Jabil Circuit Inc. affirmed it has completed its acquisition of Nypro Inc., a provider of manufactured precision plastic products for customers in the healthcare, packaging and consumer electronics industries. The definitive agreement was announced on February 4, 2013.
“We are pleased to finalize this transaction and look forward to integrating the Nypro business and customers with Jabil’s current healthcare and instrumentation business,” says Courtney Ryan, Jabil’s senior vice president who will run the business from the current Nypro headquarters in Clinton, Mass. “This is an exciting time for both companies and we look forward to collectively serving customers with a broad array of service offerings in the healthcare and plastic packaging marketplaces under the Nypro name.”
The combined entity of Jabil and Nypro is expected to bolster their position in key markets, such as healthcare and expand the market in packaging for customers in the food and beverage, household and personal care industries. The consumer electronics portion of Nypro’s business will be integrated into Jabil’s materials technology services.
Approximately 10,000 Nypro employees will become Jabil employees. The Nypro trade name will be retained and used to jointly market services to customers in the healthcare and packaging markets for Jabil. The united team will work together to jointly market their integrated services.
