Coesia Group going steady after completing the acquisition of Atlantic Zeiser’s card personalization and packaging divisions, alongside taking a majority stake in Tritron, to focus on opportunities in digital in-line printing.
Alpha Ink & Printing Materials Trading Co. L.L.C., based in Dubai is their agent/distributor for UAE and Gulf.
Coesia Group is a globally active business consisting of 21 innovation-based industrial and packaging companies. The group is headquartered in Bologna, Italy. Joining the group as an independent unit, Atlantic Zeiser maintains its headquarters in Emmingen-Liptingen, Germany.
Operating independently in the market while simultaneously benefitting from synergy effects from the takeover, such as extensive market access offered by Coesia Group, is identified as presenting a special opportunity to accelerate growth.
During the completion of acquisition, Thomas Obitz has taken up the position of managing director at Atlantic Zeiser.
Tritron was founded in 1991 as a manufacturer of inks and colorants in Battenberg, Germany. It had been an affiliate of Atlantic Zeiser Group since 1998. Obitz noted that the parallel acquisition of Atlantic Zeiser’s shares in Tritron has been a decisive factor in the integration into the Coesia Group.
Atlantic Zeiser’s activities in bank note serialization and individualization of security documents are not part of the acquisition, and remain in the Orell Füssli Group. They will operate as Zeiser GmbH within Orell Füssli.
