BC Technical, West Jordan, Utah, a non-OEM provider of medical imaging parts and services, has announced that it acquired Virtual Medical Sales. This strategic acquisition allows BC Technical to expand its resources and inventory and strengthen the company’s capabilities, specifically within MR and CT modalities.

Virtual Medical Sales (VMS), Syracuse, NY, is a provider of full service and magnet maintenance for GE and Siemens MRI and GE and Toshiba CT scanners. Tim Wright and Michael Siano, the former owners of Virtual Medical Sales, will be on hand to ensure the transition over the next year goes smoothly for all VMS customers.

“We’re pleased to welcome the Virtual Medical Sales team into the BC Technical family,” said Mark Alvarez, president and CEO of BC Technical. “Each time our team grows, we know we’re improving our service capabilities for our ongoing vision of being the only true alternative to the OEM. We have no plans to slow down.”

“BC Technical’s values resonate with our own, and we’re proud to join our teams together. This was an obvious next step for us,” said Tim Wright. Michael Siano added, “We’re confident BC Technical will not only maintain quality service for our existing customers, but also take the organization to the next level.”

According to the announcement from BC Technical, the company feels the field engineer talent and resources included in this acquisition will help solidify its position as a nationwide, independent service, systems, and parts provider for CT, MR, NM, PET and PET/CT, and a viable alternative to the OEM.
