Helichem and Vipack join
chemical companies Helichem (Belfeld) and Vipack (Landgraaf)
have joined forces as of 9 October 2012. The two Limburg companies specialise
in the production of cleaning and maintenance products under private label. The
merger will generate the economies of scale sought by Helichem as well as a
reinforcement of Vipack’s position in Landgraaf. Both sites will continue to exist.
each other at just the right time,” says Henk Vossen, director of
the Helichem Group. “We were looking for economies of scale and Vipack was busy
reinforcing its management. It soon become clear as early as our first meeting
that a collaboration could provide this. This collaboration is the joining of
forces of two healthy companies, both of which have achieved a steady increase
in turnover in the last few years.”
specialises in the mass production of household and personal-care retail
products. Helichem’s focus is on small and
medium-sized runs for professional users and consumers. Its emphasis is on
flexibility, delivery reliability, efficiency, the environment, corporate
social responsibility and (often new) legislation. In order to be able to
achieve this total service Helichem has for years invested in personnel,
premises, filling lines and software, among other things, in areas such as
operations, financial control, product management and legal compliance.
Helichem aims to use its competences in these areas on a broader scale, for
example by extending its focus to include mass production and retail.
collaboration with Vipack will fulfil this aim, while Helichem’s
staff and MT have sufficient capacity to manage both companies. Vipack’s sales and product management will be reinforced by
the focus of former director Franz Vis and Helichem’s
sales team. There will also be concrete synergy benefits to be gained in
purchasing, R&D, quality control and quality assurance.
this collaboration the Helichem Group will from now on realise an annual
turnover of around EUR 30 million with over 100 employees.
