Thompson Street Capital Partners (TSCP), a private equity firm based in St. Louis, in conjunction with its portfolio company, Savillex, today announced the acquisition of ONFAB. The addition of ONFAB, a manufacturer of bespoke, single-use flexible containment solutions for pharmaceutical process manufacturing, positions Savillex as a leader in providing innovative containment solutions to the global pharmaceutical, biopharmaceutical, and contract manufacturing organizations. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
“We are very excited to add ONFAB into the Savillex family,” said Steve Harding, President of Savillex. “The combination of Savillex and ONFAB enables us to offer more container and containment solutions to our customers by combining our complimentary engineering and production capabilities and product portfolios.”
Many of the world’s largest pharmaceutical, biopharmaceutical companies, and contract manufacturing organizations trust Savillex’s expertise in rigid containers, customer container projects, and closed mixing systems. With locations in the UK and Spain, the acquisition of ONFAB expands Savillex’s ability to serve industry-leading containment solutions to their global life sciences customers.
Founded in 2004 as a family-owned business, ONFAB focuses on designing and fabricating innovative flexible isolator systems. The designs are custom-made to the unique needs of each customer’s pharmaceutical manufacturing process and protect users from highly potent pharmaceutical ingredients. ONFAB’s systems reduce manufacturing costs, minimize cleaning and cleaning validation times, and shorten downtime for equipment changeout. As part of Savillex, ONFAB customers and channel partners will now have access to a full suite of custom rigid container solutions for their most important and time-sensitive projects. The Savillex brand gains an international footprint with increased ability to serve global customers.
Said Matt Scherrer, Managing Director, TSCP, “We’re excited to be partnering with the management team of ONFAB, which highly complements our existing efforts in life science containment solutions through our platform Savillex.” Added Mr. Scherrer, “ONFAB brings industry-leading capabilities in custom, single-use flexible containment design and manufacturing as evidenced by its impressive roster of customers. We’re excited to bring ONFAB onboard and accelerate the ongoing growth of Savillex.”
