AURORA, OHIO (Jan. 3, 1 p.m. ET) — Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics Corp. has purchased American Fluoroseal Corp. in a move that will allow the company to expand its product offerings for specific medical and pharmaceutical production.

American Fluoroseal has both engineering and manufacturing in Gaithersburg, Md., and was a leader in the early design and use of fluorinated ethylene propylene bags. Its products are used in both the medical industry and for sterile sampling systems for pharmaceutical products.

Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics, based in Aurora, Ohio, will be able to use AFC’s products for customers who need very specific cell culture applications in biopharmaceutical research and manufacturing, the company said in a Jan. 2 news release.

AFC’s operations will become part of Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics’ fluid systems division.

The companies did not immediately disclose the terms of the acquisition.
