AQUAPORIN ACQUIRES GOLGI ApS
Aquaporin expands by acquiring 100% of the share capital of Golgi ApS – the first company of its kind capable of large-scale production of the aquaporin protein, the key component of the Aquaporin Inside™ technology.
Golgi was founded in 2016 with Aquaporin A/S and Danica Pension as anchor investors. Golgi has in a record time established facilities capable of large-scale production of the membrane protein.
The supply of the aquaporin protein is essential to the Aquaporin Inside™ membranes, and with the acquisition of Golgi, Aquaporin takes full control of this critical part of the supply chain.
Peter Holme Jensen, CEO of Aquaporin comments: “Aquaporin is in a rapid commercial development – and with a constant eye to secure our business and capability to grow, we are pleased to take full control of the aquaporin protein production.”
The Aquaporin Inside™ technology is based on nature’s own 100% selective and extremely effective water channel. The aquaporin protein is found in all living cells and let water pass. The Aquaporin Inside™ technology replicate nature’s own way of filtering water by incorporating aquaporin proteins into our membranes, resulting in commercial products just as selective and effective as in nature.
