Swisslog, a leading supplier of solutions for medication and supply chain management in healthcare, has acquired Tecnilab Group, a global leader in pharmacy automation and logistics technology for healthcare systems.
Swisslog and Tecnilab have partnered over the past three years to introduce the UniPick 2 drug dispensing system for outpatient pharmacies and the TheraPick automated packaging and dispensing system for inpatient pharmacies. The acquisition is intended to strengthen the existing global Swisslog technology portfolio in inpatient and outpatient pharmacy automation. The acquisition expands Swisslog Healthcare’s market presence in the strategic regions of Europe and Asia-Pacific.
“Tecnilab has been an outstanding development partner for Swisslog,” said Stephan Sonderegger, CEO for Swisslog Healthcare. “Their retail and outpatient systems complement Swisslog technology to provide health systems with a totally integrated solution for inpatient and outpatient medication management.”
Giancarlo Gervasi, founder and managing director of Tecnilab added, “Together, we bring a strategic competence in research and development for pharmacy automation solutions that is unmatched. Our ability to listen to customers and deliver robotic solutions that address their needs provides significant value in safety, efficiency and process improvement.”
Swisslog and Tecnilab signed a technology partnership agreement in June 2013, which was announced in the Swisslog Annual Report. Tecnilab’s operations in Cuneo, Italy will be integrated into Swisslog Healthcare’s Technology Center organization, supported by the current Tecnilab management team.
