Case Study: TransMotion Medical, Inc.

You are here

  • Located in Ocala, FL
  • Founded in 2002  as a subsidiary of EBO Group
  • Designed the TMM3, a chair that was transformative to the durable medical equipment industry, replacing the need for traditional high cost, multipart surgical tables
  • Due to the TMM3’s ability to fit efficiently in confined spaces, hospitals, ambulatory surgical centers, private practices and other health care facilities were able to lower their costs, increase their efficiencies and reduce their footprint by adopting the TMM chair

EdgePoint’s Solution

Through EdgePoint’s buyer development process, they contacted a group of nationally-based strategic buyers interested in absorbing a more sophisticated, highly-engineered product to their equipment offerings. After  a competitive bidding process, EdgePoint identified Winco Mfg., LLC, a durable medical equipment manufacturer. Winco moved upstream in the market utilizing their existing national distribution channels and TransMotion’s revolutionary chair. Through the acquisition, Winco was able to offer their patients the most comprehensive portfolio of durable medical and patient handling equipment available in the market today.

EdgePoint achieved the owner’s objectives:

  • EdgePoint led negotiations, managed the transaction and completed the closing
  • TransMotion received a premium value and financial terms in comparison to those being received within the market, exceeding the Company’s expectations
  • TransMotion’s leadership team was retained to assist in the continued growth and expansion of the business post-transaction
