US-based research laboratory solution provider VWR has acquired pharmaceutical packaging firm Therapak.

Financial details about the transaction have not been disclosed.

Since 1999, Therapak Corporation and Therapak Pharma Services deliver pre-packaged convenience kits and procedure packs for the clinical trial, pharmaceutical, diagnostic and clinical laboratory industries.

“Therapak has proved to be a leader of procedure and kit assembly, making them a great asset to our organisation.”

The firm operates via four facilities, two of which are in Los Angeles and Atlanta in the US, and one in London, UK. The fourth one in Singapore was recently set up to expand its business reach across the Asia-Pacific region.

Therapak offers multiple services, including standard and custom component and kit outsourcing, moderate to complex assembly, process control and serial labelling, along with packaging solutions for courier, medical, diagnostic and pharmaceutical products in a variety of temperature-sensitive materials.

VWR Americas lab and distribution services president Mark McLoughlin said: “As a previous supplier to VWR, Therapak has proved to be a leader of procedure and kit assembly, making them a great asset to our organisation.
