Barry-Wehmiller Cos. Inc. said Monday it has completed the acquisition of the Bielomatik paper processing product line from Bielomatik Leuze GmbH + Co. KG.

The Bielomatik operations will be integrated within BW Papersystems, a global supplier to the paper and board sheeting, paper converting and corrugating industries.

The sale, announced in July, became final on Oct. 1.

That integration within BW Papersystems’ German operations will create a $430 million global group serving the paper and corrugating industry, Clayton-based Barry-Wehmiller.

With this newest addition, Barry-Wehmiller’s revenues will approach $2.4 billion as it expands worldwide.
