Ansell, a provider of health and safety protection solutions, has acquired Sandel Medical Industries.

Ansell will continue the Sandel business under the Ansell Sandel Medical Solutions.

The Sandel product range covers six key product categories – sharps safety, ergonomic safety, medication handling & specimen handling, safety kits and safety products/correct site markers for patients.

The Sandel solutions portfolio allows Ansell to offer hospitals and ambulatory surgery centers solutions to improve safety of the environment of patients and staff and to comply with the regulatory and legislative safety requirements for patients and staff.

Ansell CEO Magnus Nicolin said the acquisition is an important step in Ansell’s strategy to grow in both existing business segments, as well as to expand with integrated solutions in surgical safety.
