Inkmaker has acquired German dosing-systems maker, Swesa,  in another step  towards achieving its objective of offering total process-engineering to its clients.

Swesa produces dosing systems such as the FLEXO and SMARTMaster, which according to the company are robust and come equipped with needleless valves for  100% ink circulation.

Christophe Rizzo, CEO of the Inkmaker Group, EMEA and AMERICAS,  said, ‘Over the past few years Inkmaker has managed to successfully increase its business in Germany. The growth realised necessitated a next step and the acquisition of Swesa  is the logical outcome of it. Swesa’s knowledge and technology is a perfect fit for the Inkmaker Group and we will continue the production of its units in Germany.’

Roland Steinberg, managing director and owner of Swesa  explained, ‘I am very pleased with the outcome. Inkmaker is a world leader backed by industry 4.0 technology with a worldwide salesforce and service infrastructure. This is a significant moment in a strategic global plan, I am confident that, through Inkmaker’s leadership and by joining the Inkmaker family of brands, Swesa has guaranteed the continuity of its business and is set to strengthen and increase its market position.’

The acquisition is Inkmaker’s third since 2019 after acquiring the businesses of Rexson Systems and Vale-Tech in the United Kingdom, and again earlier this year in January with the purchase of Tecnopails in Italy.
