“Molins has a presence in large and attractive growth markets, an enviable portfolio of global multinational customers, an impressive range of innovative technologies and above all a very talented and engaged workforce.

"The sale will provide Molins with the platform to accelerate the execution of its strategy to invest in growth packaging machinery sectors."

“With the proceeds from the sale of I&TM, I am even more confident about the growth opportunities for the Group.”
