Apex Medical has fully acquired SLK Vertriebs and SLK Medical, the leading manufacturer and service provider in Intermittent Pneumatic Compression (IPC), Hoist and Pressure Area Care in Germany.
SLK is established by a group of health care professionals that has been perfected in cooperation with physicians, nursing staff and retail partners.
The product development has been attached great importance to balancing therapeutic efficacy, user friendliness and economic efficiency to tailor the patient’s needs.
Oliver Otte, managing director of SLK, said: “We’re proud to be part of a corporation like Apex medical that continues to invest in healthcare solutions.”
As a patient-focused medical solution provider, Apex Medical develops a range of products in Pressure Area Care, Respiratory Therapy, and medical equipment with the market covering worldwide across Asia, Europe, North and South America.
With this acquisition, Apex Medical reinforces its leading position in delivering more comprehensive product portfolio and service in Germany and Europe.
It is expected to have IPC and Hoist from SLK as the new supplement to Apex Medical’s product line.
Moreover, SLK puts its business focus on the home care and post-acute care market currently. The cooperation with Apex Medical will also equip SLK with more resources, including the introduction of high-end mattresses such as Serene, Pro-care series and other products to enable SLK to gradually move to hospital business.
The future integration of resources between Apex Medical and SLK will create more operational synergies and strategic development in Europe for both parties as a whole.
Scott Chen, CEO of Apex Medical, said: “With SLK’s strong Germany presence, we’ll be able to further enhance our service levels and distribution efficiencies in that region.”
