SKAN Stein AG, the manufacturing and engineering company of the SKAN Group, strengthens its electron beam application competence and takes over from Comet, in addition to certain assets and know-how, the remaining warranty obligations of the delivered 200kV and 300kV electron beam components.
In September 2020 COMET AG announced the sale of the Ebeam lamp business to Tetra Pak. As of December 31, COMET AG has now entered into an agreement for the sale of the remaining Ebeam component business to SKAN Stein AG, which includes the performance of service activities for 200kV and 300 kV Ebeam®-engines or their components.
With this transaction, SKAN Group secures and deepens its access and know-how to a core technology for its customers in the pharmaceutical industry. In line with its announced focus strategy, COMET AG is concentrating on its core business of Plasma Control and X-Ray.
Matthias Frei, CEO of SKAN Stein AG, is pleased about the product addition: “The acquisition of engineering know-how and services secures the future of Ebeam technology for our customers in the pharmaceutical industry, especially for new projects and service. In return, the current warranty commitments for components supplied by Comet AG and SKAN Stein AG are secured.”
