Axium Group buys KKT to expand presence in Germany

Axium Group buys KKT to expand presence in Germany

The Axium Group (Andrézieux-Bouthéon, France) has just finalized the acquisition of KKT Kaller Kunststoff Technik GmbH (Kall, Germany) from Heinz Glass & Plastic group (Kleintettau, Germany).

The Axium Group specializes in the manufacturing of global solutions in plastic packaging for cosmetic, food and pharmaceutical markets.  With two production sites in France, Acti Pack and Loire Plastic Industrie, and a site in Czech Republic, Acti Pack CZ, the PET packaging provider, which generates about €30 million in turnover, is focused on two segments: manufacturing by thermoplastic injection of standard or specific closure solutions and manufacturing of injection bi- oriented blowmolded standard or specific jars and bottles in PET.

Already situated in Germany through a sales office, Axium strengthens its industrial and commercial presence locally, confirming its pan-European presence as PET packaging provider.

KKT, whose turnover is around €17 million is specialized in the manufacturing of packaging solutions by injection stretch blowmolding, extrusion blowmolding and co-extrusion blowmolding. The company has a production site in Kall and delivers to food, cosmetic and chemical industries. KKT sold more than 140 million products in 2015.

This acquisition allows Axium to offer one of the widest ranges of standard PET jars and bottles. To meet all customers' demands for their specific development, the company delivers a wide choice of standard preform and machine platform. This offer is complemented by a range of standard caps and lids and reinforced today by a packaging range in HDPE & PP in complete synergy thus meeting all customers' needs.
