Mercredi 4 juillet 2012 - Acquisition de l'activité capsules de Verallia Russia
Acquisition of the closure activity of Verallia Russia
In line with its strategy of refocusing on its core business, Verallia – through the Kamyshinsky Steklotarny Zavod company – has just signed an agreement with the French Group Massilly, one of the leading producer of metal closures in the world, regarding its cap activity for food jars in Russia.
The agreement signed by Kamyshinsky, leader on the Russian market for production and sales of glass jars for food, establishes a cooperation period of 18 months with Linar, the Russian subsidiary of Massilly. At the end of this 18-month period, all lines and equipment for production of the caps will be transferred to the Linar plant in Nevinnomyssk, Stavropol region.
As a result of this agreement, the Russian market will benefit from the combined expertise of both companies in the field of cap and glass jar production.
"Following our recent acquisition of Linar in April 2012, a Russian based aerosol manufacturer, we are pleased to pursue the development of our activities in Russia. With this acquisition, Massilly follows its strategy to be a key player in all the fields of metal packaging and to develop its industrial footprint in the regions of the world showing a significant potential for growth."
