Avantor, a minnow in the laboratory supply business with about $700 million in annual sales, has completed its acquisition of VWR, a whale in the industry with $4.5 billion in sales. The combination, valued at $6.5 billion, will benefit from “deeper access to the high-growth biopharma, industrial, and applied research sectors,” says Avantor CEO Michael Stubblefield.
