Flower Mound, Texas-based SPBS, Inc., an employee-owned clinical equipment services company, has acquired Long Island, N.Y.-based imaging services company Deccaid Services, Inc. The latter company, which has been in operation for more than 30 years, specializes in diagnostic imaging equipment sales, service, installations, de-installations, and evaluations.

SPBS, Inc. officials say that given Deccaid’s role in the diagnostic imaging space, the acquisition will allow SPBS to offer a larger scope of clinical equipment services to current and future customers.

“This acquisition allows SPBS to fully enter into the high-end imaging services market, as well as expand even further into our established tri-state presence,” SPBS CEO Jeff Daugherty says. “We are embracing our clients’ requests to add MR/CT services, and now [we’re] more fully equipped to provide a full asset management suite of care solutions for our customers and the care of the many patients that we indirectly serve in our communities nationwide.”

Deccaid President Sal Aidone also spoke out about the acquisition, commenting: “We’re excited to be a part of a growing and transformative company like SPBS and very much look forward to combining our many years of experience to offer our customers a comprehensive equipment and service solution platform.”
