LINXIS Group has six brands – Bakon, Diosna, Shaffer, Shick Esteve, Unifiller and VMI – that serve customers in over 100 countries. The company offers the design, installation and service of industrial process equipment and automation solutions. LINXIS Group will be part of the Coperion Food, Health & Nutrition Division, headed by Kevin Buchler as President Food, Health and Nutrition and Tim Cook as Chief Strategy and Business Development Officer.
Both companies will combine their strengths and capabilities to the food and health industries.

Coperion and LINXIS Group will leverage their expertise and combined global footprint. Their combined global customer service resources will provide an enhanced support network to their customers.
“We believe LINXIS Group and their brands’ strong reputation within the food, pharma, and cosmetics industry enhances Coperion’s existing capabilities and aligns with our growth strategy,” explained Kevin Buchler. “Together, we’ll have strong production and engineering locations throughout the world. By leveraging the combined capabilities of both organisations, we will be able to offer more comprehensive processing solutions and create significant value for our customers.”
