On 19th February Sacmi purchased Velomat, a leading designer and manufacturer of high-speed assembly machines since 1986. This takeover is part of a broader strategy by Sacmi -a leading provider of caps & closures solutions – to expand its product range in a sector characterised by fast-paced product and technology development.
Velomat provides advanced component assembly solutions, mainly for the closures, beauty & home and pharma sectors. Its reputation is based on an outstanding capacity to develop and build complex, flexible systems on hard-wearing, tested platforms.
Over the years, Velomat has strengthened its international standing and won over major customers, some of whom already do business with Sacmi, thus allowing for immediate sales and product synergies.
Even though the takeover was just a few days ago, the companies’ respective teams are already working alongside each other on numerous projects, demonstrating the soundness of the Sacmi Group’s strategic outlook.Thanks to economies of scale and access to an international Global Network, Velomat is set to develop innovative high-speed assembly automation solutions, completing Sacmi’s primary packaging product range.
