The vacuum metallizing packaging company produces metallized paper for use in the food, beverage and consumer packaging goods industries, and features three manufacturing facilities in Belgium, Italy and the USA.
HIG acquired ARM in September 2012 and shortly thereafter the assets of Vacumet Paper (the US market leader) were acquired to create the global market leading manufacturer of metallized paper.
Since then private equity house has invested to expand operations in South America and furthered new product development with the launch of metallized products for the consumer packaged goods markets.
Mark Kelly, managing director of HIG Capital, the parent company of HIG Europe, said during its tenure ARM developed into a global leader which now serves over 300 clients in more than 80 countries.
“Nissha is the right strategic partner for ARM and will enable it to fully capitalise on substantial global growth opportunities. We look forward to watching ARM thrive under its new ownership.”
Bart Devos, chief executive of ARM, said: “HIG. has been an outstanding and committed partner to ARM. HIG’s ownership has enabled us to invest in world class operations, market leading R&D and new products that serve a customer base across the US, Europe, Africa, Asia and South America while providing invaluable operational and strategic guidance. Under HIG’s ownership we have solidified ARM’s position as the global market leader.”
Nissha Printing Co. is a publicly traded company listed on the Tokyo stock exchange with revenues of over £600m, handling decorative films and printing related materials.
