Rotocontrol has announced the acquisition of Germany-based LeoMat, a major German supplier of processing machines for adhesive labels, foils and paper.

With this acquisition, we have significantly increased our manufacturing and engineering capabilities which would be difficult to do so quickly organically. The company is now even more strongly positioned to offer converters around the world a well-rounded product portfolio based on German design and manufacturing."
