The Group


We are a unique and leading group in the design and production of complete solutions for labeling, industrial marking and packaging.

T-Trade Group designs and manufactures complete solutions for labeling, industrial marking and packaging. It follows the labeling of the product from its birth, to packaging, to transport, up to its final use or positioning.
The peculiarity of T-Trade Group, which makes this Group unique on the international scene, is that it manages the entire labeling chain: ​

Thermal transfer ribbons, labels, linerless rolls, printing solutions, digital solutions are the result of study and design and therefore internal production. Readers, PDAs, etc., consumables and packaging machines are instead products of which T-Trade is the distributor. Managing the entire labeling chain is a very important strength because it allows T-Trade Group to find perfectly customized solutions for every type of customer need, in total and complete integration.

All this takes place through the pillars of the T-Trade Group corporate philosophy:


Research, develop, produce, distribute in the name of sustainability.


Offer solutions for the labeling of the future, ethics, friend of man and environment.

Our history

Rapid and continuous growth in industrial labeling

Founding of Transfer Trade Srl in Padova, from twenty years of experience gained in the barcoding and product traceability sector. The registered office of T-Trade remains in Padova until 2022.
Founding of T-Trade India Private Limited in Mumbai, to meet the needs of emerging Asian markets, for direct and indirect channels. Today, some formulations of thermal transfer ribbons are produced in India.
Founding of T-Trade Engineering (later One Code Srl, totally absorbed into T-Trade in 2023), a company dedicated to the R&D of technological innovations, such as TT printing solutions covered by numerous international patents.

T-Trade acquires Baltea SpA, a company of the Olivetti Group, the only company producing thermal transfer ribbons in Italy and one of the largest in the world (in its flourishing moments it reached 800 employees). Thus, dozens of specific machines for the transformation of the thermal transfer ribbon are also acquired which, added to the already existing ones, position T-Trade in Europe as the most structured company in the sector.

Opening of the operational and production branch in Monsano (Ancona).
Start of the production of RFID adhesive labels in Milan.
Thanks to the collaboration between T-Trade Group and Ditron Group (Omega Bilance, Sweda, etc.), the first linerless printers (GT ONE) are developed and produced with the aim of following the international market in the world of retail.
T-Trade acquires Gruppo We Care Srl, a long-standing distributor for the world of packaging based in central Italy. Transfer Trade Srl and Gruppo We Care Srl together form the T-Trade Group.
T-Trade launches the new Linerless Rolls production line.
Transferring of the operational and production branch from Monsano to the current headquarters located in Falconara Marittima (Ancona).
T-Trade opens an R&D branch in the autonomous province of Trento, in Be Factory, Progetto Manifattura, located in the European Green Valley. Here, until mid-2023, new eco-sustainable and innovative solutions are developed, both in terms of labeling consumables and Industry 4.0 end-of-line printing solutions.
Start of the production of BIO Labels, the labels that start from nature and return to nature.
T-Trade launches its TT-Lab label production line as a “small paper mill”. The ISO14001 renewal audit in fact certifies the process of: "Design, production of thermal transfer ribbons and neutral and personalized labels through the phases of lamination by adhesive, die-cutting, rewinding and printing". The result, arrived after the difficult years of Covid19, rewards the foresight with which T-Trade has been able to see the future and overcome, in every situation, the difficulties of the market.
T-Trade transfers the registered office from Padova (which remains one of the commercial reference points) to Milan. In the same year TerraMatrix, an innovative startup owned by T-Trade, for R&D, design and production of Printing Solutions and digital, innovative, Industry 4.0, sustainable, ethical platforms for the traceability of products, was created.
Again this year, T-Trade acquires OS2000 of Milan, a distributor of labeling products. In addition, it makes an extension of its operational purposes by formalizing the activity of B&B and residence, acquiring some real estate in Castel D'Emilio (Ancona), with a view to restoring life and value to small villages at risk of depopulation, creating a place of aggregation and hospitality for collaborators, customers and suppliers.


Respect, collaboration and teamwork:
the strength of the T-Trade team

Behind every T-Trade solution, there are people.
The strength of T-Trade is in the cohesion of the whole team, without exception.
It is with the contribution of all those who work in the company that great results are achieved by cooperating with professionalism, creativity and respect. The people who work in T-Trade are much more than employees and collaborators: they are part of the company and together with it they form a team capable of giving strength to the skills, knowledge and diversity of each element.

Social-Environmental-Economic commitment

Talking about sustainability is complex: sustainability must not be a beautiful empty word, it must be real, usable and, even if it falls into a daily business that is complex for everyone, it must be evidence-proof.

Sustainability has been at the helm of T-Trade’s corporate route since its inception.

The path taken by T-Trade has led to tangible results, demonstrable and affordable for all; solutions have costs aligned to standards and offer a great advantage: allowing those who choose them to declare themselves Sustainable Company.

The corporate vision revolves around the concept of all-round sustainability, including economic sustainability and business continuity, ethical sustainability and environmental sustainability.

Sustainability therefore crosses all T-Trade activities, from design to production, to sales, through research and development, relationships with suppliers, employees, collaborators, customers and stakeholders…

Translated into T-Trade products, sustainability is for example thermal transfer ribbons free of toxic elements for humans and the environment; labels that derive from responsible management of resources; research and development and then production of organic labeling solutions; production of innovative printing solutions that eliminate the use of paper; continuous investments to propose the labeling of the future friend of man and the environment and increasingly steeped in ethical values.
