Korte Etiketten becomes part of the Chinese MAXIM Group

30. June 2020

Schwelm/ Düsseldorf/ Shang­hai — The owner of Klaus Korte GmbH & Co KG (“Korte”), a Schwelm-based produ­cer and supplier of high-quality labels and brand iden­ti­fi­ca­tion solu­ti­ons (photo) has sold to the Chinese Maxim Label and Pack­a­ging Group (“Maxim”) of Shang­hai. Klaus Korte GmbH & Co KG was advi­sed on the tran­sac­tion by Mayland AG.

Since 1962, Korte has been produ­cing the highest quality origi­nal woven and prin­ted labels at compe­ti­tive prices. In doing so, Korte works in a parti­cu­larly indi­vi­dua­li­zed manner and can custo­mize the mate­rial, shape, colors as well as brand iden­ti­fi­ca­tion solu­ti­ons to meet custo­mer requi­re­ments. The merger with Maxim now enab­les Korte to expand its previous focus on the German market inter­na­tio­nally, espe­cially to the Asian region, and to comple­ment its range of brand iden­ti­fi­ca­tion solu­ti­ons with RFID solu­ti­ons, among other things.

Maxim Label and Pack­a­ging Group sees itself as a one-stop shop provi­ding brand iden­tity protec­tion and infor­ma­tion tech­no­logy solu­ti­ons to retailers and major brands. The product port­fo­lio inclu­des RFID solu­ti­ons, price tags, ther­mal trans­fer labels, hang tags, care labels, adhe­si­ves and pack­a­ging solu­ti­ons. With the acqui­si­tion of Korte, Maxim intends to expand its produc­tion capa­ci­ties around the globe while conti­nuing to secure Korte’s posi­tion as one of the indus­try leaders in this segment. The main goal of Maxim is to quickly and easily adapt to chan­ging global requi­re­ments while syste­ma­ti­zing them.
