News Feb 06, 2015
ASI designs, manufactures and delivers customized single-use systems and equipment for the preparation, processing, storage and transportation of biopharmaceuticals. The company has 380 employees and operations in Pennsylvania and Mexico.
“ASI’s intense customer focus has led to the development of innovative solutions that complement our existing single-use technologies and expand our offering across the bioprocessing workflow,” said Marc N. Casper, president and chief executive officer of Thermo Fisher Scientific. “We see this acquisition as a great opportunity to meet customer demand for quality and productivity in bioprocessing, and plan to leverage our global reach to bring these innovative products to a larger customer base.”
Advanced Scientifics had approximately $80 million in 2014 revenue and will be integrated into Thermo Fisher’s Life Sciences Solutions Segment. The company expects accretion to its adjusted earnings per share from the acquisition to be immaterial.
