German investment company Thyssen’sche Handelsgesellschaft m.b.H (THG) has acquired controlling interest in Anomatic from Brookstone Partners. Anomatic specializes in colour anodized aluminium packaging solutions and also provides laser engraving, embossing and screen-printing services. The company runs state-of-the-art facilities in Ohio, Connecticut and Suzhou, China. The financial terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.
“Since our investment in Anomatic in 2005, the company has grown from one facility to four worldwide and has more than doubled in revenue,” said Brookstone Partners Managing General Partner Michael Toporek. “Anomatic has a very exciting future ahead, and we wish the company and its team continued success.”
The current management team will remain in place. Anomatic President and CEO Scott Rusch, who will remain CEO of the company, said the transaction would further enhance Anomatic’s position as a leader in anodized aluminium packaging to the cosmetics and health and beauty industries. “It also presents future value opportunities for our customers as we make new investments in technologies to expand the company’s capabilities,” Rusch said.
THG owns a wide range of production and trading businesses throughout the world, including a 100 percent stake in Thomas Group, another company serving the cosmetics and personal care industry. Managing Director of THG, Juergen Heite, says both companies offer complementary products and services, and customers will benefit from THG’s strategic investment in Anomatic.
