Packaging Solutions

Bobst has announced the completion of the proceedings relating to Bobst Italia SpA’s successful final tender offer for the acquisition of the assets of Officine Meccaniche Giovanni Cerutti SpA and Cerutti Packaging Equipment SpA, including the service company 24/7 Cerutti Service Srl, (Cerutti).

Based in San Giorgio Monferrato, Bobst Italia is the company’s worldwide centre of excellence for gravure printing, laminating, and coating technologies for the flexible packaging industry.

Gruppo Cerutti was founded in 1920 in Casale Monferrato, in the northwest of Italy, and grew into a world renowned manufacturer of rotogravure printing presses for packaging, publishing, and specialty printing and converting equipment.

Thirty Cerutti employees will join Bobst Italia’s personnel at the company site in San Giorgio Monferrato.

‘We are very pleased that the proceedings have finally come to a completion, ending a period of uncertainty for the Cerutti stakeholders locally and worldwide,’ commented Davide Garavaglia, general manager and head of product lines gravure, vacuum, coating and laminating at Bobst Italia.

‘As a company, Bobst Italia is characterised by financial and social sustainability and, as such, is able to create value in the long term. Following the completion, we will be able to integrate into our organisation the Cerutti technology along with its technical experts adding to our existing know how and capabilities. It also means that we can now provide Bobst’s high level of service and support to Cerutti machines installed worldwide.’
