With PTG, DSM obtains a leading position in the field of biomedical polymers.

This acquisition will enable us to grow a unique portfolio of materials-based technologies for the healthcare market. This will allow acceleration in our business growth and market presence."

Bob Ward, President and one of the founders of PTG: "We see the combination of PTG and DSM's biomedical activities as a huge step allowing us to better serve our customers in the medical device and pharmaceutical industries by bringing a much greater breadth of products, technology and services to bear."
