The Serac Group, a global leader in the manufacture of filling machines for food and non-food liquids in rigid packaging, announces the acquisition on 20 January of NFM and its subsidiary DOSELEC, a manufacturer of dosing systems and filling machines for preformed cups located in Falaise in the Normandy region of France. This SME will reinforce Serac’s “preformed cup machines” expertise acquired in 2004 with the purchase of Nova.
The acquisition of DOSELEC takes place in a global context of strong demand in the dairy products market and more generally in the market for food products in cups, which is expected to grow by 16% by 2026.
Commenting on the acquisition, Manuel Colasse, general manager of DOSELEC, said, “We are pleased to join the Serac Group. This will allow DOSELEC to rely on the international expertise of the Serac Group to establish itself in places where it was difficult to go alone."
"DOSELEC’s expertise is a natural fit with the Serac Group's core business in technical filling and consolidates our position in a fast-growing global market," Philippe Farrugia, executive managing director of Serac Group
Founded in 1991, DOSELEC is a company made up of a team of people who are passionate about dosing and mechanics. Since 2009, DOSELEC has structured its activity around three areas of expertise: dosing systems, packaging machines for preformed cups and the renovation of used machines. With more than 200 types of dosing nozzles, DOSELEC has acquired a solid reputation in dosing with its high performance equipment on the dairy, cheese, dessert, pastry, bakery, baby food, petfood and ice cream markets.
