ECM INDUSTRIES A/S has strengthened its focus engineering, with the acquisition of a leading expert in high-efficiency systems for the plastic molding industry. This is done with the acquisition of the Danish company CPM, CONTINATOR PLAST MACHINERY's activities, including CONTINATOR and STOUGAARD products.
Especially with CONTIONATOR plastic grinders, COLOR EXACT dosing units and STOUGAARD ceramic powder suckers, we can now service the world's largest players in special plastic molding.
With the acquisition, ECM INDUSTRIES A/S wants to strengthen its global position as a supplier of solutions to the global plastics industry. By having the production, testing and development IN HOUSE, as well as a strong service organization, we can seriously support our customers' production.
ECM INDUSTRIES A/S 'customers have a growing demand for complete solutions to reduce waste, thereby increasing production and at the same time having a greener footprint through reduced emissions and pollution.
Increased efficiency is a global megatrend and has a very strong potential in combating pollution and climate change. This acquisition is further proof that engineering and machine building is a growing core competence for ECM INDUSTRIES A/S. It provides us with a unified package so that we can provide our global markets with optimal solutions, and it greatly supports our customers' demand - no matter what technology they have chosen. This will enable further growth in the markets we already serve, and I am really looking forward to welcoming the highly regarded products from CONTINATOR, COLOR EXACT and STOUGAARD, says Esben Jaedicke Christiansen, CEO and Sales Director of ECM INDUSTRIES A/S.
CPM's former proprietor Dan Bjerregaard Hjortsø continues as an advisor on the products. Dan welcomes the fact that the company's products can continue to help existing and new customers focus on their production while at the same time the new agreement creates completely different and better market conditions.
CPM is given some completely different opportunities now that we are part of a large company. I have a clear expectation that we are now considering some of the very large projects with high-efficiency installations. And we are really looking forward to it, says Dan Bjerregaard Hjortsø.
Søren Jaedicke Christiansen, CEO and Production Director of ECM INDUSTRIES A/S states:
- We have a passion for quality and customer-focused products that fully meet the needs and requirements of each customer, so it is good for us to have the products that have the same focus. Making the products a part of ECM INDUSTRIES A/S means greater capacity, a wider customer base and opportunities for investment in innovation and market opportunities.
This acquisition is further proof that ONE STOP SUPPLIEMENT is a growing core area for ECM INDUSTRIES A/S. It provides us with a unified package so that we can provide our global markets with optimal solutions, and it greatly supports our customers' demand - no matter what technology they use.
The transfer takes place per April 1, 2020, but already the preliminary exercises are being done to incorporate CPM into ECM INDUSTRIES A/S.
