The Schur Flexibles Group, headquartered in Baden, Austria is a European market leader in the flexible packaging industry. The company was created over the past five years by capiton and the CEO and co-owner Jakob A. Mosser, in the context of a buy-and-build concept.
Today, the group consists of twelve companies with eleven production sites in Germany, Finland, Denmark, Holland, Poland, Slovakia and Greece. In 2015, the group generated sales of almost € 370 million and employed more than 1100 staff.
The product portfolio of the company consists of specialized high value added flexible packaging solutions for the food, tobacco and pharmaceutical markets. The company also covers the entire value chain of the packaging industry, from raw material sourcing to extrusion, printing, lamination and converting.
capiton acquired the first company of the group, CFS Dixie GmbH, in December 2011. The nucleus of the group was then purchased in early 2012 with the take-over of the Schur Flexibles Division (four companies) from Schur International (Denmark). Five further businesses were acquired until the end of 2014 to create the Flexibles business that exists today. In 2014 PS Polymer Sourcing, Warburg Germany was founded as an additional separate business unit.
As part of the share sale signed now, the shareholders of Schur Flexibles have sold their shareholdings to Lindsay Goldberg, represented in Europe by Lindsay Goldberg Vogel, and the management team. The new owners intend to continue the successful buy and build concept through the acquisition of further target companies, some of which have already been identified.
