Aceto Acquires A&C Bio Buffer, Expanding GMP Product Lines in Biopharma

Aceto will acquire A&C Bio Buffer, including the company’s custom buffer and chemical blend portfolio.

Aceto, a provider of specialty materials, announced its acquisition of A&C Bio Buffer, a good manufacturing practices (GMP) manufacturer of custom buffer and chemical blend products used in the manufacturing of biopharmaceutical drug products, in an Oct. 12, 2021, press release. At A&C Bio Buffer’s ISO 9001:2015-certified facility in Limerick, Ireland, the company manufactures more than 50 products, including biological buffers, process solutions, cleaning solutions, and water for injection.

“A&C Bio Buffer is a natural add-on to our acquisition of A&C and aligns with our commitments to the biopharmaceutical space,” said Gilles Cottier, CEO of Aceto, in the press release. “It is a nimble, highly customer-centric organization serving some of the top biopharmaceutical manufacturers in Europe. Its rapid growth reflects a reputation for service and quality, which recently led to its key role in the raw material supply chain for COVID-19 vaccines. A&C Bio Buffer enhances our growing European manufacturing footprint and commercial presence. We believe the shared lineage reflected in A&C Bio Buffer’s skills, culture and customer focus will further support our evolution as a leading supplier of critical raw materials in the life sciences sector.”

Earlier this year, Aceto also acquired A&C, a global manufacturer of GMP specialty excipients and custom process solutions. According to Aceto’s press release, the company will continue to support A&C BioBuffer’s manufacturing facilities and offices in Ireland. However, financial terms were not disclosed.
