DirectMed is owned by Mercury Partners.
Based in Longmont, Colorado, Medical Systems Technologies (“MST”) is the most comprehensive service provider for subassemblies, circuit boards and subsystems for medical imaging equipment. Founded by Bruce Smith, an electrical engineer with 40 years of experience in medical imaging, including 16 years with GE Healthcare, the company is the foremost depot level repair service provider for healthcare networks, independent service organizations and diagnostic imaging parts suppliers.
Both companies are certified and compliant with ISO 13485:2016, the quality management system that meets the most rigorous regulations for the medical device marketplace.
Brad de Koning, CEO of DirectMed Parts & Service, LLC, commented: “In our 10-year history of working together, we have trusted MST with our most complex electronic repair requirements. This acquisition accelerates our plan to vertically integrate and control additional key component repair capabilities and quality metrics. DirectMed will rebrand the MST business, operate the company’s facility in Colorado, retain its employees, and appoint Bruce Smith as our Senior Engineer.”
“DirectMed Parts & Service is the perfect home for Medical Systems Technologies,” said Bruce Smith, MST’s owner. “DirectMed has made a concerted effort to insource more of its imaging parts repair capabilities, so MST is a natural fit. My team will greatly benefit from DirectMed’s larger customer base, financial and operating resources, and commitment to supplying parts and services for the most recent technologies. I look forward to supporting the success of our newly combined customer base.”
