Ansell about to buy Comasec
Ansell has announced its intention to acquire Comasec SAS, subject to regulatory approval. Comasec, which is headquartered north of Paris, France, has the capacity to manufacture over 200 million pairs of gloves annually. It has manufacturing plants in Malaysia and Portugal and employs over 1,200 people. The acquisition of Comasec will help strengthen Ansell's position in the rapidly growing but fragmented 7 billion Dollar industrial hand protection market. It will also enhance Ansell's presence in a number of important verticals including mechanical, chemical, food and utilities.
