MESA Makes Strategic Investment In MVS Poland To Advance Pan-European Multi-Vendor Offering For Diagnostic Imaging Service, Equipment And Parts

LUGANO, Switzerland and MIKOLOW, Poland, September 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Culminating from a three-year relationship involving operational synergies for diagnostic imaging service and equipment solutions, two of the largest multi-vendor service providers in Europe: Pan-European, Swiss-based Medical Equipment Solutions and Applications (MESA) and Poland-based MVS, have entered into a strategic partnership that significantly increases the commercial and operational offering of the combined entities.

The strategic engagement includes MESA assuming a minority ownership position in MVS, and Sebastian Cienki - Founder, President and CEO of MVS - joining MESA as the Vice President of Pan-European Diagnostic Imaging Service.

"This investment builds upon our strong business relationship in delivering diagnostic imaging service in Poland, expanding our collaboration to enhance MESA's and MVS's delivery of reliable, cost-effective diagnostic imaging service solutions to healthcare providers across Europe," says Rob Piconi, Executive Chairman of MESA Group Holdings, who as part of the deal will take a seat on the managing board of MVS. Sebastian Cienki adds, "This transaction is an excellent opportunity for both MVS and MESA to take a leading role in the Cross-European market in creating the foundations for further development of independent service organizations."

Tom Finn, who joined MESA earlier this year as President and CEO, adds, "The deeper strategic partnership and operations collaboration will enhance MESA's scalability and efficiency in meeting the unprecedented demand across Europe for more reliable system uptime and quality of care for patients and the healthcare providers that support them. The MESA-MVS collaboration strengthens both companies and is a major step toward realising our vision of efficient healthcare service platforms."

Both MESA and MVS have invested over the years in logistics and warehousing operations that Finn refers to as "Centres of Excellence," which are dedicated facilities housing stocks of Diagnostic Imaging equipment and parts along with state-of-the-art testing and repair operations. The companies leverage these centres to provide multi-vendor training of service engineers from across Europe.

Both companies hint at more to come as demand continues to increase for scalable, cost-effective multivendor service solutions. Various diagnostic imaging market reports validate the large, unmet demand for independent service solutions that can transform the way healthcare providers approach their asset management and imaging equipment servicing strategy. MESA's investment in MVS will enable both companies to more rapidly advance the quality of service to healthcare providers that require better system uptime and more cost-effective solutions to meet end-user patient needs in both the public and private sectors.
