IS TO GIVE OURSELVES
A NEW VISION OF THE FUTURE
Stratus Packaging has taken a major strategic step.
Since 13 December, the group, one of the European leaders in self-adhesive labels, sleeves and IML, has taken over Koch AG, a Swiss specialist in self-adhesive labels since 1928.
For Isidore Leiser, founder and CEO of Stratus Packaging, this acquisition is in line with “our ambition to build a reference group in all printing solutions, while benefiting from Koch AG’s historical know-how in high quality finishes”. Thomas Borter, current head of Koch AG and now CEO of the Swiss subsidiary, is “certain that our complementarities will give a new dimension to the Stratus Packaging Group.
This transaction will allow Stratus Packaging to pursue its strategy of becoming a global player in the adhesive label industry.
Stratus Packaging, which is already present in Switzerland, is strengthening its position there and, with Koch AG, is gaining a strategic base for supporting its European customers. And the Stratus Group does not intend to stop there, since according to its CEO: “We remain attentive to all opportunities that would allow us to offer our customers the widest and most complete range of solutions”.
