Romaco expands processing business taking over of Spanish manufacturer STE Tecpharm
With the acquisition of the Spanish manufacturer STE Tecpharm, S. L., Romaco strengthens its position as a turnkey supplier of processing technologies. In particular, Tecpharm’s patented drum coaters will complement Romaco Innojet’s granulation and fluid bed technologies.

Tecpharm's core competencies as a supplier of equipment for the pharmaceutical industry comprise the development, assembly and marketing of coating systems for tablets.
