Werfen announced an agreement to sell its Medical Devices and Scientific Instrumentation Distribution businesses in Spain and Portugal to Palex for more than €100 million. The transaction is subject to customary regulatory approvals and is expected to be completed in the third quarter of this year.

The sale includes Izasa Medical, Izasa Scientific, and MC Medical. Together, these companies represented 7% of Werfen’s total sales in 2023. In recent years, the company’s strategic focus has evolved significantly, influenced by various factors such as market dynamics, strategic opportunities, and shifts in the industry landscape. This divestiture will enable Werfen to focus on specialized diagnostics, its core business. For Palex, the acquisition is an opportunity to continue offering its customers innovative solutions of the highest quality.

“These businesses are deeply rooted in our company's history and, through the years, have become renowned in Spain and Portugal,” said Werfen CEO Carlos Pascual. “I am especially pleased that in Palex, we have found an owner able to provide our employees with an opportunity to join a company that will focus on growing these businesses.”

Commenting on their prospective acquisition, Palex CEO Xavier Carbonell said, “At Palex, we are thrilled about this acquisition, as it allows us to reinforce our position as the premier Pan-European platform in Medical Devices and Life Sciences. I am confident that the integration between both parties will be very smooth and natural, thanks to the significant convergence of philosophy and values.”
