Biotage AB (Uppsala, Sweden) has agreed a deal to purchase all outstanding shares in Horizon Technology Inc. for $18.4 million. 

Based in New Hampshire, USA, Horizon Technology is a provider of separation systems and consumables in areas such as water purification, food safety, biofuels, agriculture, pharmaceuticals, and the petrochemical industry. The purchase of Horizon Technology will strengthen Biotage’s position within environmental applications and food safety and allow Biotage to offer a more comprehensive portfolio of products.

“The acquisition of Horizon is in line with our strategy to grow our separation business through expansion into new application areas,” said Torben Jörgensen, CEO of Biotage. “This transaction enables Horizon’s existing products to reach a larger global market through Biotage’s direct sales channels, at the same time as Biotage’s existing products get access to customers in industries where Biotage historically has not been as active.”

“We are excited to partner with Biotage for the next phase of Horizon’s development,” said Robert S. Johnson, co-founder and CEO of Horizon. “This combination will allow Horizon’s product offering to continue to expand its global footprint and open up new opportunities for developing and bringing our innovative products to the market,” he continued.
