Katena Products announced the purchase of Blink Medical, a UK-based provider of primarily single use ophthalmic instruments.
Terms of the deal were not announced.
Founded in 2004, Blink Medical currently distributes its products within Europe and the Middle East.
“The acquisition of Blink Medical strengthens and expands Katena’s offering in high quality ophthalmic instrumentation,” Mark J. Fletcher, CEO of Katena Products, said in a company news release. “Single use instruments are important to our strategy and the addition of Blink also offers Katena the benefits of a physical presence in Europe.”
Roger Tyler, Founder and Managing Director of Blink Medical, adds, “The synergies created in the ophthalmic sector, by offering multiple instrument solutions to our customers will help both companies achieve their business objectives.”
