Aug 18 2015 Read 808 Times
Varian Medical Systems has, through one of its European subsidiaries, agreed to acquire Claymount, a privately-held, Netherlands-based supplier of components and subsystems for X-ray imaging equipment manufacturers. Varian's subsidiary in the Netherlands will pay approximately €50 million in cash for Claymount. The transaction was expected to close early in August.
Claymount is one of the world's leading suppliers of high voltage connectors, ionisation chambers and solid state automatic exposure control systems for controlling dose during medical X-ray imaging. It also supplies buckies for digital radiography equipment, mammography paddles, X-ray collimators, and high-voltage generators for powering radiography equipment. Claymount is a strategic supplier to many global medical X-ray equipment manufacturers and has annual revenues of nearly €30 million.
"We are impressed with the Claymount team," said Sunny Sanyal, president of Imaging Components for Varian. "Claymount extends our technical expertise while giving us additional cost-efficient manufacturing capabilities. Together, we will expand our addressable market with new integrated offerings that should help us grow our share of the global imaging components market. We are excited to have them as a part of our team."
"There is a great strategic fit between both companies," said Joel Nijenhuis, managing director of Claymount. "We market a complementary product portfolio and can benefit from each other's knowledge and strengths. With a strong team on board and support from Varian, we can accelerate product development and expand our business. We look forward to this opportunity."
Claymount has about 250 employees with manufacturing sites in the Netherlands, Philippines and the United States as well as offices in Switzerland, Italy and China. The Claymount team will operate under Nijenhuis who will report to Sanyal as part of Varian Imaging Components.
