Fukuda Denshi to Sell Kontron Medical SAS and Kontron Medical AG
21 August 2006
Tokyo, Japan. Fukuda Denshi, the Tokyo-based medical
instrument developer and distributor, has announced that it intends to sell
France-based Kontron Medical SAS and Switzerland-based Kontron Medical AG by
the end of 2006.
Kontron Medical is one of France's leading manufacturers and distributors
of ultrasound devices. Kontron's ultrasound products have the largest market
share among France's physicians in private practice.
The company turned Kontron Medical SAS and Kontron Medical AG into wholly
owned subsidiaries in May 2005. Fukuda Denshi has decided to sell the
subsidiaries in order to refocus on its core business strategy.
