Headquartered in Harmondsworth, England, Medequip is a leading provider of community equipment and complementary services to local authorities and the National Health Service (NHS) in the United Kingdom. Medequip serves more than 1.3 million customers every year, enabling them to live independently at home for longer, alleviating pressures on the NHS and other healthcare services. Medequip generates revenues in excess of £200 million and employs more than 1,000 people.
Medux and Medequip both have excellent reputations amongst end users, prescribers and commissioners, and they have a shared focus on ensuring healthcare remains affordable and accessible through an efficient supply of products and services. By joining forces, Medux and Medequip will strengthen their services and broaden their customer bases. Medequip will capitalize on Medux’s experience as the market leader in the Netherlands to further accelerate growth. Medequip is the first cross-border acquisition for Medux and significantly strengthens its position in the European equipment and services market.
