Medical imaging equipment, parts, repair, and service provider Probo Medical announces the acquisition of St. Cloud, Fla.-based SonoDepot. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
SonoDepot, founded in 1985, is a third-party service, maintenance, and repair organization with specialization in ultrasound equipment. SonoDepot’s team of field service engineers have a history of assisting hospitals, physician offices, and imaging centers across the United States with their ultrasound maintenance, service, and sales needs. SonoDepot, led today by Floyd McAuliffe and Jack McAuliffe, also offers ultrasound equipment leasing solutions to its customers.
“We are excited to welcome the SonoDepot team to Probo Medical,” says Michael Asmer, CEO of Probo Medical. “With their deep technical expertise across OEM models, the SonoDepot team has established themselves as one of the premier service and repair businesses in the ultrasound sector. Adding the SonoDepot field-service engineers to Probo’s existing service footprint extends Probo as a coast-to-coast third-party service provider and we’re excited to support SonoDepot’s customers with the added-resources of Probo.”
SonoDepot President Floyd McAuliffe adds, “Partnering with Probo provides SonoDepot with a proven platform and management team that will allow the business to continue to thrive into the future. With Probo’s vast inventory of ultrasound parts, probes, and systems, we are excited for the positive impacts this will have on our ability to exceed our customers’ expectations. We would like to express our gratitude to the thousands of sonographers that we’ve had the joy of serving for nearly 40 years, and to our employees that have taken SonoDepot to this level.”
Probo Medical is backed by Varsity Healthcare Partners, a lower middle-market private equity investment firm focused on partnering with founders, entrepreneurs, and management teams to build healthcare services companies.
