Synerlink acuires fill-seal manufacturer Ermi

March 30, 2017

Synerlink, supplier of packaging technology for the food industry, is expanding with the acquisition of Ermi, a manufacturer of aseptic fill-seal bottle and cup fillers for juices, among other applications. Ermi is based in Dreux, France.

Synerlink offers form-fill-seal and fill-seal machines for cups and bottles, end-of-line solutions, packaging line integration and aftermarket support (spare parts, field service and equipment upgrades).

Ermi is Synerlink’s fifth acquisition since joining global capital equipment leader Barry-Wehmiller in 2013. In 2014, Synerlink acquired Axone Systems of Troyes, France; in 2015, Dinieper of São Paulo, Brazil; and in 2016, Dairy Pack of Logroño, Spain, and Sogameca of Le Mans, France.

Since 1987, when Barry-Wehmiller began its acquisition strategy, the privately held firm, headquartered in St. Louis, Missouri, has experienced significant growth, with more than 11,000 team members in 100-plus locations worldwide, and revenues of $2.5 billion. Ermi is the company’s 88th acquisition.
