Syntegon is expanding its pharmaceutical processing and packaging business with the acquisition of Azbil Telstar, to date part of the Japanese Azbil Corporation, which is listed on the Tokyo Stock Exchange Prime Market.

Telstar, headquartered in Terrassa (Barcelona), Spain, is a manufacturer and supplier of equipment for the global life and health science industries. Telstar has a strong experienced team serving pharma, life sciences, and medtech customers around the world, especially in Southern and Western Europe, the U.S., and India.

With the expanded portfolio, Syntegon will be in an even better position to offer both pharmaceutical manufacturers and CMOs seamless line solutions from a single source. Moreover, the Syntegon service network will be expanded significantly by the Telstar service engineers, adding geographical coverage, proximity, and application expertise.

“Syntegon is world market leader in liquid vial filling. With the acquisition of Telstar, we will enhance our portfolio of innovative technologies and many successful references in the market. Our customers will benefit from even more comprehensive solutions, seamless processes, and lifecycle services,” says Torsten Türling, CEO of the Syntegon Group. “At the same time, we can jointly capture growth opportunities and expand our market presence.”

“Azbil has been strengthening its product capabilities, particularly in loading systems, and enhancing the overall competitiveness of Telstar since the acquisition in 2013. Now Azbil has decided to transfer Telstar to the company we consider best to further drive Telstar’s business. We are convinced that Syntegon will make the best use of the accumulated technological capabilities and products and will achieve sustainable growth,” says Kiyohiro Yamamoto, President and Group CEO of Azbil.

“For Telstar, the incorporation into the Syntegon Group represents a great opportunity to ensure stable business development and future growth. We look forward to bringing our knowledge, expertise, and high-value technologies for aseptic manufacturing to the joint portfolio and to becoming part of the Syntegon team, backed by a shared business culture,” says Jordi Puig, CEO of Telstar.
