Salchi Metalcoat has acquired the Metal Packaging, Aluminium Tube and Monobloc business, including Seam Protection powder, and also the Spray Lacquer business from Schekolin AG in Bendern (Liechtenstein). The sales contract was signed on 31 March 2017. Closing is scheduled for end of April 2017.
Salchi Metalcoat’s purchase offer includes the transfer of the product portfolio in the three areas, together with technical and organisational know-how, product inventories and customer bases.
In the light of Salchi Metalcoat’s long-term interest, this acquisition marks a good and future-oriented solution. The combination of specialist knowledge and technical know-how from the two companies will bring further advantages in terms of products, value and service. Until further notice, Schekolin will be continuing the production of packaging coatings on behalf of Salchi Metalcoat in the framework of a contract manufacturing agreement.
