Europe’s largest sustainability-focussed private equity investor, Ambienta, announced the acquisition of Mobert, which in combination with Amutec will create In.Pack Machinery.
In line with its strategy of applying environmental sustainability trends to investing, Ambienta invested in Amutec, a leading manufacturer of machinery to produce biodegradable and recycled bags, in August 2019. Amutec subsequently acquired the business operations of Scae Europe in June 2020, to enlarge its addressable markets and geographical reach.
Mobert, founded in 1959 in Castellanza (Varese, Italy), is a highly reputable player in the bag-making machinery market, with a product offering matching and extending that of Amutec in sectors such as waste, fruit and vegetable and industrial applications. Its activities also span the high-growth segments of food and pet food packaging.
Mobert’s product offering embeds a strong environmental profile. The company is co-leader with Amutec in the design and manufacturing of machines processing recycled and bio-compostable polymers, which account for over 80% of machines sold in 2019, thus fostering the adoption of more sustainable alternatives to virgin plastics in a variety of end-markets. This is complemented by innovative solutions in flexible packaging which allow for up to 70% reduction in plastic usage when compared with traditional rigid packaging.
The combination of Amutec, Mobert and Scae creates a group with a unique offering on the market in terms of product breadth, geographical reach and track record, with leading market shares in a number of segments and regions and the ambition to become the supplier of choice for the most demanding customers globally.
The group will benefit from the ongoing involvement of Mobert shareholders Roberto Trezzi, Simona Trezzi and Maurizio Toniato, both as significant shareholders and managers.
