Barry-Wehmiller has acquired Winkler+Dünnebier and POEM GmbH (W+D) from Körber.

W+D is headquartered in Neuwied and Löhne, Germany, and has additional locations in the United States and Malaysia.

It provides integrated system solutions for the tissue and hygiene industry as well as the mail and postal industry.

It is Barry-Wehmiller’s second business in its expanding converting platform.

W+D will operate as an independent business unit alongside Paper Converting Machine Company (PCMC).

Tim Sullivan, Barry-Wehmiller group president, said: “As we bring W+D into the Barry-Wehmiller family, we look forward to even greater successes as we leverage the resources of both companies to optimise opportunities for W+D’s associates and customers alike.”
