Coperion and LINXIS will combine their strengths and capabilities as global suppliers to the food and health industries. LINXIS Group's highly specialised equipment and strong reputation as a leading supplier for mixing, ingredient automation, and portioning solutions directly align with Coperion's growth strategy for food applications.
The combined global customer service resources provide an enhanced support network to our customers. Additionally, multiple state-of-the-art test centers are available world-wide for product development and proof of concept trials.
“We believe LINXIS Group and their brands' strong reputation within the food, pharma, and cosmetics industry enhances Coperion's existing capabilities and aligns with our growth strategy. Together, we'll have strong production and engineering locations throughout the world. By leveraging the combined capabilities of both organizations, we will be able to offer more comprehensive processing solutions and create significant value for our customers,” says Kevin Buchler.
Tim Cook adds, “We look forward to having a dedicated and committed partner at our side, that will support and enhance the growth path we started several years ago. We are convinced that the combination of both companies' technologies and our global sales and service networks provide excellent prospects for the future.”
