Strategic partnership signed
USA-based Quantum Engineered Products, a company specialising in blank side forming, has signed a strategic partnership with Rondot Group. A family-owned company, Quantum is well known throughout the industry for its innovation and ability to provide solutions to customers. The brand, managed by Steven Kozora, son of founder Joe Kozora (both pictured), primarily addresses customers in the pharmaceutical industry.
Rondot Group, founded in 1936 and headed by CEO Louis Rondot, is a leading player in the design and distribution of mechanical parts and electronic equipment for the glass container industry. The group operates a dozen families of products, aimed at improving the productivity of glass container production lines. These products are manufactured at five production sites in France and the UK and are commercialised worldwide via its subsidiaries in all continents.
Rondot Group has undergone strong growth, actively led by Louis Rondot and his management team and with the support of financial shareholders Siparex (main shareholder), Initiative & Finance and Bpi France. The group’s turnover was over €45 million in 2020.
Integration of Quantum’s products into its portfolio will allow Rondot Group to offer a more complete product range, with a particular focus on the pharmaceutical and cosmetic industries. In parallel, it will allow Quantum, which will still be led by Managing Partner Steven Kozora, to significantly improve its commercialisation through Rondot’s established sales network.
“Quantum Engineered Products has been our business partner for more than 20 years, so we are very happy to welcome them among our team and to add their rare expertise to our product line” commented Louis Rondot. “This alliance will allow us to complement our offer and maintain proximity to our customers, while opening our sales network to Quantum which has never ceased to provide specific solutions to glassmakers around the world.”
Steven Kozora added: “I am very excited to be joining the Rondot Group. I truly believe that this partnership will enhance Quantum’s ability to reach new customers, while we continue to provide the highest level of service and support."
