Nemera has appointed Roberto Restivo as the General Manager of the new Nemera manufacturing facility in Brazil. As a seasoned international leader, Roberto brings in a wealth of experience in several industry sectors, including medical, plastics and aerospace. Roberto has held management positions with responsibility for a wide range of fields including sales & business development, finance, industrial operations and strategy & acquisitions. Roberto, supported by the previous family owners, will ensure a smooth transition with Milfra’s existing leadership team, and he will continue to develop and grow the local Nemera team and business in the future.

Marc Hämel, CEO of Nemera said, “This acquisition opens-up new opportunities for Nemera in Brazil and Latin America in general. It will enable us to better understand and serve even more patients with different needs. We feel privileged by the opportunity to integrate a new and unique culture to our already international company. Despite the tough sanitary situation and the restrictions to travel, we have already established a very good relationship with the Milfra leadership team and we have a very good feeling about their strong company culture and expertise.”

“Since we began our first discussions with the Nemera team, I was convinced that becoming part of the Nemera family was the perfect match for Milfra. We fully align with Nemera’s vision of becoming the most patient-centric drug device solutions company in the world. After a long history of manufacturing in Brazil it is fantastic to enable Nemera to operate in Brazil.” added Francisco Pofirio, owner of Milfra.


About Milfra


Founded in 1966, in the city of Santo André, SP, Milfra became one of the leading manufacturers of eletro-mechanical devices for OEM manufacturers for audio and video equipment. With the changes in market dynamics in the 2000s the family decided to leverage Milfra’s advanced manufacturing capabilities – in particular in tool making and injection moulding knowhow – to service the pharmaceutical packaging industry, with a strong focus on vaginal applicators. It has quickly become the leader in the segment.


In 2007 Milfra successfully expanded its product portfolio with a complete line of oral dosers. In 2020 Milfra launched a new line of products, including droppers, even with the challenges brought by the pandemic.


The focus on quality and automation has led Milfra to become a leader in this market, always focused on how to best meet the specific needs of its customers.
