ELANCO has bought Lohmann Animal Health, a leading German poultry vaccine supplier and marketer of feed additives.

The acquisition will establish Elanco - the animal health division of US pharmaceutical giant Eli Lilly and Company - as a global poultry leader, solidify Elanco's vaccine presence.

It also broadens Elanco's total product offerings and significantly augments its vaccine manufacturing capabilities.

"Effectively competing in the animal vaccine segment is a cornerstone of Elanco's long-term strategy and is one more way we will expand the value we create for customers," said senior vice president of Eli Lilly and Elanco Animal Health president, Jeff Simmons.

"The addition of Lohmann Animal Health provides a unique opportunity for Elanco to expand our presence in the poultry market and to enter the global poultry vaccine market with a solid base, established products, and global commercial and manufacturing capabilities."
