Probo Medical, a company offering medical imaging equipment, parts, repair and service and a portfolio company of Avista Capital Partners, has bought the MRI coil repair operation from Creative Foam Inc., a Fenton, Mich.-based services provider focused on the design, engineering and manufacturing of a range of services in the transportation and healthcare markets.
The deal works to allow Probo Medical to offer an expanded suite of MRI coil repairs to complement its repair capabilities in other diagnostic imaging modalities. Probo Medical plans to relocate all MRI coil repair operations to its Tampa, Fla-based headquarters. Additionally, Probo has entered into a partnership with Creative Foam for re-foaming of MRI coils, which Creative Foam will continue to provide to its customers.
“The synergies this acquisition provides greatly enhance Probo’s ability to serve our growing diagnostic imaging repair segment,” comments Michael Asmer, CEO of Probo Medical LLC. “Adding this level of expertise to our existing, world-class ultrasound sales, service and repair capabilities fits squarely within the value proposition we provide to our customers needing to buy, service and repair their equipment.”
