PERIGON ACQUIRES THE ENGLISH TECHNOLOGY COMPANY TRICHORD LTD.
Perigon GmbH, a subsidiary of the Sihl Group, has taken over the technology company Trichord Ltd. as of 1 June, making it a full-range supplier of technologically high-grade decorated surfaces.
Perigon is the first supplier in the world to offer a process that allows even complex 3D objects to be printed on an industrial scale over their entire surface. In brilliant colours, pin-sharp, free of distortion – regardless of the material.
Through the acquisition of the technology provider and joint venture partner Trichord Ltd., the parent company Sihl instantly holds 100% of the shares in both the technology and the consumables.
‘A perfect match’, says Peter Wahsner, CEO of the Sihl Group. ‘It allows us to offer our customers everything from a single source, with every part sourced and manufactured in-house. The acquisition of Trichord is the foundation for the global expansion of our strategic Industrial Customisation division. It positions Perigon as an attractive implementation partner for industrial surface decoration, for example for brands from the glass bottle industry.’
The operations and respective contact persons of Trichord and Perigon will remain unchanged until further notice.
