Legs 4 Life, LLC Acquiring Venosan North America
LEGS 4 LIFE, LLC ACQUIRES VENOSAN NORTH AMERICA
Purchase will Benefit Medical Community through Greater Patient Compliance, and the Most Comprehensive Line of Products from One Distributor
Asheboro, North Carolina (June 1, 2011) – Legs 4 Life, LLC, the parent company of Ames Walker International, proudly announced today that it has acquired Venosan North America, Venosan’s American brand and distributorship of Venosan’s Swiss made stockings. The acquisition enables Legs 4 Life to become the best solution in the market for patient compliance by offering the largest selection of high quality products at the most affordable price.
“Combining Ames Walker’s expertise in e-commerce with Venosan North America’s established position in medical channels was an exciting undertaking,” said Kaki Zell, Vice President, Sales & Marketing, Legs 4 Life, LLC. “This acquisition will provide greater global brand awareness and reach, not only through the internet, but through a stronger presence in the medical channels as well.”
The extensive home office support and customer service that Ames Walker is known for will be a value-add to the doctors and clinics that are Venosan North America customers. These customers will also have the ability to order all of Venosan and Ames Walker brands through the same distributor.
“Compression hosiery is a rapidly evolving market,” added Zell. “Now we are even better positioned to provide our customers unparalleled service through innovative technology, co-marketing strategies and cost efficiencies.”
Venosan North America was owned by the Salzmann Group, a prominent Switzerland-based company within the compression hosiery industry. They started Venosan North America in 1993 to have some distribution presence in the US markets. Ames Walker will relocate operations to the Venosan North America headquarters in Asheboro, NC where Venosan North America and Ames Walker will operate as divisions of Legs 4 Life, LLC.
