AB Graphic International acquires Flytec

May 23, 2006

AB Graphic International Ltd., of Bridlington, England, has acquired Flytec Spezialmaschinen GmbH, a German manufacturer of label applicators, dispensers and converting equipment. The acquisition includes the assets and entire Flytec product range.

“The acquisition is a natural and progressive fit for us,” says Mike Burton, managing director of AB Graphic International. “We have worked with Flytec for a number of years incorporating their optical vision inspection systems on our slitter/rewinders. The product range enables our group of companies to greatly broaden its offerings and service support without any real product overlap and provides a complimentary situation.”

The new company will be renamed AB Graphic International GmbH and will maintain its manufacturing facility in Baesweiler, Germany, Burton says. It will be headed by former owner Michael Leidgschwendner. Flytec manufactures pharmaceutical label inspection, label dispensers/applicators, booklet insertion machines, and vision camera inspection systems. The company has traded primarily in Germany and the Benelux countries.

AB Graphic International manufactures a range of converting equipment, including turret rewinders, inspection slitter/rewinders, label converting systems, and specialized equipment for digitally printed webs, such as laser diecutting, and RFID production.
