IGB is one of the most renowned players in the pharmaceutical packaging sector.

IGB was founded by Dino Bressan and his colleague during the 1960s economic boom. It started under the name of “Grafica Viggiù” as a general-purpose printing house.

During the 80s Dino Bressan became the sole owner and named the company “IGB” “Industrie Grafiche Bressan” which is the name it has today.

IGB started up designing and developing folding boxes for different products and over the years focused on the production of pharmaceutical packaging and cosmetic packaging.

During the 90s the company integrated all processes of the paper and graphics supply chain (design, pre-press, press and post-press) for the development of pharmaceutical packaging using the best available technologies.

Since the end of the 90s, the second generation of the family took over, keeping the company up to date.

It has expanded and improved its research and development department. Up to today IGB has been filing several of patents such as tamper-evident cartons and child-resistant cartons, being noticed by many leading pharmaceutical companies.
