GBUK is pleased to announce that on the 28th March 2014 it acquired Quintal Healthcare, a leading player in the field of patient moving and handling equipment.
Quintal Healthcare provides a comprehensive range of seated and lateral transfer boards, glide sheets in Launderable, Non Launderable and Disposable material formats, patient turning equipment and handling belts. Quintal has an acknowledged reputation for providing quality products at competitive prices and for collaborating closely with users to remain at the forefront of product innovation.
The acquisition of Quintal Healthcare represents a fantastic opportunity for GBUK to expand its already significant presence within the UK medical device market and Quintal’s comprehensive portfolio of manual handling products will undoubtedly provide a positive contribution towards the healthy growth being enjoyed by GBUK.
Guy Mills, owner of GBUK commented that:
“The acquisition of Quintal Healthcare is an important step for GBUK. Strategically it will reinforce our Healthcare division by providing us with a strong base in a new and complementary market segment for GBUK. It brings material revenues from a fast growing product range, an attractive pipeline and commercial capabilities on which we will build.
Moreover, I am pleased that the integration of Quintal Healthcare into GBUK will also undoubtedly benefit our customers with increased commercial and logistical capabilities enabling us to offer an even better level of customer support and service in the future.
Everyone at GBUK is really excited by the opportunities provided by this acquisition and we are looking forward to welcoming and working with Quintal employees to build a successful and prosperous future with the Quintal brand.”
Plans are underway to integrate Quintal Healthcare into GBUK Healthcare with existing employees and facilities being retained as part of the acquisition.
