Theegarten-Pactec takes over Milletwist

Theegarten-Pactec has added the Milletwist packing machine from Hänsel Processing to the product programme. The takeover completes the Dresden company’s offer for the packing of stamped and formed hard sugar sweets in double twist wrapping. Theegarten-Pactec already offers machines which pack 450, 1800 or 2300 products per minute reliably and efficiently. The Milletwist, with a performance of 1000 operations per minute, fits well into the range as an intermediate variant. Markus Rustler, Managing Director at Theegarten-Pactec explains: “With the Milletwist we are closing a gap in the product portfolio and are convinced that the takeover will already pay off in the middle term.” With the sale of the Milletwist, Hänsel Processing has stepped up its concentration on the core competences in the area of cooking and stamping plant for the production of sweet goods. A cooperation contract between the two companies still allows Hänsel Processing to offer its customers the Milletwist as well as other packaging machines from Theegarten-Pactec in the framework of turnkey projects together with its process plant.
