Sterimed Group has wrapped up the acquisition of Westfield Medical, a supplier of sterilization packaging systems. Based in the UK, Westfield Medical produces sterilization pouches, reels, bags, wraps, and tray liners from its manufacturing site near Bristol. Westfield Medical has also launched Humipak, a unique moisture retention pouch for post-operative instrument handling, intended to help reduce healthcare-associated infections.
Westfield Medical is also a strong brand in the sterilization packaging marketplace, serving the UK NHS and other customers.
Commenting on the acquisition in a news release, Thibaut Hyvernat, president and CEO of Sterimed, said: "I am thrilled to welcome Westfield Medical in the Sterimed Group: we have been impressed by the work executed by James Vero and his teams over the last years, and we are convinced that the combination of our two companies will create strong value for our customers and for patients’ safety. This is going to reinforce Sterimed presence in the UK and in a lot of international markets, whilst allowing Westfield Medical to even better leverage its product range and brands for an accelerated development."
Added James Vero, CEO of Westfield Medical: "I am delighted to see Westfield Medical start a new chapter in its journey as part of Sterimed Group where there will be lots of opportunities to grow and add value within this dynamic and fast growing business."
