Dentisan acquired by Getinge
Dentisan, manufacturer and supplier of dental infection control products, along with parent company Quadralene, has been 100 per cent acquired by Getinge, a global provider of products and systems that contribute to quality enhancement and cost efficiency within healthcare and life sciences.
The deal, which has been negotiated over the last seven months by Breeze Corporate Finance and Shakespeare Martineau Lawyers, safeguards all the jobs at Dentisan’s manufacturing base in Derby and will see the creation of a centre of excellence for chemistry and instrument disinfection at the company’s headquarters in the city.
Getinge was founded in Sweden in 1904 and today employs over 10,000 people worldwide, running 20 production sites in eight different countries. Getinge provides hospitals and life science institutions with products and solutions that aim to improve clinical results and optimise workflows. Their offering includes products and solutions for intensive care, cardiovascular procedures, operating rooms, sterile reprocessing and life science and it operates in more than 135 countries.
Stéphane Le Roy, president of global business unit, surgical workflows, at Getinge, says, “With the acquisition of Quadralene, we will bring additional value and support to our customers in their mission to reduce hospital acquired infections.”
“Quadralene has a great reputation in the field of decontamination, and we are excited that they join Getinge as the future cornerstone of our newly created centre of excellence, dedicated to chemistry and instrument disinfection.”
Bob Newsome, managing director of Dentisan, believes the acquisition is in the best interests of the Dentisan team and its customers. Bob says, “We have a long partnership with Getinge that up until now has been our largest customer. In supporting Getinge to realise its strategic ambition, Dentisan is rightly being recognised for its expertise in decontamination technology.
“Our aim is to continue to innovate within our market, which has been the hallmark of our growth to date, and by becoming an in-house consumables manufacturer we hope to expand the global appeal of the whole Getinge portfolio.”
