Shu An, chairman and managing director of SLAC, explained: “The acquisition of Corima will extend and enrich our existing product portfolio, and at the same time will allow us to set up a skilled technical service centre in Europe, in order to support the European entities of our multinational customers. This is a first step in our strategy of building SLAC into an international business partner for the metal packaging industry.”
