Our team partnered with BISSELL Homecare to acquire AbilityOne Corporation in 2000. One year later, we partnered with Smith & Nephew to acquire its rehab division and merged it with AbilityOne. The combination transformed AbilityOne into the global leader in rehabilitation products distribution. Our team assisted with the integration, recruited additional management team members and helped the team develop a corporate strategy for growth. Patterson Companies, Inc., a leading supplier of dental and other healthcare products, purchased AbilityOne in 2003 to support its strategic plans for expansion. As a business of Patterson, AbilityOne continues to be the world’s leading distributor of rehabilitation products.
