Müller-Fabrique de Moules SA based in Conthey, Switzerland, is joining forces with the industrial investment group CGS based in Pfäffikon, Switzerland, to strategically bolster its presence in international markets. CGS is making a major investment in Müller IML and together with the owner Udo Gröber, it will catalyze the company’s development. Add-on acquisitions will build the company into a solid and technologically pioneering industrial group operating worldwide.
The market for thin-walled packaging for food and non-food products is expanding, making it more and more challenging to stay at the head of the pack. At the same time, the trend towards global supply chains is growing hand in hand with the consolidation of this market’s various suppliers. This explains the fact that many consumer goods and packaging producers are now internationally active. In this environment, robotics and injection mold manufacturers can also exploit the new opportunities generated when they pursue strategies to spread their operations across multiple continents. Cooperating closely with customers on-site speeds up processes and helps companies like Müller IML meet expectations for product development even better. Moreover, flexible service rendered by specialists on-site ensures productivity. As a globally leading supplier providing systems, molds and robots for thin-walled packaging production, Müller IML is eager to seize these opportunities. To do so, the company’s sole owner Udo Gröber and CGS have come together to jointly build Müller IML’s future success worldwide. Thanks to add-on acquisitions, a well-built international industrial group will emerge, operating in the key thin-walled packaging markets and consistently consolidating its technological lead.
H. Müller-Fabrique de Moules SA was founded in 1959. It develops and produces injection molds and robots for thin-wall packaging manufacturers in the food and non-food industries. Back in 1993, the firm already specialized in top-quality complete systems. It is also a renowned pioneer in in-mold-labeling applications.
