LITTLE FALLS, N.J. - October 7, 2010 - CANTEL MEDICAL CORP., through its Mar Cor Purification subsidiary, announced today that it had reached agreement with Gambro to acquire its U.S. medical water business to manufacture, sell and service all water products, components, parts and consumables solely intended for the U.S. market. Mar Cor will transition the manufacturing of these products into its ISO 13485 Registered Medical Device manufacturing facility in Plymouth, MN and immediately assume responsibility for service and support of Gambro's installed base of over 1,200 clinics and hospitals in the United States. All aligned U.S. employees of Gambro's water business will be offered employment with Mar Cor, which will help provide a smooth transition for Gambro customers. Mar Cor will be opening a new Denver office to continue to provide sales and service support.
Curt Weitnauer, President of Mar Cor Purification stated, "The Gambro heat-disinfection central system will be a great enhancement to our water-for-dialysis portfolio. The Gambro products will help us address two major trends in dialysis water systems: hot water disinfection and single patient treatment. We'll be able to offer our dialysis clinic customers the broadest and most advanced array of water treatment alternatives from chemical to heat disinfection systems."
Cantel's President and CEO, Andrew Krakauer, added, "Building atop the success of our acquisition of GE Water & Process Technologies' dialysis water business and other Mar Cor regional acquisitions, we are continuing to execute our strategy of marrying cutting-edge products with our nationwide service network to fulfill the needs of our customers. I am very pleased with the leadership of our Mar Cor group and anticipate both top and bottom-line synergies to result from this unique opportunity."
