One Company. One Source. For 50 Years.

About Us

Key international was founded in 1968 by 3 entrepreneurs: Primo Ianieri, Art Pearce, and Bill Mohn. The business was focused on rebuilding tablet presses and other similar pharmaceutical processing equipment that was in need of repair. After several years of rebuilding equipment, in 1975, Primo Ianieri decided it was time to expand the business into the sales and service of new pharmaceutical processing equipment from Europe. Key International was very successful in this new endeavor and became a well-known entity for sales and service in the U.S. marketplace.

Soon after, many top European and Asian pharmaceutical processing and packaging equipment manufacturers entrusted Key International to sell their line of equipment to North America. Today, celebrating our 50th anniversary, Key International has exclusive partnerships with 15 of the world’s top machine manufacturers from Asia, Europe, and the U.S. to supply state-of-the-art processing and packaging equipment designed to improve efficiency, flexibility, and reliability to the pharmaceutical, food, and cosmetic industries.
