The Edelmann Group, a leading global manufacturer of paper and board packaging solutions for the beauty care, health care and consumer brands markets, has announced the completion of the acquisition of100% of the shares in Elanders Beijing Printing Co., Ltd, an entity formerly owned by Elanders AB (publ). The new site, which is part of the global Edelmann network of 21 sites, now operates as Edelmann (Beijing) Co., Ltd. The new entity establishes a strong foothold into the production of packaging solutions, primarily folding cartons and rigid boxes, for the beauty care and consumer brands markets in China, thereby enhancing the existing production site in Beijing, Edelmann (Beijing) Pharmaceutical Packaging& Printing, Ltd., which currently serves the health care market.

“Completing this process today is a tremendous success for Edelmann, allowing us to enter the beauty care and consumer brands markets in a region that was previously only serving the health care market. We take great pride in offering the same high quality products and services globally and we can’t wait to see the new opportunities that lie ahead. We are sending a warm welcome to all new team members of our truly diverse network,” says Oliver Bruns, Edelmann Group CEO.

The second site in China is located in close proximity to the current facility and will increase the overall Edelmann Group network to 21 sites with more than 3,000 employees worldwide.

“This has been an exciting process and we are eager to be a part of the global Edelmann network. We have experienced a smooth transition into the Edelmann Group and look forward to pushing new boundaries and continuing on a path of innovative packaging solutions,” says Kevin Rogers, Managing Director of Edelmann(Beijing) Co., Ltd..
