Honeywell acquires research chemicals business from Sigma-Aldrich

MORRIS PLAINS, US: Honeywell International Inc said that it has acquired Germany-based laboratory research chemicals business from Sigma-Aldrich Corp, broadening Honeywell's offerings for high-purity solutions for drug discovery, medical diagnostic testing and other laboratory applications.

The acquisition includes the Fluka-branded solvents and inorganic chemistry portfolio worldwide and the Sigma-Aldrich-branded solvents and inorganic chemistry portfolio in the European Economic Area (EEA). Those offerings are now part of Honeywell's broader portfolio of offerings for research chemicals, which already includes the Riedel-de Haen and Burdick & Jackson brands.

“The combined Honeywell business will be able to serve a broader range of customers and applications with global brands recognized for world-class quality and lot-to-lot consistency – essential for a range of applications including drug synthesis, food, environmental, chemical and forensic testing,” said Qamar Bhatia, president, Honeywell’s specialty products business.

The acquired business will be integrated into Honeywell’s fine chemicals business and will continue to be led by the core leadership team of the acquired company.

With two production sites, Seelze and Muskegon in US, the combined business unit will be able to develop and manufacture high-purity research chemicals and other materials used in new drug discovery, medical diagnostic testing and other laboratory applications, Honeywell said.
