US-based Varian Medical Systems European subsidiary has agreed to acquire Netherlands-based Claymount, for around €50m, allowing the firm to expand its imaging components portfolio.
Claymount is a privately-held supplier of components and subsystems for X-ray imaging equipment manufacturers.
The company supplies high voltage connectors, ionization chambers and solid state automatic exposure control systems for controlling dose during medical X-ray imaging.
It also provides buckies for digital radiography equipment, mammography paddles, X-ray collimators, and high-voltage generators for powering radiography equipment.
Varian Medical Systems CEO Dow Wilson said: "Claymount’s products complement our offerings and are a perfect fit for our Imaging Components business with great customer and channel synergies.
"This acquisition has the added benefit of being able to provide lower cost components for our Oncology Systems and Particle Therapy businesses."
With around 250 employees, Claymount has manufacturing facilities in the Netherlands, Philippines and the US, in addition to offices in Switzerland, Italy and China.
The deal is expected to complete in early August.
Varian produces medical devices and software to treat cancer and other medical conditions with radiation. It also provides comprehensive solutions for radiotherapy, radiosurgery, proton therapy and brachytherapy, as well as supplies X-ray imaging components.
