Entegris says buying Flex Concepts will help secure its supply of disposable bioprocessing bags and fluid transfer technologies.

According to the acquisition agreement, Flex Concepts will transfer its Utah, US-based manufacturing and warehouse sites, and all employees, to speciality-chemical firm Entegris. The purchase price is non-material to Entegris’ overall financial statements, we were told.

Entegris stated, “Flex Concepts’ quick-turn, custom-configured, single-use product technology is a complement to Entegris’ existing single-use bag product line.”

The decision to acquire the vendor responds to increased demand for single-use technologies, Entegris spokesperson Eric Isberg told us.

“The addition of Flex also brings us manufacturing location redundancy to help ensure security of supply of products,” ​he added.

The Logan, Utah-based facility joins Entegris’ manufacturing, customer services, and research facility network across the US, China, France, Germany, Israel, Japan, Malaysia, Singapore, South Korea and Taiwan.
