Key Surgical Announces Acquisition

Key Surgical LLC, a leading global provider of sterile processing and operating room supplies, announced today that it has acquired Sarasota, Fla.-based Encompas Unlimited to expand the company’s endoscopy product offering.

Encompas is the second acquisition that Key Surgical has completed since it merged with Interlock Medizintechnik GmbH last year to become a leading provider to hospitals and surgical centers around the world.  Founded more than 30 years ago, Encompas specializes in manufacturing, assembling, and distributing a range of endoscopy accessories and supplies.  Key Surgical will incorporate Encompas’ endoscopy supplies into its portfolio of more than 3,000 products used by hospitals and surgery centers for patient procedures, as well as to clean and sterilize their surgical instrumentation.

Brian O’Connell, president and chief operating officer, Key Surgical, said, “We are excited to broaden our offering to our customers and their patients with the addition of Encompas.  The company has an excellent reputation for offering high-quality products, and we are excited to build on Key Surgical’s existing presence in the growing endoscopy market.”

Encompas will become part of Key Surgical and its products will be available directly from Key Surgical by the end of July.
