Cambrex completes acquisition of Avista Pharma Solutions2 Jan 2019
Acquisition adds a full complement of early-stage development capabilities to Cambrex’s larger scale capabilities for APIs and finished dosage forms.
Cambrex has completed the acquisition of Avista Pharma Solutions, a contract development, manufacturing and testing organization, from Ampersand Capital Partners. The transaction strengthens Cambrex’s position as the leading, fully integrated small molecule CDMO across the entire drug lifecycle.
Avista’s four sites in Durham, NC, Longmont, CO, Agawam, MA and Edinburgh, Scotland, UK will be integrated into Cambrex’s global network, as well as the company’s service offerings ranging from API and drug product development and cGMP manufacturing to stand-alone analytical, microbiology testing and solid state sciences.
“Acquiring Avista adds a full complement of early-stage development capabilities to Cambrex’s larger scale capabilities for both APIs and finished dosage forms. We are excited to start off 2019 integrating Avista into Cambrex’s global network of facilities. Adding Avista today and Halo Pharma in September significantly increases our customer base and funnel of projects, provides significant cross selling opportunities and allows us to offer an integrated service offering for most small molecules from the pre-clinical stage through the commercial stage,” commented Steve Klosk, President and CEO of Cambrex.
Shawn Cavanagh, COO of Cambrex added: “I would like to welcome all of Avista’s employees into the Cambrex family, and I look forward to working with them as we continue to be the experts our customers enjoy working with.”
In September 2018, Cambrex acquired Halo Pharma, adding formulation development and finished dosage manufacturing capabilities to Cambrex’s existing global API manufacturing network. With the acquisition of Avista, Cambrex now operates 12 facilities around the globe and employs approximately 2,000 people.
