Oxford Instruments plc, a provider of high-technology tools
and systems for industry and research, announced the acquisition of Platinum Medical
Platinum is a U.S. company providing high-quality parts and
services and turnkey solutions, including equipment selection, site planning,
installation, and hands-on training for MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) and CT
(computerized tomography) medical imaging instruments. Recent healthcare
reforms in the U.S.
have encouraged medical imaging facilities to move to more cost-effective
service providers. This has presented a growing opportunity in this third-party
service market to providers like Platinum, which has enjoyed growth over recent
years due to its high level of customer focus.
The combination of Platinum with OiService, Oxford
Instruments’ existing MRI Service business in North
America, significantly strengthens the Group’s broader service
offerings and the opportunity for further development of its global service.
