Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics has completed the acquisition of Applied Bioprocess Containers, a U.S.-based supplier of single use containers and fluid transfer systems for the biopharmaceutical industry.
Based in Plymouth, Minnesota, Applied Bioprocess Containers specializes in the design and manufacture of single-use storage vessels designed for the preparation, collection, storage and transportation of biopharmaceutical liquids, as well as single-use fluid transfer assemblies, including tubing and connectors. Applied Bioprocess Containers focuses on developing highly-customized solutions to meet specific customer requirements.
"This acquisition is an excellent fit for Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics, since both companies supply single-use systems to the biopharmaceutical market with the same focus on design, service and customer needs. Applied Bioprocess Containers brings us a strong expertise in design and manufacturing of bioprocess containers, while Saint-Gobain has a recognized leadership in fluid transfer components, especially tubing and connectors. This now increases our ability to serve customers globally with a more comprehensive product portfolio" says Michael Cahill, Vice President of Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics' Fluid Systems division, into which the Applied Bioprocess Containers business will be integrated.
