Motan, Colortronic and Colortronic Systems, all three members of the Ralf Schneider Group of Konstanz, Germany, have announced that they will merge their global sales organizations into a single entity named Motan-Colortronic.

The three enterprises have been associated with each other since 2007 under the roof of the Ralf Schneider Holding. “Since that time various products have been harmonized and adapted to fit applications especially in the plastic processing and plastic production industries,” said Christian Soretz, head of strategic marketing at the Ralf Schneider Group. “This process will now be advanced with the establishment of a homogeneous sales network in order to offer to all global customers’ turnkey system solutions out of one hand, through the new Motan-Colortronic global sales organization.”

The merger into Motan-Colortronic is already proceeding in France, Germany, Italy and Switzerland. In North America, where only the Plainwell, Mich.-based Motan Inc. business is wholly owned, there will be no immediate change.

According to Soretz, there will be no job losses or facility closures as a result of the merger decision.
