The acquisition by Coveris, which will strengthen its Labels & Board business, follows a three-year modernization program and investment in state-of-the-art equipment.
‘Introducing our Coveris strategy, we clearly committed ourselves to invest and grow our business in high potential areas. The acquisition of Amberley clearly underpins this endeavor. We are very much looking forward to a successful expansion of our labels capabilities and further develop the potential of our new facility,’ commented Jakob Mosser, CEO of Coveris.
