BÜCHI Labortechnik AG has entered into an agreement to buy the flash chromatography and ELSD product lines from Grace Discovery Sciences. The transaction has been approved by the board of directors of Grace and BUCHI and was closed with immediate effect.
As such the Reveleris® Flash Chromatography Systems, GraceResolv™ and Alltech® ELSD 3300 brands of products will now be offered globally by BUCHI.
With Grace, a trusted manufacturer of chromatography resins for over 80 year, we found a partner that shares our values and innovation, customer service, and development of highest quality products. The agreement enables us to offer our chromatography customers a proven solution meeting the high expectations of our customers.
Furthermore, the acquisition fits perfectly into the strategy of the BUCHI Group and meets the high criteria we have defined for such transactions. We do see tremendous potential in the market for chromatography and we are convinced that this settlement will provide an optimal platform. It underlines BUCHI’s approach to invest into preparative chromatography to complete our portfolio for drug discovery and development.
Reveleris® Flash Chromatography system, GraceResolv™ and Alltech® ELSD 3300 brands of products are developed and produced in Deerfield/IL. The site will be retained and 20 employees of Grace will be acquired by BUCHI to become an integral part of our worldwide operating group. We look forward to welcoming them soon.
