Sidel creates Engineering & Conveying unit

Sidel is responding to customer demand by creating the “Engineering & Conveying” business unit to focus on optimizing existing bottling lines, rather than investing in new production capacity.

Sidel’s president and CEO Mart Tiismann says, “With the current
economic situation, this decision illustrates our capacity to adapt to
quickly changing market conditions, as well as our strong commitment to
better serving our customers’ needs.”

Since its acquisition of Gebo in 1997, Sidel ( has benefited from its
expertise in engineering and project management, which has high added
value for customers. Now grouped together under the leadership of
former Gebo president Marc Aury, these skills will be put to even
better use for refurbishments, transfers or other line adaptations,
which are currently finding much favor with customers.

According to Aury, “the creation of Sidel Engineering & Conveying
demonstrates that Sidel is much more than just an equipment and
complete line manufacturer: we also have unmatched experience in the
custom design and redesign of production lines, with a view to
optimizing performance.”

The new business unit is already operating worldwide, with more than
800 staff based in North and South America, Europe and Asia.
