Food Packaging Lines and Pasta Processing Equipment

About Us

Brilliantly Designed Machines (BDM) was started by Alessandro Gioacchini in 1999 and is based in Kansas City, Kansas. The company began by offering equipment by Ricciarelli, a top world manufacturer of packaging machinery.

In the dry pasta industry we are associated with the absolute leader, Fava Spa from Cento, Italy. Fava is the number one maker of industrial pasta machinery worldwide.

BDM's quick growth stems from the years of experience behind its founder. Alessandro Gioacchini was born and raised in the heart of Italyís food region, Parma where two decades ago, as a young man, he spent his summers working on pasta lines, replacing parts and learning about the intricacies of the brilliantly designed machines his father helped create, first for Barilla and then ParmaSei. He migrated to the United States in 1990 to manage the US sales office of Braibanti. Since then Alessandro has worked with every major North American pasta producer, representing the Italian-made equipment they rely on. The result is an unparalleled familiarity with all facets of the American approach to pasta plant design and operation.

BDM has dramatically grown in the last decade so that now it can count on a team of field engineers, sales managers and sales supports specialists readily available to assist any requests from our vast clientele.
