Richardson Healthcare Announces New European Headquarters in Amsterdam

Monday, February 29, 2016

LAFOX, Ill.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Richardson Healthcare, a division of Richardson Electronics, Ltd. (NASDAQ: RELL), today announced the opening of its diagnostic imaging replacement parts and training center in Amsterdam, Netherlands. Adding a center in Europe is a direct response to Europe’s growing demand for high quality, cost effective parts to help lower the cost of healthcare.

The Amsterdam facility will include quality assurance testing bays, classrooms, and replacement parts inventory, representing an extension of the offerings and expertise of International Medical Equipment and Service (IMES) located in Fort Mill, South Carolina. Richardson Electronics acquired IMES in June 2015. The new facility is co-located with Richardson Electronics European distribution hub making it ideal for shipping replacement parts quickly and cost effectively throughout Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

Because of the increasing cost pressures of healthcare delivery, Pat Fitzgerald, Executive Vice President and General Manager of Richardson Healthcare, says, “Our presence in Europe is directly in line with our goal of helping hospitals and third-party service organizations around the world lower costs. This is an important time for imaging service providers, and we are excited to bring a local parts and training solution to this market. Capitalizing on Richardson Electronics global presence and infrastructure enables us to act quickly to opportunities in the healthcare market.”

Richardson Healthcare will be exhibiting in Booth 42 at the European Congress of Radiology show in Vienna, Austria on March 3-6, and will be showcasing high-value solutions for diagnostic imaging. Highlights include:

  • High-quality replacement parts, tubes, technical support, and service training for major brands of CT and MRI equipment
  • Thales’ ArtPix™ EZ2GO DR system, an easy and affordable solution for migrating from analog or computed radiography to digital radiography
  • On-demand MRI coil solutions
