Hillenbrand, Inc.’s acquisition of LINXIS Group, leaders in specialized equipment for the food, pharma, and cosmetics industries, has formally been completed. LINXIS Group has six industry-leading brands – Bakon, Diosna, Shaffer, Shick Esteve, Unifiller, and VMI – that serve customers in over 100 countries. With a global footprint, LINXIS Group specializes in the design, installation, and service of industrial process equipment and automation solutions that are complementary to the equipment and solutions Coperion currently
offers to the food and pharma industries. LINXIS Group will be a part of the Coperion Food,
Health & Nutrition Division, headed by Kevin Buchler as President Food, Health and Nutrition
division and Tim Cook as Chief Strategy and Business Development Officer, Linxis.

Both companies will combine their strengths and capabilities as global suppliers to the food and
health industries. LINXIS Group’s highly specialized equipment and strong reputation as a
leading supplier of mixing, ingredient automation, and portioning solutions directly align with
Coperion’s growth strategy for food applications. Together, Coperion and LINXIS Group can
leverage their respective expertise and combined global footprint to provide enhanced solutions
for customers.

The combined global customer service resources provide an enhanced support network to our
customers. Additionally, multiple state-of-the-art test centers are available worldwide for
product development and proof of concept trials. “We believe LINXIS Group and their brands’ strong reputation within the food, pharma, and cosmetics industry enhances Coperion’s existing capabilities and aligns with our growth strategy. Together, we’ll have strong production and engineering locations throughout the world.

By leveraging the combined capabilities of both organizations, we will be able to offer more
comprehensive processing solutions and create significant value for our customers,”
emphasized Kevin Buchler. Tim Cook added, “We look forward to having a dedicated and committed partner at our side, that will support and enhance the growth path we started several years ago. We are convinced that the combination of both companies technologies and our global sales and service networks provide excellent prospects for the future.”
