Zimmer Holdings, which designs, develops, manufactures and markets orthopaedic reconstructive, spinal and trauma devices, dental implants, and related surgical products, has acquired Sodem Diffusion, a manufacturer of SoPlus Orthopaedic Surgical Power Tools based in Geneva, Switzerland.
The newly formed company, after acquisition, will be re-named as Zimmer Surgical and will be part of Zimmer Surgical, headquartered in Dover, Ohio.
The acquisition is expected to broaden Zimmer‘s portfolio of surgical power tools and strengthens the company’s position in over $1bn surgical power tool market.
Sodem Diffusion’s portfolio includes the commercially available SoPlus Universal large bone system and the SoPlus Ultra small bone system with associated consumables.
Zimmer Surgical president Mark Dorris said adding SoPlus’ small and large bone product lines to their portfolio will expand their offerings in the orthopaedic power equipment market.
