Global supplier of technology and services Bosch has signed an agreement to acquire Ampack Ammann in Germany, for an undisclosed amount.
Bosch Packaging Technology division president Friedbert Klefenz said with the acquisition the company will be able to complement its existing product portfolio in the segment.
"Ampack Ammann is a technological leader in the area of low-germ and aseptic processing of pre-formed cups and bottles," Klefenz added.
The acquisition is subject to approval by the antitrust authorities.
Ampack Ammann, which generated average sales of some €35m over the past few years develops, manufactures and sells filling and packaging machines for liquid and paste-like foodstuffs. The company produces equipment including cup and bottle filling machines as well as dosing systems and peripheral machinery.
