Owens & Minor completes acquisition of American Contract Systems purchase

Dec. 20, 2021

Owens & Minor, Inc. reported they have completed the acquisition of American Contract Systems (ACS), a Minnesota-based provider of kitting and sterilization services for Custom Procedure Tray (CPT) solution.

“Bringing into Owens & Minor the capabilities that American Contract Systems offers in the CPT market will further strengthen our ability to meet and exceed our customers’ collective needs for surgical procedure trays,” said Edward A. Pesicka, President and CEO of Owens & Minor. “

The close of the acquisition represents the first by Owens & Minor since the acquisition of Halyard Health in 2018. The ACS acquisition expands our existing U.S-based kitting operations, and advances our focus on local solutions and local support for Owens & Minor customers.

According to the release, ACS provides a proprietary, environmentally sound sterilization process to the CPTs that is easily deployed near the point-of-use. This unique sterilization solution, already deployed in facilities across the U.S., will be combined with Owens & Minor’s Americas-based footprint.
