Can Man AG and Frei AG have become new members of the Soudronic Group.
Mr Ruedi Umbricht, his sister Marianne and brother Johnny have decided to sell their successful company together with their latest acquisition, Frei AG, to Soudronic AG.
Can Man AG and Frei AG will remain operating as independent units within the group. Production sites, employees as well as products, services and pricing will also remain as they are.
Can Man AG will keep on operating independently as Can Man AG in the market. Ruedi Umbricht will maintain the responsibility for this operation and Johnny Umbricht will take on the role of general manager. In addition, Ruedi Umbricht will take on the position of COO (Chief Operations Officer) of the Soudronic Group. In this role new (and existing), his focus will be on business opportunities in the group.
It is the declared goal of both companies to strengthen the position of metal packaging – with focus on the three-piece can – in the market through joint development. Focus of this development will not only be on cost but also convenience and product safety.
