US-based Avery Dennison has entered a definitive agreement to buy Mactac Europe from American private equity firm Platinum Equity for €200m.

The deal also includes Mactac Europe’s assumed debt.

The company manufactures pressure-sensitive materials, including graphics, specialty labels and industrial tapes.

It has around 470 employees and recorded run-rate revenues of €147m at the end of 2015.

"We believe the combination of the two companies’ talented employee bases will create a stronger European team."

The deal is expected to complement Avery Dennison’s existing graphics portfolio with Mactac’s core product lines.

The transaction excludes Mactac’s business in the US, Canada and Mexico and its North American exports.
