AkzoNobel strengthens packaging coatings portfolio

By Gerald Ondrey |

AkzoNobel (Amsterdam, the Netherlands; www.akzonobel.com) has agreed to acquire the worldwide assets of Swedish-based company Lindgens Metal Decorating Coatings and Inks, including its majority stake in the Server Boya joint venture in Turkey. Financial details were not disclosed. Consultations with employee representatives will be held as and when appropriate. Closing is expected to take place in the third quarter of this year. The deal will add technology and expertise to AkzoNobel’s own Packaging Coatings activities, particularly in the market for inks printed on the outside of two-piece metal packaging. Established in 2005, Lindgens — which achieved 2009 sales of approximately €25 million — manufactures and markets complete system solutions of coatings and inks for the metal packaging industry. AkzoNobel’s global Packaging Coatings business is a leading supplier of internal and external coatings for beer and beverage cans, food cans, caps and closures and general line cans.
