On December 1st, 2010, HASSIA-REDATRON ownership changed to Kai Capital Management, Düsseldorf and John Dykema, principal partner of US packaging machine manufacturers Circle Packaging Machinery Inc. and Campbell Wrapper Corp. The two new owners have for many years been thoroughly familiar with the expectations of the customers and the challenges of the packaging machine industry.
Expansion of the packaging machine specialist’s product range and its Butzbach facility will continue unabated. The company’s focus is on expanding its vertical sachet, StickPack and tubular bagging machine portfolio and on upgrading the production facility.
In 2012, HASSIA-REDATRON, together with John Dykema, took over the majority share in EFFYTEC Packaging S.A., Barberá del Vallés (Barcelona). EFFYTEC manufactures horizontal packaging machines for stand up pouches (Doypacks) and sachets.
The product ranges of the two companies ideally complement each other and they also have a presence in the same markets, such as foods and pharmaceuticals.
HASSIA-REDATRON is the EFFYTEC agent in Germany, now offering its customers horizontal packaging machines as well.
