Trivitron Healthcare is committed to providing research-driven technologically advanced yet affordable healthcare products and with this acquisition, the company has further strengthened its manufacturing presence in the USA.

The Kennedy Company was founded in 1976, by Mr. David R. Kennedy, a physicist educated at University of London. While he was employed on the Saturn Rocket Project at the Space Technology Centre in Huntsville, he worked on developing innovative acoustic barriers for NASA.

The Kennedy Company’s 7 acres cutting-edge Technology Park in Scottsboro, Alabama will soon house multiple manufacturing and R&D facilities focusing on Trivitron’s core segments – Medical Imaging, IVD, ICU and Cardiology Equipment & Consumables.

“We are delighted to join the Trivitron Group. I am confident that this merger will benefit both of us and the greater Huntsville area provides the perfect backdrop to expand skilled manufacturing,” said Mr. David R. Kennedy, Founder, The Kennedy Company.

Post integration, the new entity would become a part of Trivitron Healthcare Americas, operating as Kennedy Vinyl for the existing X-ray Shielding and Acoustic Noise Control business and Kennedy Radiology for Radiation Protection Products manufactured in the USA.
