IK Investment Partners-backed LINXIS Group, a provider of specialised equipment for the food and health industries, has acquired Bakon, a specialist in food processing and bakery equipment from managers and current investor Rabo Investments.

Bakon’s activity complements the “Portion Process” division of LINXIS, represented today by the company Unifiller, and enriches its expertise in depositing, but also in ultrasonic cutting and spraying processes. Its experience in managing industrial line projects will enable LINXIS Group and its companies to address larger markets, both in terms of activities and geography.

“With Bakon’s acquisition, LINXIS Group will further strengthen its expertise and excellence. Representing the third acquisition following investment from IK Investment Partners, we pursue our strategy of adding to our existing portfolio, companies and brands with deep knowledge and complementary technologies, in order to continuously develop solutions that closely meet the needs of our markets,” says LINXIS Group CEO, Didier Soumet.
