13. 2. 2024

It is with great pleasure we would like to inform you that S&K LABEL spol. s r.o. (S&K Labels) has been acquired by the Coveris Group. The acquisition became effective, 12th February 2024 and we are extremely pleased about this new collaboration and look forward to working closely together.


Following Coveris’ recent acquisitions of two flexible packaging plants in Hungary and Poland, S&K LABEL in the Czech Republic marks the packaging leader’s third acquisition in CEE, and the first acquisition of a labels business outside of the UK. As one of the technologically most advanced manufacturers in the Central and Eastern Europe region, S&K LABEL provides an ideal strategic fit with Coveris’ labels business to create a pan-European business platform.


Commenting on the acquisition, Christian Kolarik, Group CEO of Coveris, said: “We are excited by this opportunity to invest in the growth of our labels business, build on our platform and broaden our geographic reach. The acquisition of S&K LABEL is an excellent opportunity for us to secure locally produced high-quality labels for our customers, helping to meet the current and anticipated future growth in demand for sustainable labels. This acquisition will also enable us to further strengthen our position in mainland Europe.”


About Coveris

Coveris is a leading European packaging company. It manufactures flexible packaging solutions for some of the world's most respected brands, producing a wide range of products - from food to pet food, medical goods to industrial and agricultural products. Coveris is organised in three Business Units: Films, Flexibles, and Paper. Together with its customers, Coveris is continuously developing new, attractive, and sustainable packaging, fully in line with the company's No Waste sustainability vision. Pursuing this vision, Coveris has recently established ReCover, a separate Business Unit that bundles all steps of waste procurement and processing for circular plastic recycling, thus closing the loop. With the Corporate Office in Vienna, Coveris Group has 29 sites in the EMEA region, with a total of 4,100 employees.


"The acquisition of S&K LABEL by international printing company Coveris is the result of a strategic decision by the owners to move the company forward and ensure stability for the future. After nearly a year of an intensive process of selecting a suitable investor, we are convinced that the combination with such a strong partner brings unlimited potential for the development of our company. By integrating into the Coveris Group network, we can expand our overall packaging product offering, share know-how and benefit from the latest technologies and trends in the packaging industry, especially in the area of sustainability. I look forward to the new cooperation and the challenges that lie ahead," says Miroslav Vrba, Executive Director of S&K LABEL.


Most products offered by S&K LABEL are also part of the existing product range of Coveris’ Paper business and therefore we are very proud that through this collaboration we will be able to enhance all that is great about the S&K offer and continue to deliver the highest quality labels and services. In addition to this we will also be able to provide complementary packaging products through our strong network of manufacturing plants in Europe and extend the total packaging offer. The integration of S&K LABEL into our plant network will grant a back-up possibility and will give the opportunity to benefit from Coveris’ latest technological and R&D capabilities, which we are continuously investing in.


Finally, we would like to assure you that the local management team remains unchanged and will continue to service all requirements without any disruption. Our number one priority is to ensure business is as usual.
