Symmetry to buy electrosurgical specialist Olsen
This article was originally published in Clinica
Orthopaedic implant specialist Symmetry Medical is moving into the electrosurgical market, by agreeing to acquire privately-held Olsen Medical for an undisclosed fee. Louisville, Kentucky-based Olsen manufactures electrosurgical instruments and accessories, including single-use and reusable bipolar and monopolar forceps, cords, and electrosurgical pens and pencils. The company primarily sells its products via distributors; in the US this includes Symmetry's wholly-owned subsidiary Specialty Surgical Instrumentation (SSI).
