Mosca expands end-of-line portfolio with acquisition of Movitec

With the acquisition of Movitec Wrapping Systems, Mosca GmbH is expanding its end-of-line portfolio, starting on 18 March 2021. This helps the Waldbrunn/Germany-based strapping specialist to build up its expertise particularly in the food, agricultural and pharmaceutical industries. At the same time, Mosca is offering Movitec access to a global sales network for its stretch wrapping machines. Movitec will operate under its current management as an independent brand within the global Mosca Group. Founded in 2004 and based in Alcoletge/Spain, Movitec currently has around 50 employees.

Mosca CEO Timo Mosca says: “Our subsidiary, Mosca Direct Spain, has been working successfully with Movitec on a project basis for several years and it became clear that we have a lot in common, from the highest quality standards and comprehensive service packages, to our operating methods and structures.” Yet, the two companies are not in direct competition with each other. While strapping ensures optimal stability of the product bundle, the focus of stretch wrapping is on protecting goods from external influences such as dust, moisture or dirt.
