Bosch Packaging Technology expands competencies for pharmaceutical inspection technology


Bosch Packaging Technology continues to grow: the acquisition of the machinery business companies (named Eisai Machinery) of Eisai Co., Ltd., based in Tokyo, has been approved by the antitrust authorities without further restrictions.


Eisai Machinery is specialized in the manufacture, sales and export of inspection equipment as well as pharmaceutical machinery and packaging materials. Inspection technology from Eisai Machinery is used for liquid and solid pharmaceuticals, such as ampoules, syringes, vials and tablets. Solutions offered range from basic inspection solutions to fully automated high-performance systems. Eisai Machinery has installed more than 1,000 inspection machines worldwide. “Adding these competencies to our portfolio further enhances our position as full-range provider to the pharmaceutical industry,” said Friedbert Klefenz, President of Bosch Packaging Technology. “We will quickly merge our expertise and expand our presence globally.”


Eisai Machinery consists of four subsidiaries with 120 associates: Eisai Machinery Co., Ltd. (Japan), Eisai Machinery U.S.A. Inc. (North America), Eisai Machinery GmbH (Germany) and Eisai Machinery Shanghai Co., Ltd (China). All locations will be integrated into the worldwide Bosch network. The incorporation will be underlined by joint trade-fair appearances at upcoming international shows, including FCE Pharma in São Paulo/Brazil (Booth M26) Interphex in Tokyo/Japan (Hall 3, Booth 5-46), Achema in Frankfurt/Germany (Hall 3.1, Booth C70/72) and Chinapharm in Shanghai/China.
