Salt Lake City-based Varex Imaging Corp. has acquired the medical imaging business of PerkinElmer Inc. of Santa Clara, California. PerkinElmer develops, manufactures and sells digital detectors that are components in medical and industrial X-ray systems.
The sale price was reported as $276 million, subject to adjustment at closing.
Varex, which was spun off from 65-year-old Varian Medical Systems earlier this year, designs and also manufactures X-ray system components, including tubes and digital flat-panel detectors. The company employs approximately 1,800 people, including 280 that will join the company from PerkinElmer, at manufacturing and service sites in North America, Europe and Asia.
