“We will continue to offer a growing product portfolio for both the Acumed and OsteoMed brands, leverage investments in systems and processes, and create business continuity with manufacturing and inventory in multiple locations,” Wolfington added. “As always, our goal is to deliver comprehensive solutions to assist our customers in achieving optimal patient outcomes and restoration of function.”
