TURIN, Italy — Italy-based Inkmaker srl has acquired the German company SWESA Dosiersysteme GmbH, a specialist in customized dosing systems. The acquisition is another milestone in achieving Inkmaker Group’s objective of offering complete process engineering to its client. The acquisition is Inkmaker’s third since 2019. The company acquired the businesses of Rexson Systems Limited and Vale-Tech Limited in the United Kingdom in October 2019, and in January of this year it purchased Tecnopails S.n.c in Italy.
SWESA matches ecological and economic ideas with innovative dosing systems such as the FLEXO and SMARTMaster. These machines, respected in the market for being sturdy and durable, are known for not requiring frequent servicing. Additionally SWESA’s unique needleless valves, with their ability of achieving 100% ink circulation, have attracted a significant database of global customers from the food packaging, office furniture, tissues and heavy-duty corrugated packaging industries.
Christophe Rizzo, CEO of the Inkmaker Group, EMEA and AMERICAS, said, “Over the past few years, Inkmaker has managed to successfully increase its business in Germany. The growth realized necessitated a next step, and the acquisition of SWESA is the logical outcome of it. SWESA’s knowledge and technology is a perfect fit for the Inkmaker Group, and we will continue the production of SWESA units in Germany. On behalf of the board, we are pleased to welcome SWESA Dosiersysteme GmbH to our growing family of brands.”
Roland Steinberg, Managing Director and owner of SWESA, will continue to play an active role in sales, as SWESA takes on a greater role within the Inkmaker group of companies. SWESA will continue its focus on niche dispensing systems for the food packaging, office furniture, tissues and heavy-duty corrugated packaging industries from its base in Eltville am Rhein, Germany, and will continue to support its existing SWESA customers. Additionally, the company will benefit from the support available from the Inkmaker group of companies’ global businesses — including offices in Europe, North America, South America, Asia and Australasia — as well as their combined global network of partners, who will offer greater sales and support to clients.
