Schur Flexibles Group, a manufacturer of engineered packaging solutions based in Wiener Neudorf, Austria, has moved to further expand its network in Italy with the acquisition of Sidac SpA. No financial details about the transaction were disclosed.
Located in Forli, near Bologna, Sidac produces flexible packaging, mainly complex laminates supplied on reels, for the food, beverage, confectionery and animal feed segments.
Sidac’s portfolio is highly complementary to that of Schur Flexibles, as are the company’s sustainability ambitions, the companies said. Sidac has installed a high-performance facility for the recovery of the solvent used during its production processes and carefully monitors its emission levels into the environment, for one example.
