PackSys Global acquires MADAG Printing Systems

PackSys Global, a member of the Brückner Group, has acquired the Swiss company MADAG Printing Systems AG, with effect from January 1, 2013. MADAG is a leading manufacturer of automatic hot stamping machines for the packaging, cosmetic and automotive industries. The closures and tube markets in particular provide interesting synergies with PackSys Global’s core business in terms of technology and customer environment.

MADAG will continue to operate independently, pursuing its long-standing relationships with customers, suppliers and business partners. The name as well as the management team and the well-appointed factory (located in Fahrweid near Zurich) will also remain unchanged.

PackSys Global (www.packsysglobal.com) is a market leader for machinery for the production of laminate and extruded tubes, plastic and metal closures, aluminium tubes and mono-bloc aerosol cans.

The German Brückner Group (www.brueckner.com) is a worldwide leading supplier of innovative machines, tailor-made engineering solutions and services for the plastics and packaging industry.

PEPSO – Printed Electronics Products and Solutions
Special show at seven Düsseldorf trade fairs

Children’s books with light switches, wafer-thin luminous tiles and handbags with inbuilt mobile phone chargers – when printing meets electronics, many wishes may come true. The new methods promise diverse potential applications, inexpensive production and mass market appeal. Once confined to the laboratory, Printed Electronics has now become an industrialised field with huge market potential in a wide range of sectors.

Messe Düsseldorf is responding to this trend and organising the special show PEPSO – Printed Electronics Products and Solutions at seven relevant trade fairs at the Düsseldorf exhibition centre. “Printed Electronics is becoming attractive in many user sectors for which Messe Düsseldorf stages the respective flagship fairs. In establishing PEPSO, we have therefore given the subject a platform of its own and are integrating it in the trade fairs for the retail trade, glass processing, packaging, plastics, printing and medicine,” says Hans Werner Reinhard, Deputy Managing Director of Messe Düsseldorf, explaining the strategy. “We’re in an ideal position to offer producers of Printed Electronics marketing showcases for specific target groups.” PEPSO showings are planned at the following trade fairs: K 2013, COMPAMED 2013, EuroShop 2014, EuroCIS 2014, glasstec 2014, interpack 2014 and drupa 2016.
