(from left to right: Ralf Tiemann, Managing Director Sanner Kunshan China; Jürgen Sanner, Shareholder Sanner; Sibylle Rippmann, former owner of Jaco SA; Tharcisse Decker, Managing Director Jaco SA; Dirk Mähr, Managing Director Sanner GmbH)

Acquisition of Jaco enables Sanner to operate as a system supplier.

Sanner has acquired Plastina Holding AG, the parent company of Jaco S.A., based in Kirchheim, Germany. Through the merger, Sanner now advances to the global market leader for effervescent packaging.

Sanner is known as market leader for desiccant packaging in the global pharmaceutical and healthcare sector. Jaco S.A. is a leading manufacturer of printed and unprinted plastic tubes for effervescent tablets. "Our product portfolios complement each other ideally," says Dirk Mähr, Managing Director of Sanner. "As a result of the merger, we have significantly strengthened our market position and have become the world market leader for effervescent packaging.” In 2016, Sanner generated annual sales of 63.7 million euro, whereas Jaco achieved around 13 million euro.

"Together, we offer our customers one of the most comprehensive ranges of tubes and closures, combined with numerous decoration possibilities. This allows us to operate as a system supplier in the future,” says Tharcisse Decker, Managing Director of Jaco. “Apart from the strong French and European market, we are now also able to enter new markets such as the Middle East or Africa more effectively,” Dirk Mähr adds. Moreover, Jaco’s experience in printing technology can be used for new products, while Sanner’s competencies in research and development are of great advantage for joint, innovative projects.

The acquisition will have no effect on the employees or the production of both companies. Customers will be served by the sites in Bensheim and Kirchheim. The company name Jaco SA will remain unchanged for the time being. The former owners of Jaco S.A have withdrawn from business. The parties agreed on keeping the purchase price confidential.
