Integrated Process Technologies (IPT) joins LEWA-NIKKISO Group

The Massachusetts based company specializes in engineering, design, and manufacture of high purity process systems. IPT has a proven track record of delivering design-build projects for the pharmaceutical and biotechnology markets with particular expertise in process/mechanical and process/automation systems integration.

Due to a collaborative agreement with IPT closed in 2008, Lewa's US subsidiary has been able break into the North American biopharmaceutical downstream systems markets. The acquisition will advance this development and "complement the existing competence of LEWA-NIKKISO in this field, increasing the corporate value of the group," explains Naota Shikano, CEO of Lewa.
