Röchling Acquires Pharmaceutical Packaging Specialist
The Röchling Group, Mannheim, has taken over HPT Hochwertige Pharmatechnik GmbH & Co. KG in Neuhaus am Rennweg, Germany, with effect of January 1, 2015. This takeover is the continuation of Röchling's strategic expansion in the field of Life Science Industry.
The HPT Hochwertige Pharmatechnik GmbH & Co. KG specializes in the production of primary packaging for the pharmaceutical and diagnostic industry. Their product range comprises bottles, canisters, jars, closures and caps as well as assembly parts made of plastics such as HDPE, LDPE and PP for direct contact with liquid and solid medications. HPT produces made-to-order packaging according to their customers’ specifications and offers a wide range of high-quality products from stock.
This takeover is the logical next step in Röchling's previously announced strategy of expanding the use of plastic products for the field of Life Science Industry. Röchling already offers an extensive range of materials and production for this field through its medical grade semi-finished product program by Röchling Sustaplast and Röchling Engineering Plastics as well as its injection molding products of Röchling Oertl Kunststofftechnik and the American subsidiary Röchling Advent Tool & Mold.
HPT will continue to be managed by the well-established management team led by Karl-Heinz Sladek. He views becoming part of the Röchling Group primarily as a new opportunity for his company, which generates a turnover of EUR 33 million with 250 employees.
