Founded in 1967 Xograph is said to be the largest independent medical imaging equipment supplier throughout the UK and Ireland serving NHS and HSE hospitals, private hospitals, clinics and diagnostic centres. It provides medical imaging technology supported by a nationwide team of highly trained field-based engineers and clinical applications specialists.
Healthcare 21 Group chairman Owen Curtin said: “The acquisition of Xograph Healthcare maintains our exciting programme of growth and expansion, accelerating our drive to become a pan-European, best-in-class provider of specialist sales, marketing and technical service solutions for our world-leading healthcare and scientific supplier partners.
“Acquiring Xograph confirms our commitment to the highly innovative medical technology and diagnostic technical services industry. The Xograph business, combined with our existing teams, now makes the Healthcare 21 Group one the largest players in the sector across the UK and Irish healthcare market.”
The newly combined business will employ up to 500 staff in the UK, Ireland, Germany and Austria, representing more than 100 original equipment manu-facturers across its four European markets.
Xograph managing director Paul Andrews added: “I am so proud to be leading Xograph Healthcare through one of the most dynamic periods in the company’s 53-year history. As the newest member of the Healthcare 21 team we can now realise new growth potential, share best practices with other HC21 business units and deliver customer service excellence with every interaction.”
