medwork GmbH (Managing Director: Gerald Fischer) announced today that it has entered into an agreement with FUJIFILM Corporation (President: Kenji Sukeno) to acquire its shares on May 16.
FUJIFILM Corporation, headquartered in Tokyo, Japan, has provided continuous innovation and market-leading products to many industries since 1934. In the field of endoscopy, Fujifilm is best known for its pioneering endoscope systems. Both companies have been working together since 2012.
As with medwork, Fujifilm’s overriding goal is to improve the quality of people’s lives worldwide.
The market for endoscopic instruments is growing steadily as the demand for minimally invasive endoscopic examinations and treatments increases worldwide. The common goal is to meet this demand and take better advantage of growth opportunities.
Due to the complementary product portfolio, the merger will result in a considerable synergy effect:
With technologically innovative endoscope systems and a global sales network, Fujifilm is the ideal partner for medwork, a medical technology manufacturer that has been developing and producing high-quality medical instruments for therapeutic endoscopy in Germany for over 20 years. This strengthens Höchstadt as a location and will enable it to expand further in the coming years.
medwork and Fujifilm will work closely together to develop medical technology product innovations of the highest quality and make them available to users worldwide.
