About Inmaco: Inmaco Solutions (Inmaco), established in the 1930s, develops, manufacturers and services packaging machinery for the production of sustainable cardboard and moulded pulp packaging products. The company is best known for its high-quality cardboard lid machines, increasingly used for consumer food packaging such as ice cream and butter, savory and sweet snacks and other food products. Furthermore, Inmaco has taken a leading position as European producer of conventional and thermoforming pulp moulding machinery for consumer and industrial applications. Inmaco provides both converters and brand owners with a comprehensive solution for paper and pulp packaging challenges.
Since 2017 a new management team led by Marthijn Broeils has accelerated growth and focused R&D initiatives towards high potential technologies. Today, the company is a leader in paper and moulded fibre technology and supplies the majority of global packaging converters. Marthijn Broeils: “Together with Intersaction we plan on reducing lead times by expanding production capacity and improving customer service. We will also continue to invest significantly in R&D and consider further acquisitions to expand its product offering.”
Joost Becker, Partner at Intersaction states: “Both the paperboard and pulp packaging markets are expected to grow significantly over the coming years on the back of increasing consumer awareness of the environmental impact of plastic packaging and legislative initiatives to reduce the use of plastics. With all major consumer brand owners aiming to use 100% recyclable and/or bio-degradable packaging by 2030, a significant shift towards paper and pulp packaging in consumer food products is taking place. Inmaco is well positioned to benefit from this trend through its proprietary developed reliable and high-performing lines of machinery and its proven track record at leading clients.”
