SKAN Group AG closes announced increase of its stake in Aseptic Technologies
Allschwil, 4 July 2022 – SKAN Group AG, global market leader in high-quality isolator systems for aseptic production processes in the (bio-)pharmaceutical industry, has completed the announced increase of its shareholding in the Belgian subsidiary Aseptic Technologies. As of July 1, 2022, it acquired a further 20% of the shares from the co-owner, Société Régionale d'Investissement de Wallonie (SRIW), increasing its stake to 80%. Under the contractual agreement with SIRW, SKAN will acquire two subsequent tranches of 5% each between 2023 and 2026. SRIW will remain a 10% shareholder in Aseptic Technologies and will continue to support the company alongside SKAN.
Aseptic Technologies is of strategic importance to the SKAN Group. The automated, robotic process solutions for filling closed vials (AT-Closed Vial® Technology) produced by Aseptic Technologies target applications in cell and gene therapy, a rapidly growing therapeutic segment. Customers of Aseptic Technologies have over 300 compounds in research and clinical trials, several of which being in the final phase of development before market approval. The commercialization of new drugs will increase the demand for closed vials and thus the volume in the Services & Consumables segment.
