The purchase, Barry-Wehmiller’s first within France, expands the firm’s packaging platform to six separate operating companies and escalates the capital equipment and engineering consulting firm’s reach within the growing global yogurt industry
Arcil, with EUR 120 million in revenue this year, employs approximately 350 people between its two Paris operations. A worldwide leader in Form-Fill-Seal (FFS) technology, its innovative machines use heat to convert plastic film into custom-formed cups that are filled then sealed within integrated, cost-effective lines. Arcil machines can be found in more than 40 countries worldwide.
“Arcil’s expertise in providing cutting-edge, efficient packaging solutions is highly complementary to our diverse portfolio of packaging companies,” said Bob Chapman, Barry-Wehmiller CEO.
