On April 29, 1993 the first Italian Mail Boxes Etc. (“MBE”) Center opened in via della Moscova 13, Milan. This milestone marked the official start in Europe for one of the world’s largest networks of conveniently located Service Centers offering shipping, logistics, printing, graphic and postal service solutions to business and private customers.
The Master License for Italy was acquired in June 1992. By 2003, the MBE success story was repeated with further expansions in Spain, Germany and Austria. In 2009, the entire MBE global business (except for North America) was acquired by Milan-based MBE Worldwide. The record of success reached another milestone in 2017 with the strategic acquisition of two U.S.-based companies: PostNet and AlphaGraphics. By FYE 2017, the MBE Global Network expanded to approximately 2,500 Service Centers in 44 Countries and combined System-wide Sales of €830 million.
"From the opening of our Moscova Center to today’s 25-year-anniversary-celebration, we achieved many prestigious milestones characterized by constant challenges and continuous growth" - said Paolo Fiorelli, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer MBE Worldwide. “It has been - and continues to be – an amazing journey and a successful story that would never have been possible without the passion, ambition and commitment of all the people who comprise the MBE team: a team of people who make things possible – the MBE #PeoplePossible team!"
Since opening in 1993, the MBE Italian Network alone has reached more than 530 Service Centers where each day hundreds of passionate entrepreneurs live the MBE mission: to create individualized solutions to transform customers’ professional and personal challenges into achieved goals.
