NORD Holding and management sell GOEBEL Schneid- und Wickelsyteme GmbH to strategic investor IMS Deltamatic S.p.A. from Italy

02.07.2013

After over 10 years, NORD Holding and GOEBEL are to go separate ways. NORD Holding acquired GOEBEL Schneid- und Wickelsysteme GmbH in 2003 and developed it in partnership with the management.

Based in Darmstadt, GOEBEL Schneid- und Wickelsysteme GmbHmanufactures slitter rewinders for processing paper, film and foil. The machines are mainly used in the manufacturing process directly after the production facility for primary and secondary cutting in order to prepare paper and film rolls for further processing, eg in printing machines. The company is a strongly positioned technologically having already sold about 9,000 GOEBEL cutting machines worldwide. The global market is served with sales of approximately € 25 million and an export rate of over 90 %, with China currently accounting for the largest export market.

Based in Presezzo/Bergamo, IMS Deltamatic is a diversified engineering group with a sales volume of approximately € 50 million. One of the focal points is the manufacturing of cutting machines for the converting industry. "The machinery of IMS Deltamatic will be downstreamed in the value chain to the machines of GOEBEL and used in other market segments, so that the product portfolio is well complemented" said GOEBEL CEO Dr. Enderle. "With GOEBEL our group is even more powerful. With a sales volume of approximately € 75 million, the IMS group will become the global number two in the market for cutting and winding systems" explained Raffaele Ghilardi, owner and CEO of IMS.

"From NORD Holding's perspective, IMS is the ideal partner for GOEBEL. With this complementary addition of both companies', the market position is substantially strengthened. Both IMS and GOEBEL will benefit from considerable synergies. We are particularly pleased that after a 10-year holding period the investment may be successfully transferred. We had a stabilising influence, especially during the economically difficult years of 2009 and 2010. Our long-term corporate structure has once again proved itself to be outstanding" said Robert Pauli, responsible for GOEBEL at NORD Holding.
