Leading medical device outsource (MDO) manufacturer, Integer Holdings Corporation, has announced the close of its acquisition of Oscor, Inc., a privately-held company that designs, develops, manufactures and markets a comprehensive portfolio of highly specialized medical devices, venous access systems and diagnostic catheters and implantable devices. From concept to commercialization, Oscor offers its customers a complete line of finished introducer systems, guiding sheaths and proprietary lead wire technologies serving the higher-growth cardiac pacing, electrophysiology, neurostimulation, cardiovascular, peripheral vascular and structural heart markets.
“The acquisition of Oscor strengthens Integer’s ability to serve our customers by expanding our product offering in steerable sheaths and cardiac and neurostimulation leads and adding low-cost manufacturing capacity to support growth,” said Joe Dziedzic, Integer president and CEO. “The addition of Oscor’s strong brand will deepen our relationships with existing customers, bring new customers to Integer, and allow us to build relationships with several emerging growth companies. We are thrilled to welcome Oscor associates to the Integer team.”
In addition, the acquisition further broadens Integer’s research and development capabilities and expands its manufacturing presence to the Dominican Republic, augmenting Integer’s already extensive global footprint and manufacturing capabilities.
“Since launched by my father, Dr. Peter Osypka, nearly 40 years ago, Oscor has been a pioneer in the field of implantable medical technology and electrophysiology,” said Thomas Osypka, Oscor’s owner, president and CEO. “I am proud of Oscor’s strong record of accomplishments, which the team can now accelerate by uniting with Integer.”
