Bayer to sell Multi-Vendor Service business

In an effort to focus more on its radiology business, Bayer announced its decision this summer to sell its Multi-Vendor Service (MVS) operations to Resilience Capital Partners and North Park Capital Partners (Resilience/North Park).

The MVS business, which provided repairs and maintenance primarily for non-Bayer radiology devices, such as MR coils and ultrasound transducers, formed an extension of the Medrad MR coil manufacturing business for the repair of multi-vendor coils in 1996.

Operations take place at three depot repair centers in Pittsburgh, PA; Tulsa, OK; and Maastricht, the Netherlands, with each maintaining an ISO 13485 certification.

The purchase, according to a Bayer spokesperson who spoke with HCB News, supports long-term sustainability for MVS in the third-party radiology device repair sector. Bayer’s choice to sell to Resilience/North Park was due to its experience in forming stand-alone companies.

Bayer will continue to oversee its service business, providing such support for the devices it produces.
