24 Oct 2014

Further strengthening the PackSys Global portfolio

PackSys Global AG is pleased to announce that with effect from October 22, 2014, it has acquired 100% of the shares of Combitool AG, located in Baeretswil, Switzerland.

Combitool develops and manufactures tube production equipment with a clear focus on the cosmetics market. The company was founded in 1987 by Henry Ueberegger and has, over the years, become a successful player in the field of laminate and extruded tube machinery.

Combitool has, since its inception, earned a reputation for outstanding customer support. Our goal is to continue and, where possible, enhance this proud tradition.

Hans J. Steurer will continue as Managing Director of Combitool, reporting to Manfred Zurkirch, CEO of PackSys Global. Combitool will keep its name and location and will continue to offer excellent service and an interesting product portfolio to all customers. The company will organizationally be embedded in the PackSys Group in the same way as TEXA and MADAG Printing Systems.

PackSys Global and Combitool are convinced that together we can offer an even more comprehensive product portfolio and further improved service to customers.
