The campus will soon house multiple manufacturing and R&D facilities focusing on Trivitron’s core segments
Trivitron Healthcare has acquired 100 per cent shareholding in the US-based The Kennedy Company, a leading manufacturer of radiation protection X-ray shielding material and acoustic barrier products.
Trivitron intends to fully support all existing operations and further expand manufacturing capabilities and develop a cutting-edge Technology Park in Scottsboro, Alabama focussed on the latest advancements. The campus will soon house multiple manufacturing and R&D facilities focusing on Trivitron’s core segments – Medical Imaging, In Vitro Diagnostics, Intensive Care and Cardiology Equipment & Consumables. This campus will act as the manufacturing hub for the United States of America operations of the Trivitron Group.
Dr GSK Velu, CMD, Trivitron Healthcare said, “With this acquisition, Trivitron will now have a manufacturing and R&D presence in India, the US, Finland, Turkey, China and Austria.’’
Post integration, the new entity would become a part of Trivitron Healthcare Americas, operating as Kennedy Vinyl for the existing X-ray shielding and acoustic noise control business and Kennedy Radiology for Radiation Protection Products manufactured in the US. The organisation would be led by Sesh Sarathy, who spearheaded Trivitron Group's M&A efforts in North America, as President, Sales and Business Development, and Sarah Kennedy Precise, who’s been a part of the Kennedy team for more than two decades, as President, Operations.
