Bosch has announced that the Eisai Machinery companies in Germany, China and North America have been renamed as Bosch Inspection Technology.
Bosch Packaging Technology KK in Japan and its Japanese subsidiary Eisai Machinery have also completed their merger into Bosch Packaging Technology KK.
With the latest move, Bosch Packaging has completed the next step in the integration process of its subsidiary Eisai Machinery into the worldwide network of Bosch.
According to the Germany-based company, the name Eisai Machinery will be retained at present as a product brand of Bosch Packaging.
Bosch Packaging now runs offices in Tokyo and Osaka and production sites in Funabashi and Honjo, while the merger is set to strengthen Bosch's position further in the Japanese market.
Bosch Packaging Technology in Japan president Joachim Baczewski said the renaming underlines the company's strategy of offering better inspection technology competence from one source.
"By bundling our competencies, uniting our employees and consolidating our portfolios, we make use of the existing synergies," Baczewski said.
In April 2012, Bosch finalised the acquisition of the machinery business companies of Japanese pharmaceutical company Eisai.
As part of the acquisition, the entire share and equity interest of Eisai Machinery has been transferred to the Bosch Group.
Inspection technology from Eisai Machinery is used in the area of liquid pharmaceuticals with ampoules, pre-filled syringes or vials, as well as in the production of solid pharmaceuticals such as tablets.
