Marvaco, the Finnish packaging repro house, has increased its capacity and operations with the acquisition of Swedish company FlexoPartner AB. 

FlexoPartner, operating in Sunne and in Örebro in Sweden, is a packaging repro house and manufacturer of flexo printing plates and laser engraved sleeves.

The acquisition came into effect on 1 March and the previous owners and employees will continue to participate in developing the company’s operations. Managing director Leif Backman will continue to run the company.

‘Marvaco is an esteemed and award-winning company and the industry’s leader in quality, and we have known them for many years. I believe that joining Marvaco offers us an opportunity to grow and refine our operations in Sweden, as well,’ said Mr Backman.

‘Our desire and need to better serve the brand and printing clients operating in the packaging industry in the Nordic region as well as the capacity increase is our reason for the investments. The acquisition strengthens Marvaco’s operations in Sweden, especially in the corrugated board industry and laser engraving. What FlexoPartner and Marvaco have in common is the leading quality in the industry and successful client co-operation,’ stated Kai Lankinen, managing director of Marvaco.
