SLS Group-subsidiary Associated Couriers acquires unique healthcare courier service HealthEx Corp.

Associated Couriers Inc., leading US supplier for radiopharmaceutical logistics recently taken over by SLS Group, acquires HealthEx Corp., thus extending Associated Couriers outstanding healthcare position in the North American market

HealthEx Corp., a courier service dedicated exclusively to the healthcare community, was founded in the State of New York in 1999 and since then developed into an outstanding specialist for logistics services like the delivery of laboratory specimen, pharmaceuticals, radioactive materials, and home healthcare products. HealthEx has built a distinctive platform with strategically located dispatch centers throughout the US, covering 30 plus states and allowing for more regionalized and decentralized distribution that reduces the average length of haul and facilitates speedier delivery. Based on this network, HealthEx reaches a turnover of approx. $ 30 million per year.

Matt Silverberg, CEO Associated Couriers: “HealthEx is the perfect match for us in terms of service portfolio, customer universe, and regional footprint. The combined company will be heading to be clear US market leader in the healthcare delivery market and benefit over-proportionally from the strong market growth of healthcare and life science logistics in the US. We are especially grateful that the SLS Group has shown the courage and discipline to support our M&A-schedule with this major acquisition less than three months after Associated Couriers joining the group.”

Thomas Lang, CEO SLS Group: “We are very enthusiastic to support the drive that Matt Silverberg shows in following his growth plans. With the acquisition of HealthEx, Associated Couriers proves to be an accelerator for our global strategy in becoming the leading market player in healthcare and specialized life science logistics services. But we also considerably strengthen our share in the North American market with its promising growth fundamentals.”
