NMS Capital, New York, N.Y., has partnered with company management in the recapitalization of DirectMed Parts & Service, LLC. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
Headquartered in San Diego, Calif., DirectMed is the largest independent source for service and supply of medical imaging parts for MRI and CT machines. Leveraging its inventory of 60,000+ parts across 5,000+ unique SKUs, the company provides 24/7 solutions to major OEMs, such as GE, Siemens, and Philips, and to independent service organizations (ISOs), imaging centers, hospital systems, and parts suppliers across North America, Latin America, and Europe. The company’s staff of electrical engineers, physicists, and technicians supports customers who require an efficient, price-effective solution to getting imaging equipment back online.
As the complexity and cost of repair and maintenance of technical equipment increases and budgets remain stagnant, hospitals and care providers increasingly turn to aftermarket parts and equipment providers to support continued operations.
“DirectMed has developed and acquired internal repair capabilities and made material investments in inventory and fixed assets to set us up for our next phase of growth,” says Brad de Koning, DirectMed’s president and CEO. “Working with NMS to analyze and finance acquisitions and to assess opportunities for expansion into new diagnostic imaging modalities will accelerate our progress. With its depth of knowledge in the medical imaging equipment industry, NMS provides tremendous benefits to our customers and to our team.”
