Cannock, United Kingdom – November 12, 2007 – Nicholl Food Packaging Limited (“Nicholl”) announced it has acquired Bachmann Aluminium GmbH (“Bachmann”). Nicholl is a leading European producer and distributor of smoothwall/wrinklewall aluminium containers with an unrivalled reputation for innovation, development, quality and customer service.


The group has facilities in the United Kingdom, France, Belgium and now Germany, with access to an enormous range of Nicholl-produced profiles which are being expanded and developed on a regular basis.


Bachmann’s geographical location and superb reputation in the German market fitted very well with Nicholl’s strategic plan to grow in the Mainland European Sector.


There is plenty of scope for expansion at the Ronnenberg facility and the resource will now be available to develop smoothwall and standard tooling to satisfy market demand.


The Operational Directors of the Business will be Arnd Bachmann and Bernd Wagner, both of whom have a wealth of experience in the aluminium container business. Their expertise together with the excellent facilities at Ronnenberg and the resources now available will be an excellent combination.


The future looks very positive as we take our Company to the next stage of its development.
