Elumatec and Emmegi set to join forces in UK

Elumatec (UK) and Emmegi (UK) have announced plans for a formal collaboration in the UK market, designed to help both businesses deliver an even better service to customers.

The move is part of the ‘One Company’ approach being implemented by the Voilàp Group, which owns both Elumatec and Emmegi, as well as other well-known brands such as Tekna, Someco and Keraglass.

According to the Voilàp Group, ‘One Company’ is all about making the most of the synergies that exist in the individual group businesses, enhancing their inherent strengths and promoting individual talent. It is said to be focused on ‘excellence and growth’ – excellence in processes and service, and achieving growth by supporting customers to grow.

The Group claims that its organisational model is one of the reasons why it is able to design highly innovative products and compatible software. It adds that being able to draw on complementary talents, skills and knowledge helps it to serve customers with a portfolio of products and services that ‘meet all their needs’.

In the UK, Elumatec and Emmegi will continue to operate alongside one another but with a shared vision and shared access to the other Voilàp brands.

In a joint statement Ian Latimer, managing director of Emmegi and Neil Parton, managing director of Elumatec, said: “This is an exciting new chapter for both our businesses and has been warmly welcomed by staff. We are still finalising our new operational structure, but we will certainly be working more closely together in the future, identifying new shared opportunities in the UK and Ireland and growing our combined market share

“The benefits to customers will come in the form of better access to a broader range of machines and software, more servicing and maintenance resources, and more investment in process efficiencies.

“Our customers will continue to deal with their current Emmegi or Elumatec contacts, and can contact either of us directly for more information.”
