Saga Décor acquires Société Charentaise de Décor

Saga Décor, a Verallia group company with expertise in decorating glass food containers, has acquired Société Charentaise de Décor, specialized in glass satin-finishing. Through this deal, Verallia consolidates its decoration range to match market trends, while strengthening its presence in Charente, in the south-west of France.

Founded in 1973, Société Charentaise de Décor has unique expertise in satin-finishing glass bottles. Located in Gensac-la-Pallue (Charente), the firm decorates around 30 million bottles a year and employs 28 employees. In 2015, its turnover was over €6m. Verallia and Société Charentaise de Décor have in common a customer base of major spirits brands representing the most dynamic market for glass bottle decoration.

With this acquisition, Saga Décor reinforces its industrial capabilities and affirms its know-how in satin-finishing. This announcement illustrates Saga Décor’s willingness to invest in meeting new customer requirements, primarily demanding range variety and flexibility in decoration techniques. In this vein, late 2016, Saga Décor started up at its Pont-Sainte-Maxence facility (Oise, France) a lacquering line on full bottles with drying by UV lamps and a hot-stamping machine.
