LeoMat Rebranded as ROTOCONTROL

Friday, February 05, 2016

Press release from the issuing company

Resulting from the successful integration since the acquisition four years previously. 

LINAU, Germany – ROTOCONTROL, a manufacturer of leading-edge label slitter/rewinder inspection and finishing machines today announced the LeoMat line of finishing machines are now rebranded as ROTOCONTROL. This decision follows a successful integration of the LeoMat suite of products into the ROTOCONTROL offering since the acquisition four years ago.

For over 20 years, the German company LeoMat engineered and manufactured finishing equipment for slitting, rewinding, inspection, and die cutting, for a range of labels including self-adhesive, digital and booklet. There are LeoMat installations throughout Europe, Asia, South America, and Australia, and the company built a solid global distribution network, with many agents representing ROTOCONTROL today. In March 2012 ROTOCONTROL announced its acquisition of LeoMat, which combined the two company’s strengths in German engineering and design of leading-edge label finishing machinery.

The previously LeoMat branded range of finishing machines will continue to be sold and manufactured by ROTOCONTROL, incorporating advanced electronic components and servo technology. Service and support of installed LeoMat machines will also be provided by ROTOCONTROL. New executive appointments to support this consolidation are Peer Gronkowsky as chief technology officer and Cristof Vogler as chief financial officer.

Marco Aengenvoort, managing director of ROTOCONTROL comments: “It has been a lucrative four years since the acquisition of LeoMat. In addition to growth in sales, our product portfolio broadened with machines for finishing digitally created labels and production of end-to-end booklet labels, the agent network expanded and strengthened, and our combined resources resulted in enhanced product designs. Next-generation product launches for our booklet solution (BL series) built with a Longford OS700X triple motor surge feeder, and digital machine (DT series) with semi-rotary print units and register lamination have proven successful. This rebranding under the reputable ROTOCONTROL brand reinforces our commitment in providing premium finishing equipment to narrow web printers and converters.”
