SunMed, a North American manufacturer and distributor of consumable medical devices for anesthesia and respiratory care and backed by Frazier Healthcare Partners, has purchased Vyaire Medical‘s business unit that manufactures and markets respiratory and anesthesia consumables focused on airway management and operative care.

The respiratory and anesthesia consumables business of Vyaire offers airway management and operative care technology, including AirLife oxygen therapy and Vital Signs anesthesia circuits. The combined business looks to drive innovation and offer product supply for customers while delivering consumable respiratory and anesthesia medical products to provide better outcomes for the patients.

This combination represents an exciting growth opportunity for SunMed that will strengthen our already robust core consumables business and further differentiate our ability to meet our customers’ needs,” says Hank Struik, CEO of SunMed. “Vyaire’s respiratory and anesthesia business brings an impressive manufacturing platform, which will add to our already deep North American manufacturing presence, a strong product pipeline with some of the most trusted brands in the market and deep relationships with customers and distributors. This transaction will enable us to deliver even greater innovation, predictability and value for our customers, their practitioners and their patients – all on an expanded global basis.”
