"Elanco's acquisition of Novartis Animal Health brings together two strong companies with a passion for serving the customer," said Elanco India country director Velisetty Ashok Kumar in a statement.

The value of acquisition of Novartis Animal Health India was not revealed while Elanco acquired the global business of Novartis Animal Health in 2014 for $5.4 billion.

The acquisition follows the purchase of Lohmann Animal Health in 2014.

"Both strategic investments position the company to offer a more diversified product offering and capabilities to help customers sustain and grow their businesses," said Elanco in the statement.

The company announced increased investments in R & D while highlighting that the complete integration of the businesses will take time.

Greenfield, Indiana-headquartered Elanco is a division of Eli Lilly and Company operating in more than 70 countries.
