Strengthening their presence in the growth market for corrugated board, Koenig & Bauer has acquired a 49% stake in Celmacch Group S.r.l.—manufacturer of high-board line flexo presses & rotary die-cutters for the corrugated board industry. Celmacch has over 40-years of experience for corrugated board, a segment that Koenig & Bauer also caters to with its complementary CorruCUT & CorruFLEX presses.

The Celmacch and Koenig & Bauer contract lays the foundations to collaborate on development & marketing activities on the growth market for corrugated board. For the first phase of the partnership, the focus will be placed on joint sales & service activities, further product development and expansion of the company’s assembly capacities. Koenig & Bauer has secured options to successively increase its stake in Celmacch beyond the initial 49%.

Corrugated board—the multi-talent on the packaging market—offers unrivalled versatility for a wide range of packaged goods, and accounts for the largest share of the overall market in terms of value. Subject to official approval from the Italian authorities, final closing is anticipated for September 2022.
