Greiner Bio-One, a part of the Greiner Group, specializes in the development, production and distribution of high-quality plastic products for laboratory use. The company is a technology partner for hospitals, laboratories, universities, research institutes, the diagnostic and pharmaceutical industry and biotechnology.

For over 20 years, the Greiner Group has worked with VacuetteEspaña, S.A. and Vacuette Portugal Importação e Exportação de Material Hospitalar, S.A., both of which were previously exclusive distributors for Greiner Bio-One International on the Iberian Peninsula. Towards the end of February 2017, Greiner Bio-One entered into official acquisition agreements with both of its distribution partners that came into effect on March 1, 2017. The two subsidiaries in Madrid and Porto will now continue to supply directly to their customers in both the markets.

“Having our own local subsidiaries will bring us closer to our customers and enable us to cater to our markets even more effectively at an international level. The acquisition of VacuetteEspaña and Vacuette Portugal is another key step in our globalization strategy,” said Axel Kühner, Chairman of the Management Board of the Greiner Group.

“Following the establishment of our own distribution subsidiaries in Turkey and Italy last year, the new Greiner Bio-One sites in Spain and Portugal are the next step in systematic implementation of our distribution strategy in Europe,” added Rainer Perneker, CEO of Greiner Bio-One International.

“By attaining greater proximity to customers, we aim to develop the two markets on the Iberian Peninsula in an even more targeted way. The acquisitions mark the continuation of our growth over many years and allow us to step up services and customer care at the local level,” said Manfred Buchberger, CEO of Greiner Bio-One Preanalytics.
