Megaflex, a Netherlands-based self-adhesive label converter, has been acquired by Optimum Group.
The company becomes the eighth acquisition by Optimum Group, a leading Benelux converting group in the field of printed and blank self-adhesive labels, banding labels, shrink sleeves and flexible packaging. Its portfolio of companies includes Etiket Nederland, Vila Etiketten, Speciaal drukkerij Max Aarts, W&R Etiketten, Belona, Megaflex (all based in the Netherlands) and EPB and ASQ based in Belgium.
The current management of Megaflex, Jan and Bart van Limpt, will continue at the company, and Megaflex will also remain in its current 5,000sqm premises in Bladel, Noord-Brabant.
The addition of Mega Flex is said to fit within the multi-year strategic growth of Optimum Group focused on product diversification, expansion, internationalization and further increasing service levels.
Megaflex distinguishes itself in the market by providing very short delivery times. These orders are produced on flexo and digital printing machinery from HP Indigo. In recent years, the converter has also shown strong growth in Belgium and Germany.
‘We are both convinced of the added value of Megaflex for Optimum Group,’ said Jan van Limpt, director and founder of Megaflex. ‘The very short delivery times will help us to further increase our service level. The focus on digital printing technology and the successful expansion towards Belgium and Germany is also an optimal addition.’
‘In terms of culture, there is also a good fit in which Jan van Limpt's experience within the Optimum Group Steering Committee is very welcome,’ said Bart de Boer, CEO of Optimum Group. ‘We are therefore confident in the future possibilities of our combined group of companies.’
