Syntegon’s Cartoning and Track & Trace Business joins ROTZINGER

  • ROTZINGER Group AG takes over ‘Syntegon Cartoning – Track and Trace GmbH’ in Waiblingen, Germany
  • Syntegon will concentrate more on its core business at the Waiblingen site
  • ROTZINGER intends to further develop the business in the long term
  • Completion is subject to approval by the antitrust authorities

Waiblingen, Germany, May 28, 2021. ROTZINGER Group AG is to take over Syntegon Cartoning – Track and Trace GmbH (SCTT GmbH). The two companies have reached an agreement to this effect. This Syntegon subsidiary is based in Waiblingen and employs around 100 people. Its product portfolio encompasses pharmaceutical cartoners and Track & Trace systems. The company also services blister machines. Syntegon had announced last year that it was reviewing the strategic options for this line of business in order to focus more on its core business. The company will be named ROTZINGER PharmaPack GmbH and remain headquartered at the Waiblingen site.

SCTT GmbH develops and produces carton packaging machines for a wide range of pharmaceutical applications as well as integrated Track & Trace hardware and software solutions. Its portfolio ranges from cartoning machines for vials, ampules, syringes, insulin pens, pouches, blisters, cough syrup, and cosmetics to serialization and aggregation solutions for tracking and tracing pharmaceuticals. The company, which has around 100 employees, also offers service around the world.

Syntegon intends to redouble the focus on its core business at the Waiblingen site. The pharmaceutical cartoning and Track & Trace business has made some major advances over recent years, but synergies with the rest of Syntegon’s pharmaceutical portfolio are limited. Syntegon expects that with greater synergies under the ownership of ROTZINGER, this line of business will adapt more flexibly to customers’ requirements and become more successful overall. In the global pharmaceutical market, Syntegon focuses on pharmaceutical process technology for oral and sterile dosage forms, sterile filling, and the corresponding inspection technology.

The future ROTZINGER PharmaPack GmbH is to remain in Waiblingen. ROTZINGER and Syntegon have also agreed that the acquired company and Syntegon will collaborate closely to serve shared customers in the best possible way. It has been agreed that the purchase price and other details of the purchase agreement will not be disclosed. The transaction is expected to close in the third quarter.
