Co-operation agreement with Tofflon

Aqua-Nova AB and Shanghai Tofflon Science and Technology Company jointly announced today that they have entered into a strategic co-operation agreement.

Under the conditions of the agreement Tofflon will manufacture and market the Aqua-Nova® water stills and pure steam generators in China. Aqua-Nova will be responsible for the marketing of the Tofflon® freeze dryers in the Nordic countries.

Xiaodong Zheng of Tofflon said:”The cooperation of Aqua-Nova and Tofflon is based on a mutual understanding; and also a great chance for Chinese Pharmaceutical Industry to move foreward, not only for technology but a big future development for Aqua-Nova and Tofflon as well.”

Gunnar Bjorksten of Aqua-Nova said: “We consider ourselves fortunate to have found a partner such as Tofflon. We are very impressed by the Tofflon management team as well as the company’s personnel and production facilities. The two companies represent in our opinion a perfect fit; no doubt the state of the art production facilities of Tofflon in combination with our unique and well-proven distillation-separation technology will yield excellent results. Now also customers in China will be able to profit from the advantages that the Aqua-Nova® equipment offers. Further our organisation in Sweden will give Tofflon® an excellent basis for establishing itself as the leading supplier of freeze-dryers also in Scandinavia.”
