Schur Flexibles Group acquires three packaging locations from the Clondalkin Group

Schur Flexibles Group, Baden/Austria, continues to grow and acquires from Condalkin Group, Utrecht, Netherlands, the following producers of premium packaging : Cats-Hänsel with the two sites Cats Flexibles Packaging B.V., Rotterdam/Netherlands and Hänsel Flexible Packaging GmbH, Freital/Germany, as well as Nimax B.V., Elst/Netherlands.

With these acquisitions, turnover is likely to grow to over 400 million euros in 2018. The intended transaction is subject to internal and external approvals including the approval by the relevant competition authorities. Through this Schur Flexibles strengthens its position in the sector of premium packaging for the confectionary and tea market. The three locations with about 135 employees generate a sales volume of over 30 million euros (2017).

In the segment wax, paper and film packaging for confectionery alone, Schur Flexibles thus achieves a turnover of over 80 million euros and is among the largest providers in Europe in this sector. Cats provides proven expertise in the production of waxed paper and barrier packaging including premium-quality flexo and gravure printing technologies. An example of the company’s innovativeness is ECOWAX, a fully biodegradable vegetable-based alternative to traditional wax packaging adapted by Cats-Hänsel, which offers – not only for confectionary manufacturers – sustainable packaging solutions. Hänsel is one of the leading experts in the confectionery sector for twist and fold wraps.

The highquality, flexible packaging solutions are tuned to run perfectly on the high-speed packing lines of its customers. Nimax is an expert in the production of high-quality tea tags and envelopes, as well as inlay sheets for tobacco packaging.

Schur Flexibles encompasses 12 companies with 14 production plants in Germany, Finland, Denmark, the Netherlands, Poland, Slovakia, Greece and Russia.
