Ascom, a leading provider of mission-critical communications worldwide, has broadened it's empire through acquiring GE Healthcare's Nurse Call business in June of this year.
GE Healthcare is a leading nurse call supplier in North America with revenues in excess of USD 20 million in 2011. This acquisition gives Ascom the opportunity to penetrate the lucrative North American market as well as gain intellectual property through retaining existing GE employees. As a result, a combined offering can be created with features and functionality more closely aligned to customer needs.
Fritz Mumenthaler, CEO of Ascom, says: “Ascom is very pleased to have acquired a business with such a good strategic fit. This transaction represents the next step in building and strengthening the leading position of our Wireless Solutions Division in the healthcare communications market”.
