IMS Technologies, the manufacturer of Goebel slitter rewinders, will now be partnered in India by Reifenhauser India. Starting July 2020, Reifenhäuser India will represent IMS’ Goebel, a leading supplier of slitter rewinders, automatic unwinders and rewinders, and inspection machines for the primary and secondary converting segments.

Considering the rapid growth of the converting business in India, it is necessary for the Group to strengthen its presence in the country further and refine its market penetration strategy. Thanks to this partnership, we will be able to improve our support to the existing customers and to approach the new ones more effectively,” said Marino Ferrarese, Group Sales and Marketing director.

Goebel slitter rewinders are well known in the converting industry for their precision and very narrow width specialty applications for all times of films, laminates, aluminum, and special papers. In addition, LAEM IMS twin-shaft slitter-rewinders for flexible packaging, compact slitter rewinders, and Rotomac food wrapping equipment will be offered to the Indian market through Reifenhauser India.
