Owens & Minor To Purchase Medical Action Industries

Owens & Minor is leveraging its history of working with Medical Action as its largest channel partner to advance its service offering to provider and manufacturer customers.

Medical Action Industries is the leading manufacturer/distributor of Operating Room Disposable supplies, Containment Systems for Medical Waste, Minor Procedure Kits and Trays, Bedside Products and Disposable Supplies for Medical Laboratories.

Although the products have been primarily marketed to acute facilities in domestic and international markets, Medical Action over the recent years has expanded its end-user base to include physician, dental, veterinary offices and out-patient surgery centers and long-term care facilities.

Medical Action Industries’ business strategy, prior to its acquisition, included (1) increasing market share with current customers and entering new markets with existing product lines; (2) accelerating the internal development of new products for our existing markets; (3) pursuing acquisitions that complement the existing product lines; (4) introducing products into the international marketplace; and (5) increasing productivity by maximizing the utilization of the existing facilities.

Medical Action Industries’ products are divided into two principal markets: (1) clinical care and (2) patient care.
