Sanner packaging company acquires Plastina Holding

Emergence of the global market leader for effervescent packaging

Sanner, a manufacturer of high-quality primary plastic packaging and medical devices, has acquired Plastina Holding, parent company of Jaco, based in Kirchheim, Germany.

Through the merger, Sanner now advances to the global market leader for effervescent packaging.

Sanner is known as market leader for desiccant packaging in the global pharmaceutical and healthcare sector. The company Jaco is one of the leading manufacturers of printed and unprinted plastic tubes for effervescent tablets.

“Our product portfolios complement each other ideally,” said Dirk Mähr, Managing Director of Sanner. “As a result of the merger, we have significantly strengthened our market position and have become the world market leader for effervescent packaging.”

In 2016, Sanner generated annual sales of €63.7m while Jaco achieved around €13m.

Bundling competencies

Tharcisse Decker, Managing Director of Jaco, said:

“Together, we offer our customers one of the most comprehensive ranges of tubes and closures, combined with numerous decoration possibilities.”

“This allows us to operate as a system supplier in the future.”

“Apart from the strong French and European market, we are now also able to enter new markets such as the Middle East or Africa more effectively,” Dirk Mähr adds.

Moreover, Jaco’s experience in printing technology can be used for new products, while Sanner’s competencies in research and development are of great advantage for joint projects.

The acquisition will have no effect on the employees or the production of both companies. Customers will be served by the sites in Bensheim and Kirchheim.

The company name Jaco will remain unchanged for the time being. The former owners of Jaco have withdrawn from business. The parties agreed on keeping the purchase price confidential.
