US converting equipment supplier CMD Corp. has acquired Caslano, Switzerland-based flex4, to increase its international footprint in Europe. 

Financial details of the transaction has not been disclosed.

The Appleton, Wisconsin-based manufacturer of high-performance film and package converting equipment said on 21 April that flex4 was “an established supplier of service support for all brands of pouch equipment throughout Europe. 

“Establishing a centrally located European center for quick-response service is an important goal for CMD,” explained Stephen Sakai, CMD president.  

The team at flex4, he added, has “extensive experience” in equipment service and technology.

Post-acquisition, flex4 will continue to service its existing customers as well as CMD pouch machinery customers, directly and through CMD agents.

The Swiss business has a special focus on pre-made pouch converting systems, with experience in key areas of industrial automation and manufacturing processes.
