Apex Medical strengthens pressure care, moving & handling and IPC offering with SLK acquisition
Apex Medical Corp. – the parent company Apex Medical UK – has expanded its manufacturing capabilities in Europe following the acquisition of German medical product and rehabilitation manufacturer SLK.
Founded in 1990, Apex Medical manufacturers a range of solutions in the pressure care, respiratory therapy and medical equipment space, with its products sold across Asia, Europe, as well as North and South America.
Now, the full acquisition of SLK Vertriebs GmbH and SLK Medical GmbH will see the Taiwanese company strengthen its position in Europe as it looks to offer a more comprehensive product and service offering.
Scott Chen, CEO of Apex Medical, commented: “With SLK’s strong Germany presence, we’ll be able to further enhance our service levels and distribution efficiencies in that region.”
The acquisition will provide Apex Medical with a range of new products for the homecare and post-acute care market place, with SLK’s product ranges specialising in pressure care, Intermittent Pneumatic Compression (IPC), bariatric care and patient moving and handling.
Additionally, the move will enable SLK to gradually move into the hospital arena, where it can benefit from Apex Medical’s presence and offering in that market with lines including its Serene mattress range and its Pro-care range.
“We’re proud to be part of a corporation like Apex Medical that continues to invest in healthcare solutions,” said Oliver Otte, Managing Director of SLK.
According to Apex Medical, it will add SLK’s IPC and hoists as new supplements to Apex Medical’s product line.https://thiis.co.uk/apex-medical-strengthens-pressure-care-moving-handling-and-ipc-offering-with-slk-acquisition/https://i1.wp.com/thiis.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/SLK-head-office-Apex-Medical.jpg?fit=900%2C503&ssl=1https://i1.wp.com/thiis.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/SLK-head-office-Apex-Medical.jpg?resize=150%2C150&ssl=1Mergers & AcquisitionsNewsroomSupplier NewsTrade NewsApex Medical Corp,bariatric care,Europe,germany,Intermittent Pneumatic Compression (IPC),patient moving and handling,Pressure Care,respiratory therapy,SLK,SLK Medical GmbH,SLK Vertriebs GmbH,TaiwanApex Medical Corp. – the parent company Apex Medical UK – has expanded its manufacturing capabilities in Europe following the acquisition of German medical product and rehabilitation manufacturer SLK.Founded in 1990, Apex Medical manufacturers a range of solutions in the pressure care, respiratory therapy and medical equipment space, with...Calvin BarnettCalvin Barnettcalvin@thiis.co.ukAdministratorTHIIS Magazine
