Nipro Diagnostics, which makes diabetes-monitoring devices in Fort Lauderdale, is buying a New Hampshire company that produces nutritional and dietary supplements.
Nipro, a U.S. arm of Japan’s Nipro Corp., announced Monday it will purchase P.J. Noyes Co. for an undisclosed price. P.J. Noyes is based in Lancaster, N.H., and employs about 100 people. Nipro Diagnostics employs about 600 people in Broward County, a spokeswoman said.
In the release, Nipro Diagnostics CEO Scott Verner said the P.J. Noyes acquisition will allow Nipro to expand its sales in the diabetic market, where nutrition management is a key part of treatment. P.J. makes pills, gels and tablets for its product, adding that manufacturing option to Nipro’s device-making operations.
