C.B. Kaymich, a company specialising in adhesive and fluid application systems exclusively for the tobacco industry, has acquired the Sheffield, UK-based engineering company CA Grant.
The acquisition was completed in September 2007 and is part of an ongoing expansion plan by Kaymich.
"CA Grant has already some involvement in the cigarette industry though their range of cigarette marking dies. The resources that Kaymich can provide will allow them to expand that market," Kaymich director Michael Bedford said.
Kaymich will also be able to make use of the engineering resources that CA Grant can offer. Michael Bedford stated that Kaymich has recently entered into an agreement with a major OEM, requiring a significant increase in engineering capacity that CA Grant can provide.
Both Kaymich and CA Grant are established Sheffield companies with almost ninety years of manufacturing experience between them. (ci)
