Bunzl plc has divested its Healthcare division to Mediq

Bunzl plc has divested Bunzl Retail & Healthcare Supplies Limited, including its flagship brand - 365 Healthcare, to Mediq, a leading European provider of medical devices and care solutions to patients and healthcare institutions.

Bunzl Healthcare is a supplier of healthcare consumables, healthcare equipment, cleaning and hygiene products, as well as healthcare devices to hospitals, care homes, and other facilities serving the healthcare sector in the UK.

Mediq entered the UK market in 2020 with the acquisition of H&R Healthcare. The acquisition of Bunzl Healthcare is a testament to Mediq's commitment to expansion and growth in the UK, contributing to the development of the UK's health economy and strengthening its relationships with the National Health Service (NHS). Combined operations will enable Mediq to broaden its footprint across the UK and serve a larger number of customers and patients across a wider range of channels with a more comprehensive product portfolio. 

Rothschild & Co advised on the sale of this transaction. For further detail please contact Barry Sheehan.
