Purchase via the Sartorius Stedim Biotech subgroup
WaterSep BioSeparations in Marlborough, Massachusetts, employs 15 people and generates annual sales of around EUR 2.5 million with excellent growth prospects. The company offers disposable and reusable hollow fiber membrane systems as well as pre-sterilized units for purification processes in the biopharmaceutical industry – a distinctly niche segment. Until now, WaterSep BioSeparations was privately held. Sartorius is buying the company for around 27 million US dollars. In addition, an earn-out component was agreed: up to an additional nine million dollars is to be paid out if certain sales targets are achieved by 2023.
Sartorius has been around since 1870 and, with its approx. 10,000 employees, is one of the 15 largest companies in Lower Saxony.
The Group comprises the two divisions Bioprocess Solutions and Lab Products & Services. The Bio Process Solutions division focuses on filtration, fermentation, fluid management and purification with a focus on the biopharmaceutical industry. The biotechnology activities are combined in the Sartorius Stedim Biotech subgroup. The subgroup was created in 2007 by merging the Biotechnology Division of Sartorius with the French biotech company Stedim S.A.. Sartorius Stedim Biotech has now acted as the buyer for WaterSep BioSeparations. The subgroup thus intends to live up to its claim of being a leading global technology provider for the biopharmaceutical industry.
