The ALPLA Group is further expanding its pharma division ALPLApharma with its acquisition of Heinlein Plastik-Technik GmbH. The contract was signed on June 12, 2024. The parties have agreed not to disclose the negotiated details of the transaction.

The German packaging specialist Heinlein is one of the world’s best-known addresses for the development and manufacture of closure systems, dosing systems and application aids for the pharma and medical industries, and currently has a workforce of around 175 at its site in Ansbach, Bavaria.

ALPLA CEO, Philipp Lehner, said: ‘” am delighted that we have been able to gain Heinlein Plastik-Technik, which is a long-established, global business. It is a good fit with our focus on the one hand on the dynamics of advancing technological innovations and on the global expansion of our business activities on the other. With the extensive know-how that Heinlein has to offer, we can expand our product portfolio to include high-quality primary packaging solutions for the pharma industry. The beneficiaries of this will first and foremost be our mutual customers, who will now be able to source their tailored system solutions from a single place.’”

Walter Knes, Managing Director of ALPLApharma, said: “With Heinlein Plastik-Technik at our side, our capacities in the area of injection moulding will now considerably increase once again. We additionally plan to turn the Ansbach site into a technology centre for injection moulding and automation technology for the entire ALPLApharma group.”

Saskia Wellhöfer-Meyer, owner and CEO of Heinlein Plastik-Technik, was referred to as seeing the acquisition as the perfect opportunity to systematically further develop the company’s site: She said: “We look forward to applying our broad expertise in the development and production of precision closure and dosing systems. I firmly believe that, as we continue to operate largely independently as a “Member of ALPLApharma”, we will henceforth be in an even better position to cater to the market demand for comprehensive, high-quality and competitively priced system solutions.”
