Calcinate/Darmstadt, 28th May 2018
Bergamo-based leading mechanical engineering company IMS TECHNOLOGIES S.p.A. announces at Print4All on May 29, 2018, that the group enters into a strategic partnership with LAEM IMS.
IMS TECHNOLOGIES is the international reference point in manufacturing innovative technologically outstanding machinery as well as engineering and service solutions. One of their focus includes the design and manufacturing of slitting and winding machines, which is marketed under the worldwide known brand GOEBEL IMS. Further brands are ROTOMAC, DELTAMOULD and KASPER.
LAEM IMS is an international company specialized in the manufacturing of machines for the converting and flexible packaging industries founded in 1972. The machine program includes twin-shaft machines and compact slitter rewinders as well as high automation machinery which are required for the processing of diverse materials such as paper, film, flexible packaging materials as well as coated materials. The company is based in Casale Monferrato (Piemonte/Italy).
In the future, customers will be able to purchase an expanded machine portfolio for primary, secondary and converting industries as well as industrial automation systems from one source. The cooperation between the two companies applies to Europe as well as to the international markets and includes research and development, production and the sharing of distribution channels.
IMS TECHNOLOGIES with its brand GOEBEL IMS and LAEM IMS stand for trust and innovation and live up to these values. „We will bundle our strengths and offer them to an expanded international customer base in form of attractive package solutions,” explains Daniele Vaglietti, CEO of IMS TECHNOLOGIES. “We are confident that with this partnership we shall be able to finally exploit our full potential, while improving further our technology, expanding our product range, increasing the efficiency of our operations in Casale and upgrading our service level for our existing and future customers. “Davide Malki, CEO of LAEM IMS adds. “With a strategic partner like IMS TECHNOLOGIES we gain the resources necessary to meet the demand of shorter innovation cycles and the desire for automation in processing of web-based materials.”
The key benefit of the strategic alliance is the enhancement of GOEBEL IMS’ product portfolio. The portfolio of LAEM IMS of slitting and special machinery – especially the twin-shaft and high productivity turret machines – perfectly complements the existing machine program for GOEBEL IMS. The strategic alliance is the beginning of a process in which the partners exchange their know-how and realize projects together. Further cooperation and later integration of LAEM IMS into IMS TECHNOLOGIES Group will also be subject of the alliance.
With its brand GOEBEL IMS, IMS TECHNOLOGIES Group is successfully providing machinery and services for paper and film processing industries. Since 1851, GOEBEL IMS is the leading provider of slitter rewinders for manufacturing and converting paper and board, film, alufoil, tobacco and aseptic packaging materials.
