MEYLAN, France - Paint and high-viscosity products provider SAMES Kremlin has finalized its strategic acquisition of bonding equipment specialist Eisenmann Intec. The news and naming of iNTEC SAMES Kremlin was announced early April by SAMES Kremlin and its parent firm EXEL.

EXEL Industries signed an agreement to acquire 100 percent of the German-based Eisenmann Intec GmbH & Co. KG back in late December. The iNTEC site at Erftstadt, near Cologne, is being retained with all the staff in Germany and abroad. The primary market for iNTEC is automotive.

In addition to the automotive industry, SAMES-Kremlin is a major supplier of products to the woodworking, construction, agricultural, transportation, industrial and consumer markets. The U.S. office for SAMES Kremlin is based in Michigan.

According to Cédric Perres, CEO of SAMES Kremlin worldwide, iNTEC SAMES Kremlin will retain its brand and its autonomy within the company. "The two companies share a passion for innovation and service for the benefit of particularly demanding customers. iNTEC SAMES Kremlin and SAMES Kremlin will mutually benefit from highly complementary product lines and customers to develop their application activities for high viscosity products in the automotive and general industries."
