January 9, 2014 — Swissray International Inc., a digital radiography (DR) vendor, said it completed the acquisition of the Norland assets from Cooper Surgical Inc.
The only name change will be to "Norland, at Swissray." Swissray plans to maintain the same manufacturing plant located in Fort Atkinson, Wis. The acquisition furthers Swissray's participation in ionizing radiation-based imaging.
"Swissray operates on five continents and Norland manufacturing enhances our global capabilities and engineering strength," said Jack Lee, president and CEO, Swissray Global. "Also, Swissray will build Norland's position as the premier supplier of bone densitometry systems with a promise of delivering the most accurate DXA systems utilizing the lowest radiation dose in the market."
Norland is the developer of the XR-600 and XR-800 DXA dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) tables.
