New Delhi: Eurolife Healthcare, one of India’s leading specialty pharmaceuticals companies, has entered into an agreement to acquire the Form-Fill-Seal (FFS) Infusion business from Baxter India. Baxter India is a subsidiary of Baxter International, a leading global medical products company. The acquisition will allow Eurolife to consolidate its position as a prominent player in the Form-Fill-Seal (FFS) Infusions segment and expand its FFS infusion manufacturing capacity to meet the evolving needs of the domestic and global FFS infusion market segments.
Following the close of the transaction, Eurolife Healthcare will have an impressive pan-India FFS Infusions manufacturing presence in Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu and Uttarakhand.
