Varian Medical Systems Acquiring Claymount to Expand Imaging Components Portfolio

Netherlands-based Claymount supplies components and subsystems for medical X-ray imaging

August 18, 2015 — Varian Medical Systems Inc. announced it has, through one of its European subsidiaries, agreed to acquire Claymount, a privately-held, Netherlands-based supplier of components and subsystems for X-ray imaging equipment manufacturers. Varian's subsidiary in the Netherlands will pay approximately €50 million in cash for Claymount. The transaction was expected to close early in August.

Claymount is one of the world's leading suppliers of high-voltage connectors, ionization chambers and solid state automatic exposure control systems for controlling dose during medical X-ray imaging. It also supplies buckies for digital radiography equipment, mammography paddles, X-ray collimators and high-voltage generators for powering radiography equipment. Claymount is a strategic supplier to many global medical X-ray equipment manufacturers and has annual revenues of nearly €30 million.

Claymount has about 250 employees with manufacturing sites in the Netherlands, Philippines and the United States as well as offices in Switzerland, Italy and China. The Claymount team will operate under Managing Director Joel Nijenhuis who will report to Sunny Sanyal as part of Varian Imaging Components.
