RENOLIT acquires Medical Film Division from AUSTAR PMC, China

The RENOLIT Group extends its position in the global market of medical film activities by acquiring the medical film and related activities of AUSTAR PMC, which becomes part of the Business Unit RENOLIT MEDICAL.

This acquisition includes AUSTAR PMC’s film, tubing, ports and caps businesses manufactured in two production facilities located in Huairu and Tongzhou zone in the greater area of Beijing, China. All other activities of AUSTAR PMC are not part of the acquisition.

Mr. Mars Ho, currently CEO and major shareholder of AUSTAR PMC will remain CEO of the acquired entity with the objective and commitment to organize a seamless integration of AUSTAR Medical Film Division into the RENOLIT Group while ensuring relationship and service continuity to customers.

“AUSTAR Medical Film Division represents a key asset for the further development of RENOLIT’s medical business”, stated Pierre Winant, COO of RENOLIT. ”This strategic acquisition enables our Business Unit RENOLIT MEDICAL, in alignment with the vision of RENOLIT Group, to expand its product and technical portfolio, to increase its production and research competencies and to reinforce its presence in China where RENOLIT amongst others already produces films for blood sets in its Guangzhou manufacturing facility”, explained Winant.

“The acquisition will enhance the development and core-competency of the AUSTAR PMC’s purchased film, tubing, ports and caps business activities within RENOLIT MEDICAL thanks to the product, commercial and industrial complementarities, but also to the convergence of our strategic views. This will not only benefit our customers with better products and services but also all the involved employees of AUSTAR Medical Film Division”, added Mars Ho.
