CLEVELAND, US: The Lubrizol Corporation has acquired Bavaria Medizin Technologie GmbH (BMT), an innovative designer and manufacturer of both intravascular (coronary, peripheral, and cranial) and nonvascular devices, including drug-coated balloons.

This acquisition builds upon Lubrizol’s expertise in precision thermoplastic extrusion and product development, establishing Lubrizol as a true end-to-end partner to the global medical device and pharmaceutical industries. 

With over 100 employees, BMT is headquartered near Munich, Germany and operates a manufacturing facility in Sibiu, Romania. A pioneer in catheter-based technologies, BMT developed the first commercial drug-coated balloon, the Paccocath catheter.

Today, BMT holds over 50 patents and continues to innovate through self-funded R&D projects, as well as contract R&D services. Additionally, BMT offers private label manufacturing of proprietary catheters and balloons along with original equipment manufacturing (OEM) services, which include the manufacturing of subassemblies and components, sterilization, packaging and labeling, stent crimping, and logistics management.

The acquisition of BMT expands Lubrizol’s product design, development, and manufacturing expertise and provides access to proprietary catheter and balloon technologies. BMT’s experience and reputation in the drug-coated balloon (DCB) space aligns well with Lubrizol’s pharmaceutical CDMO business and positions Lubrizol as the ideal partner for developing next generation DCBs.

“Lubrizol continues to invest in opportunities that position us as a full-service development partner for innovative OEMs in the interventional space. Our customers will benefit from additional design capabilities, an increased global footprint, and synergies with our existing formulation and manufacturing services,” said Uwe Winzen, general manager of the Health business of Lubrizol Life Science.
