The Eisai Machinery companies in Germany, China and North America have been renamed to Bosch Inspection Technology, as of January 1, 2013. Also, Bosch Packaging Technology K.K. in Japan and its Japanese subsidiary Eisai Machinery Co., Ltd. have completed their merger into Bosch Packaging Technology K.K., completing the integration process into the worldwide Bosch network. The name Eisai Machinery remains unchanged as a product brand of Bosch Packaging Technology. Bosch Packaging Technology K.K. now runs offices in Tokyo and Osaka with production sites in Funabashi and Honjo.
“By bundling our competencies, uniting our employees and consolidating our portfolios, we make use of the existing synergies. We are certain that both our customers and Bosch will greatly benefit from the integration,” Joachim Baczewski, president of Bosch Packaging Technology K.K. in Japan, explained.
“We will synchronize the advantages we have on both sides to develop even better solutions for our customers,” said Kenji Hanawa, former President of Eisai Machinery Co., Ltd., who has taken on the position as vice president Inspection Technology. Bosch aims at becoming the number one partner for processing, packaging and inspection technology, as well as retail and after-market service in Japan. The merger is an important step in this direction.
“The renaming underlines our strategy of offering highest inspection technology competence from one source,” added Mr. Baczewski. Customers from both Bosch and Eisai Machinery will continue to receive the accustomed machinery range and product quality. Bosch Packaging Technology offers a comprehensive inspection technology portfolio, ranging from manual to semi-automated and fully automated solutions for particle and cosmetic inspection of vials, ampoules, syringes and tablets, leak detection as well as x-ray technology for capsule inspection.”
