German packaging companies Anton Debatin and Riba have established a new joint enterprise that is to operate under the name Deriba Group. Total sales generated by the new entity, which will employ a workforce of 400, amount to more than €100m. The ties between the companies were already close. By joining forces in a group structure, the companies aim to leverage the strengths of both, generating synergistic effects in the form of general process optimisation and access to a broader range of customers, as well as profiting from economies of scale.
Anton Debatin and Riba are equal partners in the Deriba Group, which further integrates Debatin SARL (Hoenheim, France), pfc premium film company GmbH (Hamburg, Germany), HVB Hoch-Vakuum-Beschichtungs GmbH (Berlin, Germany) and Berec GmbH (Werneuchen, Germany).
The Deriba Group will coordinate all business activities, including unified marketing operations for the extensive product and service range. It will also increase the transfer of know-how throughout the product development process.
The Deriba Group will make its first public appearance at FachPack (Nuremberg, 25th-27th September 2018, hall 7/7-618).
