“We’ve known Water Street for many years. When they approached us about merging our company with Tri-anim to create a leading U.S. distributor of specialty health care products, they presented a very compelling, concrete plan for bringing our businesses together. Just as importantly, they had a plan for how we would succeed in the marketplace post-close and structured an arrangement where all of us maintained an ownership stake in the business. In my experience, this is no easy feat with three parties involved. I am excited about our future, as we work closely with Water Street to leverage our increased size and scale to expand into new and complementary healthcare markets.”

Bound Tree partnered with Water Street in 2008. Today, the company is the leading U.S. distributor of specialty healthcare products to the acute care and emergency services markets.
