Acquires American high purity process system manufacturer IPT

At the end of March, Lewa-Nikkiso America, Inc. acquired Integrated Process Technologies, Inc. (IPT), a Massachusetts based company specializing in the 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. Since 2008, there has been a collaborative agreement between IPT and Lewa's US subsidiary. This partnership has provided Lewa, the market leader in metering and process diaphragm pumps, with access to the North American biopharmaceutical downstream systems markets.

Since 2000, IPT has focused on a customer base of OEM and end users in the Life Sciences industries. IPT’s diverse process expertise spans full life- cycle knowledge of upstream and downstream process technologies as well as high purity process utilities.

"The acquisition of IPT will complement the existing competence of Lewa- Nikkiso in this field, increasing the corporate value of the group," explains Naota Shikano, CEO of Lewa. "Together, we want to act worldwide in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology markets and develop a new generation of downstream systems leveraging Lewa-Nikkiso’s fluid technology expertise." 

For six decades we have set the technical standards for metering and process pumps, metering devices and complete systems for fluid metering. This is guaranteed by a solid technique, profound process and industry knowledge and the hermetically tight and absolute safe diaphragm technology. 

We design and manufacture efficient and customized solutions for virtually all metering, conveying, mixing, or odorizing tasks. 

With proximity to our customers – from engineering to technical advice or to commissioning on site – 
some 750 experts around the world enable a successful implementation of projects.

High quality standards and a professional management ensure the best result. For your projects, in your industry.
