Advantek Acquires Convolutor International AB

Convolutor International AB

ST. LOUIS, MO, June 30, 2016  — Advantek Inc., a leading provider of precision component delivery systems, has signed a purchase agreement to acquire all shares of Convolutor International AB, a carrier tape manufacturer in Laxa, Sweden.

Worldwide demand for deep-pocket carrier tape is growing, especially for applications in the automotive and telecom sectors and among mechanical component manufacturers who utilize robotic pick-and-place technology. With the acquisition of Convolutor, Advantek will enhance its expertise and capability in deep-pocket and wide-width carrier tape and be better able to serve these manufacturers.

“We are pleased to join forces with Convolutor,” says Wim Goossens, President of Advantek. “In addition to the company’s specialized technology and extensive experience in linear forming, Convolutor has access to an excellent tool shop, and its tooling lead time is among the shortest in the industry. This acquisition will allow us to expand production in Europe and bring a wider range of carrier tape products faster to customers in the region. “Convolutor brings depth, width, and agility to Advantek, and we are excited to be working with this talented team.”

“We’ve always had a good feeling about Advantek when meeting their representatives at trade shows and elsewhere,” says Tor Osterberg, CEO of Convolutor International AB. “From our perspective, integration with Advantek offers an opportunity to access markets we cannot reach on our own. In addition, Advantek’s large-scale, standardized production nicely complements our own niche products and processes. Together, we will be able to further develop Advantek’s range of carrier tape products for manufacturers in Europe.”

Convolutor will become Advantek-Convolutor AB. The sale is expected to be final in early July.
