Air Liquide reinforced its activity in healthcare specialty ingredients with the acquisition of BiotechMarine. The acquisition will provide Seppic, a subsidiary in Air Liquide's Healthcare Business Line, with complementary expertise in marine biotechnologies and plant cell culture.
A subsidiary of the Roullier Group, BiotechMarine is a company that specializes in the design and marketing of bio-based, cosmetic active ingredients made from algae. BiotechMarine is based in Pontrieux, France, and has 35 employees.
Seppic, therefore, will expand its product portfolio with a complete range of active ingredients from marine biodiversity.
