Mauser Acquires Greif Plastic Drum and IBC Business in Brazil
Mauser Group, a global specialist in industrial packaging based in Bruehl, Germany, acquired the plastic drum and IBC business of Greif in Sao Paulo, Brazil. The acquisition was effective May 1, 2015 with the newly added business providing Mauser a broader customer base to supply its industry leading line of plastic packaging as well as its line of IBCs.
The investment made by Mauser to acquire Greif’s business not only reaffirms Mauser’s commitment to the Brazilian marketplace but also to growing its operations globally. “We are very pleased with the addition of these plastic drum and IBC customers,” remarked Ricardo Goldenberg, President and CEO of Mauser Brazil. “We see tremendous opportunity here in Brazil and plan to continue our strategy of growing across all our market segments.”
Currently, Mauser is working with customers to ensure an easy transition to “Mauser-produced” products. This transition will involve identifying what specifications customers are currently using today and providing them with a Mauser product that will achieve the same if not better performance than they received before. This transition to “Mauser-produced” solutions will be completed by early June 2015.
