Anteris specializes in supporting the development and commercialization of combination products, medical devices, and in-vitro diagnostic products. This acquisition helps both companies realize their shared corporate goal of geographical expansion, while also bolstering service capabilities by providing a broader array of highly specialized services to clients. The strength of the combined companies service offerings and office locations will be a tremendous benefit to their customers who bring important biologics, including biosimilars and cell and gene therapies (C&GTs), pharmaceuticals, drug/device combinations products, and medical devices to markets worldwide. By combining the technical, scientific, and regulatory expertise from both companies, clients will be able to truly benefit from this synergy to ensure compliance and submission excellence to FDA, EMA, Notified Bodies, and other health authorities.

Stephen M. Perry, Founder and CEO of Kymanox remarked, “We are excited about merging our capabilities with anteris, a nimble organization with an amazing reputation for being committed to their clients’ programs with a focus on results, which means getting critical treatments to patients-in-need. Furthermore, anteris’ physical presence in Germany and Switzerland, along with their strength and experience in biosimilars, fills two important strategic needs for Kymanox. The anteris team shares our core values of Quality + Integrity + Gratitude = Reputation, and brings a unique value proposition to the marketplace when combined with Kymanox’s capabilities.  Together, we will support the development of vital modern medicines for people to live better, love longer, and Get More Done.”
