German private investment company Aton has acquired OrthoScan, an innovator in the orthopaedic imaging market that specialises in mini C-arm products.

ATON already owns Ziehm Imaging Group, a German technology leader in full-size mobile C-Arms

The two will remain as two separate entities, as their main focus covers differing needs.

Aton anticipates that by operating under a joint holding structure, both companies will generate substantial synergies in the future.

OrthoScan will continue to operate under its current name and will be managed by its current senior management team, with Robert Morocco remaining president and CEO.
