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

Marco Aengenvoort, Rotocontrol managing director says: "The acquisition of LeoMat marks an important milestone for the future of Rotocontrol. 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."

The former plant manager of LeoMat, Peer will oversee the Rotocontrol Service and Support, Research and Development, Engineering, Manufacturing and Purchasing departments.
