Evonik Industries formally acquired the entire RESOMER® business of Boehringer Ingelheim Pharma GmbH & Co. KG on March 1, 2011. This acquisition involved transferring the entire product portfolio comprising standard and customer-specific polymers for medical applications and pharmaceutical formulations to Evonik’s Pharma Polymers Business Line. The purchase agreement was signed in December 2010. The companies agreed not to disclose details of the purchase price.
In recent years, Evonik has strengthened its position as a producer of active pharmaceutical substances. In the United States, it took over Eli Lilly’s more than 600-employee-strong Tippecanoe site. A new medical products plant has been built in Nanning, China.
