Müller Martini Acquires Hunkeler Group

After a thorough review, the owner families have decided to merge the Hunkeler Group with the Müller Martini Group. Müller Martini Holding AG has acquired all of the shares of the Hunkeler Group. With this transaction, the Hunkeler family and Crédit Mutuel Equity have sold off all their shares to Müller Martini. The parties have agreed not to disclose the purchase price.

Hunkeler AG and Müller Martini AG are both global market leaders with innovative solutions for post-print paper processing. Both companies focus a significant part of their innovative strength on the economical production of individualized print products within an automated smart factory.

The Switzerland-based companies have been very close for many years. The long and successful history began during World War II, when Hans Müller worked for Hunkeler as a mechanical engineer before setting up his own business in 1946 and founding the company Hans Müller / Grapha. These good relations have been maintained for decades. The local proximity in the Zofingen region, and the already existing and successful partnership in the machine and component business, form an ideal starting point for even closer cooperation in the future.

By joining forces, both companies see great opportunities to bundle their innovation activities and to serve their global customer base even better in the future through joint sales and service activities. The two owner families have therefore decided on this strategic transaction that led to the acquisition of Hunkeler AG by Müller Martini AG. It was also confirmed that the merger will also not see a change in the name Hunkeler as well as the Hunkeler Innovationdays.

Bruno Müller, CEO Müller Martini, says, “The graphic arts industry is constantly changing and regularly calls for new innovations. By combining the key components of the two companies, such as personnel, expertise, and technology, we will be able to serve our global clientele even better with innovative solutions in the future.”

Stefan and Michel Hunkeler of Hunkeler AG expressed their satisfaction with the merger, stating that it will be greatly beneficial for both partners and their joint customers, as it will result in considerable advantages in a combined enterprise.
