Richardson Electronics has entered into an agreement to purchase the assets of South Carolina-based International Medical Equipment and Service (IMES).
Terms of the deal have not been disclosed.
Richardson Electronics through its subsidiary Richardson Healthcare is acquiring IMES, which provides cost-saving solutions for CT and MRI equipment of major brands across the globe.
Richardson Healthcare executive vice-president and general manager Pat Fitzgerald said: "We look forward to working with Trey McIntyre and his team to bring cost effective replacement parts to Richardson customers around the world, and to selling Richardson Healthcare’s range of products including PACS displays, flat panel detectors and replacement tubes to IMES’ traditional customer base."
IMES president Trey McIntyre said: "This is a great benefit for our customers who depend on our leading quality and support. Equally as important to us, Richardson Healthcare is building an incredible team packed with expertise and experience; the team is a natural fit with our own dedicated staff."
IMES provides an extensive selection of replacement parts, as well as includes an interactive training center, on-site test bays and experienced technicians who provide round the clock customer support.
The acquisition will allow Richardson Healthcare to provide cost effective diagnostic imaging replacement parts and training to hospitals, diagnostic imaging centers, medical institutions and independent service organizations.
