Darmstadt, Calcinate and West Hartford, Conn.—As of March 9, 2015, the German company GOEBEL Schneid- und Wickelsysteme GmbH and IMS have integrated their business activities to become GOEBEL IMS. Both companies are high-tech slitter rewinder manufacturers and were entities of the IMS Deltamatic Group headquartered in Italy. The successful merger of the two companies represents the consistent implementation of future-oriented corporate management within the IMS Deltamatic Group. Matik, Inc. is the exclusive North American distributor of GOEBEL IMS converting machines.


Andreas Hollman, CEO of GOEBEL Schneid- und Wickelsysteme GmbH states, “Since GOEBEL became part of IMS Deltamatic Group in 2013, we have engaged in numerous exchanges with our Italian colleagues and have managed to form a tight-knit group. Now what belongs together, will also grow together, and we are looking forward to the next step in our company history. It is thanks to this merger that we can combine our international sales channels and provide an improved service to our customers with an enlarged product portfolio.”


GOEBEL IMS offers a large spectrum of machines for the conversion of paper and board, plastic film and alufoil, cigarette papers, aseptic packaging materials and other special materials. The three production sites based in Italy, Germany and the United States employ approximately 300 staff members.

Both GOEBEL and IMS can look back on a long and successful history in mechanical engineering, one which will be further strengthened now. Following the merger, Daniele Vaglietti, CEO of the IMS Deltamatic Group, is aware of the responsibility for the staff and says, “We are looking forward to the coming months and years with our experienced teams at our sites in Germany, Italy, China and the United States with the same corporate strength. We now unite the best: precision, reliability, innovative strength and design.”


The business activities of the consortium are led by Raffaele Ghilardi, President of IMS Deltamatic Group; Daniele Vaglietti, CEO of the same Italian group and Andreas Hollmann, CEO of GOEBEL Schneid-und Wickelsysteme GmbH, Darmstadt.
