The Poli-Tape Group is a global leader in the niche market for transfer films. The company produces and sells films on a PVC base, which are used mainly in the textile, graphics and advertising industry for individual lettering and printing. In 2011, capiton acquired a minority interest in Poli-Tape within the framework of an owner buy-back model, injecting further growth capital at the same time. The owning family retained a majority interest, and was also able to realise substantial financial returns for asset diversification. In addition, the succession was controlled by appointing the founder’s son to the Board. The growth strategy continued under capiton, significantly increasing turnover and profits. In 2016 capiton, in consultation with the owning family, decided to sell its minority interest to the Bitburger Family Office. The owning family therefore continues to hold a majority interest and is in a position to develop the company further in future.
