Manter takes an equity stake in Solidtec

Recently Manter and Solidtec shareholders reached agreement on the participation of Manter in Solidtec, manufacturer of palletising systems. The share transaction generates a close cooperation between the two companies, which results in an even better total solution for customers in the field of weighing, packaging and palletising. Although both companies will continue operating independently, the customer will benefit from even better total-solutions.

End-of-line total-solutions provider “For many years Manter sees an increasing demand for end-of-line solutions, wherein machine integration and data exchange are fundamental. Sharing knowledge and data is crucial here, but not obvious. The close cooperation with Solidtec enables us to integrate our machines more efficiently into palletising systems. This gives us the opportunity to offer an integral solution with our customer as the ‘big winner'”, says Herman Wehkamp, managing director of Manter.

Cooperation is a logical choice For Solidtec, the cooperation with Manter comes at the right time. Edwin Moerdijk, managing director of Solidtec: “We have grown rapidly both in turnover and number of employees in the past few years. In order to take the next step in this growing process, the cooperation with Manter is a logical choice. The synergy between the companies is obvious and allows us to serve our customers better.”

Sales and service separate Although both companies will cooperate behind the scenes, the dealer- and agent networks remain unchanged. “Of course we will investigate how we can reinforce one another in the future, but not before consulting our existing dealers. They have greatly contributed to where both companies stand today, we want to respect that”, ends Herman Wehkamp
