Cermex acquires Newtec Case Palletizing

To further enhance its range and expertise Cermex, manufacturer of secondary packaging machinery and a subsidiary of the Tetra Laval group, is acquiring Newtec Case Palletizing, an expert in palletizing systems, from the Newtec Group.

The acquisition represents a continuation of Cermex’s growth strategy, by consolidating and strengthening its three-dimensional expertise in case packing, shrink-wrapping and palletizing. Cermex will acquire Newtec Case Palletizing’s plant in Saint-Laurent-sur-Sèvre in France, and its related layer-by-layer and robotic-unit load palletizing activity. In addition to expanding its turnover and workforce, which will now reach € 120 million and nearly 800 employees respectively, the acquisition will also enable Cermex to create opportunities for synergies, both internationally and in new market segments.

Newtec Case Palletizing strengthens and increases Cermex’s range of palletizing solutions. At the same time, the global strength of the Cermex Sales & Services organization, and its experience with international buyers, opens up wider opportunities to the newly-expanded range.

This new stage in Cermex’s expansion will further improve its service to its historical customers in the food, beverage, home care, personal care and health care sectors. Thanks to Newtec Case Palletizing’s expertise in liquid dairy products, this latter market segment will form a more integral part of the Cermex strategy.
