Össur closes acquisition of College Park Industries
As previously announced, Össur signed an agreement to acquire College Park Industries in July 2019 and the acquisition was approved by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) in April 2020. The transaction has now been officially closed and College Park is now wholly owned by Össur. As part of the transaction, the Espire Elbow line has been acquired by UK-based Steeper Group. College Park’s pro-forma FY2019 sales excluding the Espire sales amount to approximately USD 20 million.
College Park is a global provider of prosthetic devices and supporting services headquartered in Michigan, USA. As previously communicated, College Park will largely remain independent and continue to diligently serve its customer base, while allowing the combined entity to achieve strategic efficiencies. Össur remains committed to growing the College Park brand globally over the coming years. The acquisition is yet another display of Össur’s commitment to elevate customer experience and improving people’s mobility.
