Baden, 13th February 2018 – Schur Flexibles Group, Baden/Austria, continues to grow and acquires from the Clondalkin Group, Utrecht, Netherlands, the following producers of premium packaging: Cats-Hänsel with the two sites Cats Flexibles Packaging B.V., Rotterdam/Netherlands and Hänsel Flexible Packaging GmbH, Freital/Germany, as well as Nimax B.V., Elst/Netherlands.
