-enforcing the strength of a ‘Made in Italy’ ethos.”
