Europe: Barry-Wehmiller performs 86th acquisition

Only three years after joining Barry-Wehmiller, Synerlink has acquired Sogameca, a manufacturer of precision machines and cutting tool technology based in Le Mans, France.

Synerlink is a supplier of packaging technology for the food industry and fresh dairy products.

The addition of Sogameca extends Synerlink’s production capacity for its Aprium end-of-line business and enhances its spare parts and cutting and sharpening services.

Sogameca is Synerlink’s fourth acquisition since joining Barry-Wehmiller in 2013.

In 2014, Synerlink acquired Axone Systems of Troyes, France; Dinieper of Sao Paulo, Brazil (2015); and Dairy Pack of Logroño, Spain (2016).

With Sogameca as its 86th acquisition, Barry-Wehmiller, grows to more than 11,000 team members among 100 locations worldwide.

Since 1987 when it began its acquisition strategy, the privately-held firm has experienced significant growth, anticipating revenues to surpass US$2.3 billion in 2016.
