PRESS RELEASE : Rexam Healthcare Devices becomes Nemera and renews its commitment to patients and customers

Paris, July 8th, 2014

It was announced today that the healthcare business formerly known as Rexam Healthcare Devices has become Nemera. This name change follows the May 2, 2014 acquisition by Montagu Private Equity. Nemera will continue to operate with the same management team and its choice of name signifies a renewed commitment to its mission of providing patients with safe and accurate delivery devices.

A new name that stands for life and efficiency

The name Nemera comes from two sources: “Emera” from Greek meaning “day” and suggesting renewal, fresh hope and life; and “Nemer” from Hebrew and Arabic, meaning “leopard” and suggesting swiftness, efficiency and agility.

One of the world leaders in drug delivery solutions

Nemera is one of the world leaders in the design, development and manufacturing of drug delivery solutions. Its expertise covers all five modes of delivery: ophthalmic (preservative free droppers), nasal, buccal, auricular (sprays pumps, etc.), pulmonary (inhalers), dermal and transdermal (dispensers), parenteral (injectors, pens, safety devices). Nemera provides solutions for the pharmaceutical industry, including standard innovative products, development of custom devices and contract manufacturing.

Montagu has also bought Rexam Prescription Products, the industry leader in prescription packaging for over 100 years, which is now known as Centor.

“There is no limit to Nemera’s ambition to serve patients. We already market devices in over 40 countries for millions of users. We’ll keep investing in new products and in state of the art manufacturing equipment, to help even more patients with high quality devices all over the world.”
