SMG acquires Lohmann’s reusable drape tape business

Soest Medical Group has acquires the reusable drape tape business and knowhow from Lohmann as of 1 September.

This acquisition comprises of drape tapes (DuploMED VP6141 and DuploMED 2806) targeted for the reusable surgical drape market and the global customer base of Lohmann for these tapes.

“SMG is glad to strengthen its Eurotape-brand of adhesive products for reusable surgical drape market, and I’m confident that customers will benefit from this transaction by having a single point of contact for all their medical adhesive products,” says Hans van der Meer, CEO of SMG. In addition, the acquisition is said to be a good fit with SMG’s strategy in focusing on certain niche markets in medical adhesives.

Lohmann says that the disposal fits its corporate strategy and recent realignment on core competences and focus areas. “Whilst we believe our broad value proposition provides customers with the solutions they need to be competitive, we know this only comes from being able to use our resources in the most efficient and effective manner,” states Dr. Jörg Pohlman, CEO of Lohmann.

Both companies expect the transition to take place within the month of September 2021.
