Fremont, CA ;The healthcare industry has been hit by the digital disruption wave. While the scope and speed of change this will bring to the industry are still being debated, there is no doubt that transformation is already underway. Several disruptive forces in the healthcare sector have been pushing this barrier and changing the way patients are catered to. The Masco Group has acquired a major share in KeyPlants AB, a Swedish company. Masco's position in engineering technology for bio sciences will be strengthened as a result of this move.
By combining Masco Group's leadership in clean utilities and process technologies with KeyPlants' knowledge and innovative energy in prefabricated, modular facility solutions, this cooperation will boost Masco Group. It will provide a global customer base of biopharmaceutical manufacturers and CDMOs focused on biologics, pharma, and advanced therapy medicinal products (ATMPs), such as cell and gene therapies, with stronger value propositions for global supply chain challenges such as flexibility, reliability, and fast-track manufacturing timelines.
