Optima Group has implemented a new strategy, renaming its subsidiaries to reflect continued integration efforts. Four units -- Kugler GmbH, S.F. Vision GmbH, Stern GmbH and a division of the Optima filling and packaging machines -- will combine to form Optima consumer GmbH. Also, Medicon GmbH and the Doyen brand have been merged to form Optima life science GmbH.
S.F. Vision GmbH will become a part of the new Optima consumer GmbH, of which the Feuchter family will retain partial ownership. The future directors will consist of Martin Sauter, sales and service, and Rainer Feuchter, engineering and manufacturing. Extensive expansion is underway and will provide the necessary space for all business units to be combined in one location.
Optima consumer is currently housed in a new 4000-sq.-m. office complex. The company had secured additional land at this site for expansion of both the consumer and pharma business units.
