The Deal

Tilgmann Group is a Finnish, privately held business concentrated on packaging materials operating in Northern Europe. Currently, the group operates companies in Finland, Sweden and Estonia. Tilgmann was founded in Helsinki in 1869 and throughout the decades its products have included maps, banknotes and board games as well as packaging materials.

The divestment of its subsidiary Scandiflex, a Sweden-based flexible packaging producer, is in line with Tilgmann Group’s strategy to focus further on its other business areas such as labels, and enables it to explore future business opportunities in the sector.

The buyer, Schur Flexibles is one of the leading producers of flexible packaging in Europe, and the acquisition of Scandiflex is a good strategic fit as it enables wider access to the Swedish market. With this transaction, Schur Flexibles continues its expansion in the European packaging market.

The Target

Scandiflex was founded in 1985 and is one of the leading Swedish producers of printed flexible packaging laminates for the food and non-food sectors. In 2018, Scandiflex had net sales of approx. SEK 175 million and approx. 50 employees. The company is located in Landskrona, South Sweden.
