Pursuing its Buy & Build strategy, EOL Packaging Experts (EOL) has made a second add‐on acquisition by investing in BMS Maschinenfabrik (BMS) in Pfatter, Bavaria. EOL, composed of A+F Automation + Fördertechnik (A+F) in Kirchlengern 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.
Together with A+F as a provider of integrated and innovative systems solutions for secondary and tertiary packaging, as well as S‐K as a manufacturer of end‐of‐line packaging machines in the US market, BMS will 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.
