THE NEXTS BIG T H I N G
ITALIAN THERMOFORMING SPECIALIST NEXTS HAS CHARTED A RAPID
RISE AS A CAPSULE MANUFACTURER.
Italian capsule manufacturer NexTS has a history that closely resembles the fortunes of the industry that it operates in. Just as the capsule industry has grown stratospherically since it hit the market, NexTS has risen rapidly since its establishment in 2011. Starting off as the realization of an unsolicited opportunity, NexTS is now producing more than 500 million capsules per year. NexTS is the result of a partnership between Andrea Varisco and Richard Vergiani, who formed the company as an offshoot of thermoforming mould producer, Termostampi, after seeing the potential for coffee capsules. “A big client of Termostampi asked us if we were interested in producing capsules as well, not only moulds,” Vergiani, who is the President of NexTS, tells GCR Magazine. “And we accepted the challenge.” Based in Cernusco sul Naviglio on the outskirts of Milan in Italy, Termostampi has been involved in thermoform moulding for more than 40 years, servicing clients all around the globe.
