Aslan to join the Poli-Tape Group

At the beginning of November 2019, Aslan Schwarz, a leading developer manufacturer and marketer of self-adhesive films for the sign, display and graphic sectors, will be acquired by the Poli-Tape Group, which manufactures self-adhesive textile transfer films, digital media, sign vinyls and pressure-sensitive tapes.

Based in Overath, Germany, Aslan was originally established nearly 70 years ago and is an internationally expanding and innovative company that produces niche products of consistently high-quality. Following its acquisition by Poli-Tape, in a move that will secure its long-term future, the company will be known as Aslan Selbstklebefolien. Production will continue under the Aslan brand at its current Overath-Untereschbach site and the work-force will also be retained to ensure the continuation of the same high-quality personal service that customers have always enjoyed.

Oliver Schwarz, CEO of AslanSchwarz (pictured above right ) commented: Poli-Tape is the ideal partner as it shares our values and ethos. I am pleased to have settled the succession plan at an early stage, and I’m confident that the course is now set for our continued success in the future. I personally will continue to support the company with advice and assistance.”

Sven Möhren, CEO of Poli-Tape Group (pictured above left) said:
“We are delighted to have found in Aslan a company with a strong brand and high-quality products that will be an excellent addition to the Group. Our companies will continue to operate independently, but their connection as one group will make them even stronger when meeting the needs of the market.”

The transaction is still subject to approval from the German competition authority.
