The OFFICINE AVE were first established in 1964, when the company began to design, manufacture and market bottling machines, initially dedicated to the Italian winemaking sector. From 1970 onwards, the novel AVE machines for bottling carbonated soft drinks rapidly penetrated the Middle Eastern and North African markets, with the installation of the first complete turnkey plants. The 1980s saw the opening of numerous branches abroad, including AVE UK and AVE ROM. Towards the end of the 1990s and up until the turn of the century, AVE was the first in the world to focus with determination on integrating its products with electronic controls, giving rise to its EFS range, which immediately met with success on the market. Thanks to AVE, the filling machines that had previously been managed exclusively and with growing difficulty by means of mechanical devices, could now be handled by means of effective electronic controls. Within just a few years, the company thus reinforced the validity of its offer and was distributing its products and services to 60 countries around the world, establishing cooperative agreements with important industrial groups and manufacturing companies. AVE manages every stage of its projects, interacting actively with its customers, listening to and understanding their requirements. The experience it has acquired, combined with the company's commercial and technological flexibility and a desire to satisfy every customer's needs, become a guarantee of excellent service everywhere and in every situation. It was also around the same time that the company focused on aseptic filling systems.
