DirectMed Parts & Service, a Poway, Calif.-based medical imaging parts, systems, and service company, has acquired Technical Prospects, LLC, a provider of parts, training, and support for medical imaging equipment.
Founded by former Siemens engineer Robert Probst, Technical Prospects has operated from its facility in Appleton, Wis, serving customers across the U.S. and internationally for nearly 30 years. Since the company’s founding in 1997, it has been the leading parts supplier for Siemens imaging equipment, with coverage across multiple modalities.
“The team at DirectMed has long viewed Technical Prospects as the leading aftermarket Siemens imaging parts and service company in the U.S.,” says Brad de Koning, president and CEO of DirectMed. “The opportunity to partner with them supports our vision of becoming the most trusted resource in aftermarket diagnostic imaging equipment. There will be no immediate changes to the Technical Prospects brand, the Appleton operations, or the level of commitment to their customer base.”
Technical Prospects is led by president and CEO, Jeremy Probst, who has spent over 20 years in the medical imaging and engineering field.
“From our initial discussions with the DirectMed team, it was clear how closely our missions aligned to extend the life of medical imaging equipment and lower costs for healthcare providers,” says Probst. “This partnership with DirectMed will provide Technical Prospects with expanded resources to deliver an even higher level of service and expertise to our customers. This will include a greater breadth and depth of parts, full systems, and technical support. After almost 30 years of independent operations, we are excited to partner with DirectMed for our next chapter of growth.”
Tanner LoRusso, vice president of sales for DirectMed, adds, “Partnering with Technical Prospects not only expands our scope of parts and systems offering given their deep Siemens expertise, but widens our parts modality coverage further in cardiac cath lab, ultrasound, mammography, fluoroscopy, and radiography. Technical Prospects’ mission of providing the medical imaging community with pre-owned, high quality, and cost-effective imaging parts aligns directly with our own. We are looking forward to working with Jeremy and the rest of the Technical Prospects team in achieving our shared goals.”
