Manufacturers and packaging companies worldwide rely on this know-how

Backed by our know-how and experience, we develop innovative technologies and solutions in order to stay ahead in terms of technology at all times.


Michael Saltuari, a native of Bolzano, began working as a technician at the Mathá company in Bolzano after his journeyman’s examination as a machine fitter and his military service. The company was already selling scales from the manufacturer Bizerba at that time. After seven years, Saltuari had risen to the position of chief technician and decided to go into business for himself.

On 15 September 1991, he founded the sole proprietorship TopControl, the name of which he came up with while on holiday after several smaller and larger developments for regional businesses. The beginning of self-employment consisted of Saltuari working full time for Mathá, who, however, were exclusively active in trade, while Saltuari located potential in industry. A number of orders and developments over the next few years enabled the man from Bolzano to expand his business until 1997, when he decided he wanted to gain a foothold in the food industry.

With FruitManager – a software that guaranteed the traceability of the fruit – Saltuari met exactly the needs of the food producers based in South Tyrol. A cooperation with the fruit processing plant manufacturer Longobardi enabled the young company to quickly gain a foothold with its system, also in neighbouring countries. Today, TopControl is an established specialist for automation and system solutions in the industrial environment, planning, developing and implementing complete solutions. Production and logistics control, weighing technology, labelling systems and traceability, these are the company’s areas of expertise.
