TCL Healthcare Equipment (Shanghai) Co., Ltd. (“TCL Healthcare Equipment”) today announced that it has completed the acquisition of the majority stake of Eckert & Ziegler’s HDR brachytherapy business. The business now has been fully transferred and operated under the new legal entity called BEBIG Medical GmbH (“BEBIG Medical”).

 

BEBIG Medical has inherited the essence of the HDR brachytherapy business from Eckert & Ziegler including but not limited to the cutting-edge technologies, reliable manufacturing qualities, comprehensive go-to-market resources as well as the team of professionals. It will be operated independently under the original brand name “BEBIG” and has announced an upgraded new look of the logo today. Eckert & Ziegler BEBIG GmbH (“Eckert & Ziegler”) will retain a minority stake and serve as a strategic partner going forward.

“The alliance of the two companies will make BEBIG Medical a more significant market leader in the HDR brachytherapy market, in particular in China,” Said Dr. Harald Hasselmann, the Member of Executive Board of Eckert & Ziegler AG, “TCL Healthcare Equipment shares both our strategy and our values and is therefore the best choice to drive the growth of the HDR business worldwide. The independent operation of BEBIG Medical will also allow it to focus more on the technology development, respond faster to the customer needs and present even stronger in the market.”

Mr. George Chan, the Chairman of TCL Healthcare Equipment said, “This acquisition is a perfect fit with our company strategy to expand its oncology radiation therapy business. We treasure the outstanding legacy that Eckert & Ziegler has created in the field of HDR brachytherapy in the past decades and are determined to invest more and grow BEBIG Medical stronger. The new look of the logo for the brand name “BEBIG” not only shows a business continuity, but also underlines the team’s pioneering spirit and its engineering expertise in the HDR brachytherapy industry. It is unique and bold and best describes the BEBIG Medical organization and its mission --- affordable healthcare to everyone.”

TCL Healthcare Equipment and Eckert & Ziegler has already run a joint venture for the China market since 2019. This alliance is now being expanded to the worldwide commercialization of HDR brachytherapy business. Now it’s time to be big.
