Airon Corporation was strategically acquired by Inspiration Healthcare Group plc, a global medical technology company based in the United Kingdom.
The acquisition will leverage Airon’s established, trusted brand presence with the pNeuton ventilators and MACS CPAP Systems, and add Airon’s innovative and complementary products to Inspiration Healthcare’s strong product portfolio to serve customers across an even wider global distribution network.
It is not expected that there will be any changes to Airon in the immediate future as Inspiration Healthcare looks to further invest in the business. Airon will continue to provide its products and accessories to hospitals and EMS agencies, along with its renowned exceptional technical service.
Eric Gjerde, founder and CEO of Airon will stay on to manage the business. He said: “We are excited to be joining Inspiration Healthcare. The Company has a strong portfolio of best-in-class products that will be of significant value to our customers and the patients they serve. We look forward to future collaborative product development which can impact clinical use of both Inspiration Healthcare and Airon products and markets. I would like to thank our customers and staff for their continued support as Airon embarks on the next part of its journey.”
Neil Campbell, CEO of Inspiration Healthcare, commented: “The acquisition of Airon is an important strategic milestone for Inspiration Healthcare. I am delighted to welcome the Airon team to Inspiration Healthcare and look forward to working together to provide innovative, superior lifesaving technologies to the marketplace.”
