Sterimed acquires Westfield Medical

Sterimed Group is delighted to announce that today it has completed the acquisition of Westfield Medical, a leading supplier of sterilization packaging systems, based in the UK.

Established for over 45 years, Westfield Medical has developed a strong market presence in the UK as well as on export markets with a complete product offering for hospitals and medical device manufacturers. The company produces sterilization pouches, reels, bags, wraps and tray liners from its manufacturing site near Bristol. In addition to developing long-standing relationships with its customers, Westfield Medical has innovated notably in successfully launching Humipak®, a unique moisture retention pouch for post-operative instrument handling, helping reduce healthcare-associated infections.

Westfield Medical is also a strong brand in the sterilization packaging marketplace, serving the UK NHS and all its other customers with high-quality products and a long-established reputation in this field.

Thibaut Hyvernat, President and CEO of Sterimed, said: “I am thrilled to welcome Westfield Medical in the Sterimed Group: we have been impressed by the work executed by James Vero and his teams over the last years, and we are convinced that the combination of our two companies will create strong value for our customers and for patients’ safety. This is going to reinforce Sterimed presence in the UK and in a lot of international markets, whilst allowing Westfield Medical to even better leverage its product range and brands for accelerated development.

James Vero, CEO of Westfield Medical, said: “I am delighted to see Westfield Medical start a new chapter in its journey as part of Sterimed Group where there will be lots of opportunities to grow and add value within this dynamic and fast-growing business”
