Amut Acquires Dolci Bielloni
Amut S.p.A., Novara, Italy, has acquired Dolci Bielloni, Biassono, Italy. Since February 9, the company has been operating with the new company name Amut Dolci Bielloni with Riccardo Castello as general manager.
“Now two historical companies, Amut and Dolci Bielloni can create significant synergies together and become a major player on international markets,” comments Mauro Drappo, CEO of the AMUT group, the merger. The goal of Amut Dolci Biellon is to build a robust productive and financial organization to establish a solid Italian hub to compete with major international players. The newco will not only produce stretch film plants, but also continue the Bielloni tradition of flexographic printing machines, roller mills, laminators (wet or solventless), slitter-rewinders and, as Dolci Extrusion, it will continue to develop, build and sell its own stretch lines and also lines for polypropylene, bubble wrap, extrusion coating and lamination. Lastly, with projects heralding interesting developments, it will relaunch what has long been the showcase product line for Dolci: lines for agricultural film.
The new dimensions will be in evidence during Plast 2015 (Milan, 5-9 May). The Amut Group will be present at Plast with a major island, both in terms of dimensions (800 m2 ) and technologies on display. The group will display complete production lines, from flexible film extrusion to the extrusion and moulding of rigid products and thermoforming. An open house will be organized at the historical Dolci Bielloni plant in Biassono (Monza-Brianza) during the fair – with shuttle bus service to and from the fairgrounds – to demonstrate two stretch film lines in operation.
