Hill Dickinson has advised Asteria Group on the deal.
Asteria Group (backed by Waterland Private Equity) acquired Midlands-based CS Labels, one of Europe’s largest digital print manufacturers.
Originally established in Belgium, Asteria is an international group with companies in the Netherlands, France, Germany, Denmark, Finland and Estonia, and has quickly become an important player in the European label & packaging market. CS Labels becomes the group’s first UK-based business.
Founded in 1976, CS Labels has grown from a small flexographic and screen printer into an internationally renowned printing company.
The team advising Asteria was led by corporate partner David Mkhitarian (Picture) and involved Olivia Jones (Corporate), Stephen Betts (Tax) Paul Mills (Employment), Ben Taylor and Elle Mackenzie (IP and Commercial), Lisa Suares (Pensions) and Jon Pearson-Basudev (Property).
