Atos Medical has announced the acquisition of the German tracheostomy company TRACOE medical, including NL-based MC Europe and of UK-based Kapitex Healthcare.
“I am truly excited that TRACOE, MC Europe and Kapitex will join the Atos family. We share a strong vision of making life easier for people living with a neck stoma and we have complimentary capabilities that will enable us to serve customers worldwide even better in the future. I am convinced that combining our companies will strengthen our ability to fast track the journey towards becoming a full range global player in the tracheostomy segment, through a combined hospital and direct-to-consumer model and with a strong production footprint in Sweden and Germany,” says Britt Meelby Jensen, CEO of Atos Medical.
