Gothenburg 12 April 2024: Mölnlycke, a world leading MedTech company specialised in wound care and wound management, announced today it signed an agreement to acquire P.G.F. Industry Solutions GmbH, the Austrian manufacturer of Granudacyn wound cleansing and moisturising solutions.

Mölnlycke and P.G.F. have worked together for five years on the manufacturing and distribution of Granudacyn, a range of solution and gel products intended for use in the cleansing, irrigation and moisturisation of various wound types. The high quality and composition of Granudacyn ensures good biocompatibility, allowing it to be effectively used on a broad range of tissues in burns, as well as acute and chronic wounds.

Mölnlycke currently distributes Granudacyn in over 50 countries around the world.

“With an ageing population in combination with increased chronic wounds, such as diabetic foot ulcers or venous leg ulcers, it is our obligation to help ease the burden of wounds on national healthcare regimes” says Zlatko Rihter, CEO of Mölnlycke Health Care. “The acquisition of P.G.F. and its state-of-the-art manufacturing plant, will allow Mölnlycke to aggressively expand our Granudacyn business to improve the lives of even more patients.”

“I’m excited for P.G.F. to become part of Mölnlycke and for the team to continue to manufacture products that support Mölnlycke’s Wound Care mission to help free patients from the burden of wounds” says Peter Fritz, P.G.F. founder and CEO, who will continue to lead this team and manufacturing process from P.G.F.’s Austria headquarters.

Closure is expected after certain milestones are reached and will be communicated separately.
