Comexi Group Acquires ACOM Business Unit
Last June, an agreement was announced between Comexi Group and ACOM which allowed Comexi Converting Solutions, an Italian subsidiary of Comexi Group, to offer its range of gravure presses together with the know-how and technology of ACOM. This arrangement also included the provision of technical assistance for installed machines.
As of December 15, 2010, Comexi Converting Solutions has completed the final acquisition of tangible and intangible assets of ACOM, Srl, “which has a technological line entirely synergistic with the Group's activity,” according to Manel Xifra, President of Comexi Group, who adds that “we strongly value the sales development of this line.”
This business area of Comexi Group, led by Gian Vito Schiavi, will be based in Podenzano (Piacenza, Italy) and will rely on its over 50 years experience and knowledge in manufacturing, rotogravure presses and customer service.
In the context of this new activity in the supply of gravure presses, the ACOM brand will be initially maintained, although eventually it will be fully integrated in the broader offer of Comexi Group.
