Alpha Source, Inc., Milwaukee, announced that the company has completed the acquisition of West Jordan, Utah-based BC Technical, Inc. The BC Technical deal will broaden imaging service offerings across the portfolio of companies, expanding the Alpha Source ultrasound and bone densitometry equipment service to now include maintenance, repair, and refurbished equipment for CT, MRI, and molecular imaging modalities.

Rick Lytle, CEO of Alpha Source, spoke out about the BC Technical acquisition, commenting: “With [this] announcement, Alpha Source, and its companies, expand and broaden their role as a scaled supplier of imaging services. We are excited to collaborate with BC Technical to offer a wider array of solutions and further help healthcare providers find cost-effective solutions to extend the life of their diagnostic imaging equipment.”

Earlier this year, Alpha Source also purchased Medical Optics, an endoscopy services company providing repair for scopes, cameras, and surgical tools. The addition of BC Technical to the portfolio of companies, however, brings the total number of employees to more than 350, with field engineers located in major markets around the country.

Alpha Source headquarters will remain in Milwaukee, with additional BC Technical and Medical Optics locations in Chicago, Fort Lauderdale, Fla., Louisville, Ky. and Salt Lake City.

Adds Lytle: “The talent and expertise of our employees will allow us to grow and provide our customers with unparalleled customer care that combines exceptional service, fast response times, and value.”

Moreover, the acquisition of BC Technical doubles the size of Alpha Source and creates one of the largest independent full service, imaging services and equipment repair solutions companies in the United States.
