Pursuing its Buy & Build strategy, EOL Packaging Experts (EOL) has made a second add-on acquisition by investing in BMS Maschinenfabrik GmbH (BMS) in Pfatter, Germany. End-of-line packaging specialist EoL composed of A+F Automation + Fördertechnik GmbH (A+F) and Standard-Knapp, Inc. (S-K) in Portland, Connecticut, has thus gained an important partner in German-speaking countries. This step will further strengthen the group’s positioning in Europe and boost its growth sustainably.
This investment fits perfectly into the EoL group’s strategic planning and aim to be a market leader in end-of-line packaging solutions for the food and beverages industry. Together with A+F as a leading provider of integrated and innovative systems solutions for secondary and tertiary packaging, as well as S-K as a leading manufacturer of end-of-line packaging machines in the US market, BMS will in future complement the group as a provider of systems for innovative sorting installations, state of the art end-of-line solutions, and flexible repacking solutions. Within EOL’s global sales and service structure, A+F, S-K, and BMS will equally benefit and complement each other in the market area and the product portfolio as well as in production and machine technology, digitization, service, and project management.
