In Germany, slitting machinery specialist Rotocontrol has acquired LeoMat, supplier of processing machines for adhesive labels, foils and paper for an undisclosed sum.
Rotocontrol managing director Marco Aengenvoort comments “With this acquisition we have significantly increased our manufacturing and engineering capabilities which would be difficult to do so quickly organically. The company is now even more strongly positioned to offer converters around the world a well-rounded product portfolio based on German design and manufacturing.”
Peer Gronkowsky, the former plant manager of Leomat, has been appointed operations manager, to oversee the Rotocontrol service and support, R&D, engineering, manufacturing and purchasing departments. Leomat’s purchasing, manufacturing and engineering employees have also joined the new owner’s team in Ahrensburg.
The acquisition expands Rotocontrol’s product portfolio to include digital and booklet finishing machines. The existing Leomat branded finishing machines will still be available, and service for all installed Leomat product is now available through Rotocontrol.
