3C-CARBON | 04. May 2020
3C-Carbon Group AG has acquired the Medical Intelligence Medizintechnik GmbH, a subsidiary of the Swedish medical technology manufacturer Elekta AB, with effect from 1 May 2020.
With the acquisition of Medical Intelligence Medizintechnik GmbH (MI), 3C-Carbon Group AG (3C) is taking over the German Product Supply Centre (PSC) of the globally active Elekta AB group into the existing 3C medical technology division. MI, based in Schwabmünchen (Bavaria), has been successfully operating since 1995, developing and producing special components for radiation oncology. MI achieves an annual turnover of about 40 million Euro in the business year 2019/2020 with a double-digit return on sales.
3C can look back on a long and successful cooperation with MI. Among other things, 3C is significantly involved in the development and production of CFRP components for the linac solutions of Elekta AB (Stockholm/Sweden). The high-tech carbon fibre components of the 3C-Carbon Group are considered as a recognized market reference. The development speed and quality as well as 3C's unrestricted premium claim will continue to guarantee the basis for a successful cooperation in the future.
Elekta has been a leader in medical precision irradiation for almost five decades. Its nearly 4,000 employees are committed to ensuring that people suffering from cancer worldwide have access to and benefit from more precise, personalized radiation therapies. With the transaction, 3C and Elekta simultaneously enter into a global supply and distribution agreement for MI's medical product portfolio.
The MI employees at the Schwabmünchen site will transfer with the company to 3C. The successful integration of the existing company and its workforce will thus consolidate and deepen the continued close partnership between Elekta and 3C.
Karsten Jerschke, Founder and CEO of 3C: "Our success is based on long-term relationships with our customers and an uncompromising commitment to product quality. Our partners in medical technology demand perfection. We will be able to meet this demand even better by welcoming the new colleagues from Elekta's MI business".
Maurits Wolleswinkel, President Linac Solutions Elekta: "Elekta and 3C are long-standing partners. 3C with its superior design and engineering capabilities is an important supplier for us. Now we are laying the foundation for an even stronger partnership in the future".
