Sacmi acquires Velomat
The Imola-based Company is the world’s leading provider of closures-beverage solutions
Italian Sacmi Imola, the world’s leading provider of closures-beverage solutions, purchased Abruzzo-based Velomat, a leading designer and manufacturer of high-speed assembly machines for caps, micro-pumps and medical devices.
“The industry“, explains the President of Sacmi Imola, Paolo Mongardi, “is evolving towards multi-line and multi-material solutions that require careful assessment of the technology package in order to meet production requirements. Rising to that challenge will involve research into both new materials/solutions and component assembly: and when it comes to the latter, Velomat is just the firm we’ve been looking for to help implement our growth strategy“.
Now 70% Sacmi-owned – with a 100% buyout option – the Abruzzo-based company already leads the way on European markets and is a key supplier to numerous sectors (not only food but also, but not mainly, pharma, housekeeping, cosmetics, etc.). The international Sacmi Group has a turnover of 1.4 billion euros and a structured presence in 30 countries: joining its Global Network opens up major new internationalisation prospects for Velomat, with SACMI setting up new synergies and ensuring managerial continuity.
