Date:7/7/2009

LIONVILLE, Pa., July 7 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- West Pharmaceutical Services, Inc. (NYSE: WST) today announced that it has purchased the drug delivery device business assets of Plastef Investissements SA. Under the agreement West has obtained the right to manufacture the eris safety syringe, a passive safety system for use with fixed, or staked, needle prefillable syringes. Operations will continue at Plastef's production facility located in Le Vaudreuil, Normandy, France, which has approximately 75 employees.

The eris system for staked needle syringes complements West's NovaGuard(TM) passive safety needle, which it recently introduced to the market for use with luer-lock syringes.

Financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed. The acquisition is expected to increase West's sales revenue by an estimated $5 million to $7 million over the remainder of 2009, and the acquisition is not expected to materially affect the Company's fully diluted earnings per share this year.
