Azelis buys two and expands labs

In the space of a few weeks, distributor Azelis has acquired Sirius International, a distributor of speciality chemicals in the Benelux market, and Gillco Ingredients, a speciality ingredients provider in the US. Terms were not disclosed in either case.

Led by founder and CEO Leo Verboeket, Sirus is active in environmentally friendly chemicals for the detergent, personal care and water treatment markets in Europe. Azelis said this complements its lateral value chain in home care and industrial cleaning.

Azelis has announced the opening of new laboratories within the space of a month. Each covers different applications and is located on different continent.

A new pharmaceuticals and healthcare application laboratory in Courbevoie, France, complements existing ones in the UK and Turkey, the company said. It is equipped to address challenges in areas such as API solubilisation and bioavailability, compliance, counterfeiting and misuse, and the optimisation of formulations and production processes.
