Production, finishing, packaging from a single source - Packsys Global completes the integration of various acquisitions made in recent years

Packsys Global packaging.

Packsys Global AG in Rüti ZH is a global supplier of special machines for the packaging industry. For 45 years the company has been developing and building systems for the production of laminate tubes and extruded plastic tubes, aluminum tubes, plastic closures, spray cans and machines for decorating metal closures. Packsys Global now reports that the integration of various acquisitions over the past few years has been successfully completed.

Madag Printing Systems AG, based in Fahrweid, has been adding hot stamping and finishing systems to its portfolio since 2012. Products refined by hot stamping include perfume bottles, cosmetic tubes and jars, mascara tubes, plastic and glass bottles, closures for wines and spirits and automotive accessories. Particularly in the markets for closures and tubes, there are strong synergies with Packsys Global in terms of technology and customers.

Texa AG in Haldenstein has been an organizational part of the Packsys Global Group since 2013. By specializing in the development and construction of tailor-made packaging machines, Texa complements all areas of the group. The unfilled cosmetic, aluminum and toothpaste tubes as well as cans and cartridges manufactured or decorated on the systems of Packsys Global, Madag Printing Systems or Combitool are packed on Texa machines for the way from the producer to the filler.

In 2014 Packsys Global acquired Combitool AG based in neighboring Bäretswil. Combitool develops and produces machines, complete production lines and special tools for the manufacture of laminate tubes and extruded tubes, with a focus on the cosmetics segment. This acquisition complements the range of tube production lines as Combitool specializes in machines in the lower speed sector, while Packsys Global is known for high speed systems.

In addition to the technology center in Switzerland, the production and assembly sites in Switzerland and Thailand, Packsys Global also includes a center for technical documentation and 24-hour customer service in India. CEO of the group is Dr. Manfred Zurkirch. The more than 500 employees at the various locations generated consolidated sales of more than CHF 100 million in the past financial year.

Packsys Global has been part of the German Brückner Group with headquarters in Siegsdorf since 2011. The companies in the family-owned, medium-sized group develop, design and manufacture special machines and complete production systems for the international plastics and packaging industry with a total of around 2,000 employees at 21 locations. Other group companies are: The management holding and lead company Brückner Group GmbH, the provider of film stretching systems Brückner Maschinenbau GmbH & Co. KG, the service provider for film stretching technology Brückner Servtec GmbH and the manufacturer of machines for plastics processing Kiefel GmbH.
