Graphius Group commits to the further growth of its packaging division with the acquisition of Aarschot-based Rembrandt and Remmicom Packaging.
On 25 April, Rembrandt Verpakking and Remmicom Packaging from Aarschot joined Graphius Group.
With this transaction, the group has strengthened its position in the packaging market. Together with the previous acquisition of Lowyck in Ostend and Etiglia in Beersel, Graphius Group has thus significantly diversified its offering as a supplier of packaging materials.
Denis Geers, CEO Graphius Group: “Our partnership with Rembrandt Verpakking and Remmicom Packaging is an important step for our organisation and one that fits into the group’s diversification strategy. Our activities at Lowyck (paperboard) and Etiglia (labels) dovetail nicely with those of Rembrandt, resulting in a valuable cross-fertilisation and a lot of knowledge transfer between the companies. This allows us to offer our customers a complete solution, ranging from labels and clips to folding boxes.”
Led by Dirk Roosen, Rembrandt Verpakking and Remmicom Packaging will continue to exist as separate entities. However, from now on they will enjoy the economies of scale of a larger group.
Dirk Roosen, CEO of Rembrandt Verpakking and Remmicom Packaging: “We believe this transaction will have a leveraging effect on the further development of both our businesses. Under the aegis of Graphius Group, long-term continuity is assured for our customers and employees. Looking to the future, we will be able to make the necessary investments in equipment, people and training. All with a view to strengthening our position in the paperboard market.”
