German radioactive components maker to build factory near Warsaw


Eckert & Ziegler, one of the world's leading providers of isotope technology for medical, scientific and industrial use, is planning to build a factory of radiopharmaceuticals for PET imaging near Warsaw, Puls Biznesu has learnt. The project will have the form of a joint venture with Euromedic, the pan-European medical services provider. Karolin Riehle, a spokeswoman for Eckert & Ziegler, confirmed that such a project was "in progress", but declined to give further details.

Eckert & Ziegler has long been a supplier of radiopharmaceuticals to the Polish market, which depends on imports to satisfy much of the local demand. Its decision to locate production in Poland appears to have been precipitated by the plans of two Polish firms, Voxel and Synektik, to manufacture PET pharmaceuticals in the country.

Eckert & Ziegler operates in four business segments: radiation therapy, isotope products, radiopharma and environmental services. Its focus is on applications in cancer therapy, industrial radiometry, nuclear medical diagnostics and on the disposal of low and medium level radioactive waste.
