Welch Allyn Continues Buying Spree with Acquisition of Scale Maker
Tuesday, May 5, 2015
Welch Allyn announced Tuesday it has acquired Scale-Tronix Inc., a White Plains-based maker of medical scales and patient weighing systems for hospitals, clinic and extended-care facilities.
The acquisition is the fourth that the Skaneateles-based maker of medical diagnostic devices has made in less than a year as it adjusts to rapid changes in the health care industry.
Welch Allyn said the acquisition of Scale-Tronix allows it to better serve its hospital and physician customers by offering them a variety of clinical-grade scales that capture a vital piece of patient-specific information.
