Ellis & Watts Announces Manufacturing Partnership With Lamboo Mobile Medical

BATAVIA, Ohio--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Ellis & Watts Global Industries just announced a new partnership to engineer, manufacture, and service mobile medical imaging facilities for the healthcare markets in the US and Canada. The partnership is with Lamboo Mobile Medical.

Ellis & Watts is a global leader in custom HVAC, portable, and specialty systems engineered for critical performance in harsh environments. Lamboo Mobile Medical is a global leader specializing in engineering and manufacturing mobile and modular healthcare solutions.

With this partnership, Ellis & Watts will provide North American manufacturing of Lamboo’s patented mobile medical designs, which have been used for 15 years in Western Europe, the Middle East, South Africa, and South America.

Mobile medical imaging facilities for use in the US and Canada have already been ordered and will begin shipping in 2Q 2017.

Ellis & Watts will also provide lifecycle support and service for the facilities. The new mobile medical imaging facilities will accommodate a wide range of imaging products available from leading imaging North American OEMs, such as GE (NYSE: GE) and Siemens (ETR:SIE).

“Our strong market share in Europe is evidence of the preference our customers have for our products,” says Joost Lamboo, President of Lamboo Mobile Medical. “In the last few years, we have seen an increase in demand from international customers who also do business in the United States and/or Canada and want us to bring our product to those markets. We are happy to have found a strong partner with Ellis & Watts, which not only has a reputation for quality, but will also provide lifecycle support and service.”

“Ellis & Watts has been evaluating options for reentry into the mobile medical market in North America and is excited for the opportunity to partner with Lamboo Mobile Medical, the global leader in this space,” says Gina Cottrell, President of Ellis & Watts. “Building on our history of quality, we’re now able to add patented panel technology previously unavailable in North America to provide products that are stronger, lighter, and better insulated; the panels are backed by a five-year warranty. These features reduce transportation costs, operating costs, and service intervals, as well as expense for the owner.”
