Arla Plast acquires Alphaplex GmbH with Heuking
A team led by the partners Dr. Martin Imhof and Dr. Helge-Torsten Wöhlert advised Arla Plast AB, a publicly listed company based in Borensberg, Sweden, on the acquisition of Alphaplex GmbH. Alphaplex GmbH, based in Hüllhorst nearby Hanover, Germany, is specialized in the trade and processing of plastic products and is mainly active in the DACH region. Since the company’s incorporation in 2016, Alphaplex GmbH supplies customized plastic products, inter alia, for trade fair and store fitting, illuminated and advertising signs and for splinter and machine protection.
The international Arla Plast Group is one of the leading producers of plastic sheets in Europe, operating three production sites in Sweden and the Czech Republic. By integrating Alphaplex GmbH into the Swedish group, Arla Plast strategically expands its business in the DACH region and is now in a position to directly supply end customers with its plastic solutions. The Arla Plast Group and Alphaplex GmbH already had a long-standing and successful business relationship prior to the acquisition.
