Packaging manufacturers collaborate
MULTIVAC, a manufacturer of tray sealers for potatoes and other vegetables, has signed a collaboration agreement with packaging machine manufacturer Italianpack, expanding its product portfolio in the traysealer sector.
MULTIVAC Sepp Haggenmüller SE & Co. KG has a purchase option for 25.1 percent of the shares in Italianpack S.p.A. with a term of three years.
Italianpack, founded in 1988 in Como, Italy, is a growing manufacturer of traysealers and distributes its products worldwide both through a dealer network and directly. The company employs around 70 people and generated sales of 13.7 million euros in 2020.
“Italianpack has been successful on the market for many years. We are looking forward to the collaboration in the traysealer business area, so that we can leverage our respective strengths in the best possible way to the benefit of our customers,” explain Christian Traumann, Group President of MULTIVAC, and Tomaso Petrini, Managing Partner (CEO) of Italianpack.
As part of the collaboration, the smaller model series of MULTIVAC-branded traysealers manufactured by Italianpack will now be sold through MULTIVAC's global sales and service network. MULTIVAC has more than 85 subsidiaries and market coverage of 165 countries.
