ITW says that there are no plans to substantially change how Euromere markets its products, which has operated as a privately held, family business since its inception in 1986. The core management team will remain the same, with the exception of Founder Bernard Imbert who will remain with Euromere as a consultant throughout the transition period to maintain his longstanding connection to Euromere’s customer base.
