Madern and CSi packaging join forces to become Madern Industries

CSi packaging is proud to announce that it joins forces with Madern Group, a well-established and high-quality player in the post-press converting of paperboard packaging. This further strengthens the position of both companies to serve their customers throughout various post-press production steps, adequately respond to market trends and further solidifies their coverage in Europe, the US and Asia. The combination is backed by Torqx Capital Partners who will become majority shareholder of the group in combination with management.

Jean Madern, former CEO and in the new combination the Chairman of the Advisory Board, comments: “Madern already has a long history of working together with CSi packaging on optimizing client solutions. It is a great step for both companies to further intensify this cooperation by actually becoming one company. CSi packaging perfectly fits the Madern company culture and the high-quality standard we aim to offer our customers and I look forward to seeing my legacy, Madern Group, grow further under the Madern Industries combination.”

Mark van de Klundert, CEO of the new combination of Madern Industries and former CEO of CSi packaging, added: “Joining forces with Madern marks an important milestone in the rapid growth path that CSi packaging has experienced over the last couple of years. Madern is an incredibly strong brand name with an exceptional product, and we look forward to combining solutions of both companies to serve our customers even better, with high quality and high performing solutions. The extensive track record Madern has built in Europe and the US, as well as Asia, will underpin the further growth of both CSi packaging and Madern and will unlock further opportunities for the combined companies in the general folding and liquid packaging markets.”
