EnPro Industries, Inc., a manufacturer of engineered industrial products, has acquired The Aseptic Group (comprising Aseptic Process Equipment SAS and Aseptic Services SARL), a privately-held company which distributes, designs and manufactures aseptic fluid transfer products for the pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical industries. The Aseptic Group will become part of EnPro’s Garlock Family of Companies, a global supplier of high-performance sealing and fluid handling products to process industries.
The Aseptic Group is a supplier of high purity fluid path components that has been serving some of the world’s largest pharmaceutical companies for over 20 years. The company is at the forefront of developing products and capabilities to support the latest manufacturing techniques currently being adopted to produce next generation biopharmaceutical drugs. The high level of operational excellence, product quality, and strict documentation expected by this emerging industry requires a deep understanding, expertise, and investment compared to traditional pharmaceutical manufacturing.
“With expert product design knowledge, world-class manufacturing, and supply chain integrity, The Aseptic Group platform is highly leverageable as we continue to build our global capabilities," Garlock president Mike Faulkner said.
Commenting on the acquisition of The Aseptic Group, Steve Macadam, president and chief executive officer of EnPro Industries said “The acquisition of The Aseptic Group represents our ongoing commitment to invest in the pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical industries that form a key part of the strategic growth plan for Garlock.”
