NPBI produces blood-storage systems including blood bags, filters and equipment to separate blood components. The company has production facilities in the Netherlands and Brazil and targets hospitals and large blood banks. H2 saw the opportunity and clear potential for a transformation of the company and acquired NPBI from CLB. The operations of the business were enhanced. A buyer for the business post transformation was already identified at acquisition. NPBI was sold to Fresenius Kabi (DE), a large pan-European contract development and manufacturing services provider for sterile pharmaceuticals and medical devices.
