Müller Martini AG acquires Hunkeler AG. Both family-owned companies have been close for many years. During the Second World War, Hans Müller worked for Hunkeler as a mechanical engineer before setting up his own business, Hans Müller / Grapha, in 1946.
It helped that both companies are headquartered in the Zofingen region of Switzerland. By joining forces, both companies see “great” opportunities to bundle their activities and to serve their global customer base.
Bruno Müller said,”The graphic arts industry is constantly changing and regularly calls for new innovations. By combining the key components of the two companies, such as personnel, expertise and technology, we will be able to serve our global clientele even better with innovative solutions in the future.”
Stefan and Michel Hunkeler added, “There is a long-standing partnership between Hunkeler and Müller Martini and a regular exchange. The opportunity for the merger is currently greatly beneficial for both partners and our joint customers, as it will result in considerable advantages in a combined enterprise. This is also a strong commitment for the Zofingen region.”
The management of Hunkeler AG under the leadership of Daniel Erni will remain responsible for day-to-day business.
The name Hunkeler, the Hunkeler products and services as well as the Hunkeler Innovationdays will remain unchanged. The Hunkeler location in Wikon and its employees will be retained.
The current day-to-day business continues unchanged. Adjustments will be worked out together and implemented in a controlled manner. International business will continue as normal via the current channels until further notice. Müller Martini intends to continue business with other finishing companies that currently partner with Hunkeler.
