San Diego-based MXR Imaging, Inc. (formerly Merry X-Ray Corp.) announces that it has completed the acquisition of Oxford Instruments Healthcare. Previously owned by Oxford Instruments PLC, Oxford Instruments Healthcare is a provider of CT and MRI equipment sales, maintenance services, parts, and mobile imaging solutions.
The company is headquartered in Deerfield Beach, Fla., and has additional operations in Vacaville, Calif., and Ann Arbor, Mich.
MXR Imaging executives say this acquisition will expand their reach as a provider of diagnostic imaging solutions to hospitals and health care providers across North America. “Oxford Instruments Healthcare fills some important roles in completing MXR’s portfolio of comprehensive diagnostic imaging solutions,” says Jeff Root, MXR Imaging executive vice president. “Their mobile fleet rentals, coil repair, and refrigeration services are great additions to our company.”
MXR Imaging President Ted Sloan also spoke out about this acquisition, commenting: “We are very excited about the imaging expertise and talented people that are becoming part of the MXR Imaging organization. Our new colleagues will get us another step closer to our goal of providing complete imaging solutions for our customers.”
“Our mission is to improve the clinical and financial success of our customers by delivering innovative diagnostic imaging solutions,” Sloan adds. “We believe the Oxford Instruments Healthcare team and products will help us do just that.”
Looks like a sound investment to expand MXR’s role in the imaging service market. Congratulations!
