Noritsu America Corporation Announces Acquisition of R & F Inc.
Photofinishing Industry Leader adds Medical Imaging to Portfolio
Buena Park, CA— May 13, 2019 —
Today, Noritsu America Corporation announced the acquisition of R & F Imaging Inc., a medical imaging device sales and service company based in Atlanta, GA, with plans to expand the operation nationwide.
“Noritsu has been on the forefront of photographic imaging for the past 60 years and for the last 15 years, has expanded its service division into markets adjacent to its legacy business.” said Go Yoshii, CEO and President at Noritsu America Corporation. “The skill set of our technicians crosses over perfectly to medical imaging devices, and our national footprint provides conveniences to hospital chains, imaging centers, and clinics that regional service providers don’t offer. Recognizing that Noritsu needed medical imaging specific knowledge and experience to enter the market, Noritsu set out to find a partner that could provide the link.”
Go Yoshii continues, “R & F Imaging Inc. is a regional medical device service company that services the greater Atlanta, GA area and has earned a reputation as being resourceful, reliable, and trustworthy. It is because of its success and these company values that Noritsu opened talks with R & F’s president and owner, Rex Fortenberry.”
R & F’s Rex Fortenberry adds, “R & F has a proven business model and we wanted to grow our business into new geographic areas. The timing was right when Noritsu approached us, and we’ve come to an agreement to sell our business but stay on with the company in order to fulfill our vision of creating a premier national service provider. The combination of R & F’s equipment expertise and Noritsu’s service processes and national staff should prove to be a strong offer to health care providers that span large geographical areas.”
