Italy-based extrusion, thermoforming and recycling equipment maker Amut SpA has acquired Dolci Bielloni, a packaging equipment maker also headquartered in Italy.
Dolci Bielloni will now be known as Amut Dolci Bielloni.
Dolci Bielloni manufactures printing and slitting rewinding machines, blown and cast films for different types of multilayer film, and coating and laminating lines. The company’s film lines – cast and blown for flexible films – produce a range of products comprising stretch film, silage, barrier, technical, medical, diapers and masking.
Novara, Italy-based Amut Group is a producer of lines delivering rigid products such as foils, sheets, pipes, profiles and thermoforming items.
“We believe that this merger represents the completion of a process we began in 2011 with the entrance of Fondo Italiano di Investimento (an investment fund) into our shareholder structure to allow Amut to grow through external mergers and gain a more important stature,” said Mauro Drappo, CEO of the Amut group. “This process then continued with the Amut-Comi merger in the field of thermoforming and Amut-Ecotech in recycling.”
The financial terms of the deal have not been disclosed.
