Collonil, the German supplier of shoe polish, takes over EMC Furnituren, a German supplier of insoles and other shoe accessories. EMC’s factory in Ascheberg is being closed and its management will be moved to the head office in Berlin of Collonil’s parent company, Salzenbrodt Gmbh & Co. KG. Further acquisitions are reportedly envisaged, notably in foreign countries such as France, Spain or Portugal. Collonil has annual sales of over €30 million and more than half of the revenues come from clients outside Germany.
