With effect from 1 January 2021, the Nortrup, Germany-based Delkeskamp has purchased the assets, order book and staff of the specialist offset-printed packaging producer Friedrich Freund GmbH Kartonagenfabrik, located in Nordhausen.
“We see the acquisition as an ideal addition for our production processes in the corrugated board business unit,” says Stefan Delkeskamp, Managing Director. “In this way, we consolidate consulting competence, technical know-how and the existing order volume of both organisations.”
Since its formation in 2007, the Nordhausen site of Friedrich Freund GmbH Kartonagenfabrik has steadily developed into a reliable supplier for offset-printed packaging, mainly made of corrugated board.
“With the Delkeskamp group of companies, we have found a buyer to whom the Friedrich Freund GmbH Kartonagenfabrik fits perfectly”, comments Hans-Ulrich Schroeder, one of the two Managing Directors of Friedrich Freund GmbH Kartonagenfabrik.
“As we move forward, the acquired site will be Delkeskamp Group’s competence centre for offset-printing”, confirms Stefan Delkeskamp. “With our own packaging development department including a laboratory, as well as extensive technical and consulting skills on site at our customers’ premises, we start 2021 filled with confidence.”
