In 1967, the Group acquired a 45% interest in a new partnership in Germany, Rudolf Lensing K.G., together with worldwide sales for that company’s machinery for the thermo-plastic forming of packages. The machines were sold as a complimentary line to the Rose Forgrove wrapping and packaging machines. In 1968, the existing factory was modified and extended to allow more space for manufacturing.

The Group’s interest in Lensing was sold in 1970 as part of a deal in which Lensing became a subsidiary of Deutsche Babcock. Baker Perkins International Ltd and Rose Forgrove continued to develop, make and sell a widening range of machinery for the thermoforming of plastic containers. Advantage was taken of the expertise in this field of Package Machinery Co. an American associate of Baker Perkins.
