About Us

We rely on the most advanced technology to provide tailor-made solutions for every type of application

SER was founded in 1988, with the mission of using waxes as a vehicle for innovation, to improve the efficiency of any industrial process in which they are involved. SER stands for Sintesi e Ricerca (Synthesis and Research), two words condensing the vision and paradigm of the company. Today SER is leader in the production of special waxes in Europe and has a globally consolidated presence in every application sector.

We rely on the most advanced technology to provide tailor-made solutions for every type of application: waxes and additives for the cosmetic sector, the food industry (chewing gum, cheese and food packaging), the rubber industry, the wood and tire industry, the automotive sector, the agriculture sector (grafts, pesticides and fertilizers) and any kind of product involving the use of wax as raw material or additive within its production process.

R&D constitutes the pulsing heart of SER, which reinvests more than 10% of its annual turnover in innovation, with a constant focus on developing new solutions able to improve its clients’ processes and consolidate its own advantage in the market.

Each and every project is the result of a partnership with a client, in which SER plays the role of the problem-solver, with a portfolio boasting thousands of active clients and several thousands of different products.

SER’s production processes and logistics are fully automated, in order to always ensure constant quality and extreme competitiveness.

The experience gained over time has enabled SER to identify with certainty the benefits of using a customized wax, compared to a standard product: Increased productivity Increased quality Reduction of waste and defects on the finished product.
