“With the successful acquisition of AVID, our management team is now fully focused on executing our integration strategy,” said Chief Executive Officer and President Paul D.

The addition of AVID’s custom procedure trays broadens our range of product offerings and establishes a greater clinical presence in both acute care facilities and surgery centers throughout the country. This expansion strengthens our position and relevancy within our markets and is another step forward in positioning Medical Action for future growth in our clinical and patient care product portfolios.”
