A new packaging line engineering firm can make an “immediate impact” on the market, according to the firm’s president and managing director.

Gebo Cermex, groups the brands Gebo and Cermex together and Marc Aury, leader of the company, said it has the resources to be “first in line” in the packaging industry.

Cermex work in overwrapping and end-of-line equipment for fast-moving consumer goods and Gebo focusses on conveying and material handling with more than five decades of experience.

Gebo Cermex will cover a variety of sectors, from beverages and food, home and personal care and pharmaceutical products.

End-of-line solutions

The firm will offer solutions including line-integration to conveying, feeding systems and tunnel machines to overwrapping, packing and palletizing systems and help clients to optimise productivity as well as offering after-sales service.

In an ever evolving industry Aury said he was confident the new firm could make its mark.

“Our industry gets more complex by the day, and we recognised the need for a brand capable of inspiring confidence, a company with the precise combination of experience and innovation needed to make businesses grow.

“Our international coverage, proven know-how and peerless client support allow us to handle projects of all sizes, in an unprecedented range of sectors,” he added.

“We treat every project individually, helping our clients to turn up the value and boost their productivity whatever the size of their operation.”

About the company

Aury will be joined by current Cermex managing director Marc Ville, who becomes vice president of operations of the new company.

Headquartered in Reichstett, near Strasbourg, France, the group has more than 15 commercial facilities and manufacturing sites worldwide, with over 37,000 installations operational and an annual turnover of €320m.

Gebo Cermex will operate as part of the Sidel Group, but with considerable autonomy, confirmed the new venture.

Aury added that the goal was to draw on the past in order to shape the future of the industry, offering clients the broadest possible range of services.

Cermex has grown steadily thanks to a technological

innovation in the fields of case-packing, shrink-wrapping and palletizing and acquisitions, including the buy-out of robotic palletizing experts Newtec Case Palletizing in May last year.
