Proventis Partners (Switzerland) acted as exclusive M&A and financing advisor to the Rhenopharma Group on its acquisition of Konapharma AG

The acquired Konapharma AG, Allpack Group AG, and Rhenochem AG will form the Rhenopharma Group. As a contract manufacturer in the pharmaceutical industry, Konapharma complements the service offerings of pharmaceutical packaging company Allpack and Rhenochem, both family-owned companies with decades of extensive experience and expertise in the global pharmaceutical industry.

The Rhenopharma Group sets new standards in the pharmaceutical industry with its unique integrated end-to-end value chain (Supply Chain as a Service). This innovative concept enables the Group to offer pharmaceutical services to its customers worldwide, ranging from development, procurement, manufacturing and packaging to worldwide distribution. With the strategic expansion to include Konapharma, the Group offers its customers a comprehensive service that increases efficiency and opens up new opportunities in the pharmaceutical industry.

Thanks to the addition of Konapharma, the Rhenopharma Group strengthens its global position as a provider of integrated pharmaceutical services. With its headquarters in Basel and production facilities and branches in China, India, Brazil, and Mexico, the group generates consolidated sales of over CHF 100 million and employs more than 300 people. Christoph Staub, former CEO of Allpack Group AG, will take over the operational management of Allpack and Konapharma.

Dominique Kuhn, CEO of Rhenochem AG in the second generation, emphasizes the industrial logic of the succession plan: “Konapharma not only ideally complements our services but also their DNA as a familyrun regional pharmaceutical company fits perfectly with us. We are proud to continue the tradition and success of the company and look forward to future collaboration with employees, clients, and partners.” He adds, “We are confident that working together within the Rhenopharma Group will further strengthen our market position.”
