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."

The DSM Biomedical and PTG organization will be closely linked to best service the global market. To secure a smooth integration Bob Ward will stay on as President of DSM PTG.

The acquisition of PTG is an important step for DSM in realizing its ambitions in Biomedical Materials, one of the Emerging Business Areas defined in DSM's Vision 2010 strategy.
