Siemens Healthcare and Vertec Scientific have announced a distribution partnership that allows Vertec to exclusively market the X Class range of ultrasound systems for emergency medicine, GP practices, rheumatology, orthopaedics, acute medicine, chest medicine and anaesthetics. The agreement, which is effective immediately, will see Vertec sell the systems and Siemens Healthcare’s engineers maintain the technology.
“Vertec is an established and trusted leader in the medical industry and is therefore well placed to develop our position as a specialist in innovative ultrasound solutions,” said Declan Dunphy, ultrasound product manager at Siemens Healthcare. “We welcome Vertec’s expertise and look forward to working closely together to extend our reach in unexplored and emerging markets.”
