The two subsidiaries of Terumo Corporation of Japan to operate as Terumo Aortic
Vascutek and Bolton Medical, subsidiaries of Terumo Corporation of Japan, have combined into a single business as Terumo looks to grow its presence in the global aortic and vascular implants market.
Known as Terumo Aortic, the integrated company is set to become a world leader in driving innovation and developing devices to treat aortic disease. As a combined business, Terumo Aortic aims to become recognised for its focus on individualised treatments that offer clinicians more options than ever before.
Paul Holbrook, president of Terumo Aortic, said: "This coming together of two organisations with highly advanced technologies will be transformative for physicians and the patients they serve."
"We have woven together the products, services and expertise offered by our teams in Europe and the United States, enabling clinicians to meet the unique needs of their patients and redefine the treatment of aortic disease."
Terumo Aortic will have a combined revenue of nearly $200m and over 1,100 employees worldwide. Its primary research and manufacturing facilities will remain in Glasgow, Scotland and Sunrise, Florida (US).
The combined offering includes advanced technologies such as surgical grafts for abdominal, cardiothoracic and peripheral applications as well as hybrid and catheter-based stent graft systems for abdominal and thoracic aortic aneurysms.
Vascutek and Bolton Medical have been working to consolidate and streamline their complementary offerings for the past year. Significant focus has been placed on creating an integrated research and innovation strategy that will push the boundaries of the aortic and vascular implants market.
