OHI Purchase APEX
Teaneck, NJ - March 2, 2015 - Orthotic Holdings Inc. (OHI), a Frazier Healthcare company and a leading comprehensive provider of orthotics and customized footwear, has purchased the Apex Foot Health & Wellness division of Aetrex Worldwide Inc. The new entity will be known as Apex Foot Heath Industries, LLC.

“Our acquisition of Apex represents an important leap forward in OHI’s increasingly comprehensive lower extremity offerings. The resulting benefit to customers and patients alike will be potent and will increase in the months and years to come. OHI will begin immediately devoting the resources necessary for Apex to maintain its leadership position and to reach ever greater heights through new and innovative design and technologies”, said Ivan Sabel, CEO of OHI.

The transition is expected to be seamless and efficient with no disruption to customers and patients. The Aetrex Management team will continue to serve as senior strategic advisors to OHI and the new operation will remain at Apex’s current location in Teaneck, NJ, continuing to provide excellent customer service, support and quality.

“Our decision to sell Apex to OHI would not have been possible in the absence of our twenty year exceptional relationship with OHI and its management. Together, we’ve served thousands of customers and millions of patients whose consequent outcomes have benefitted measurably through the partnership. I’m fully confident that such relationships and patient outcomes will continue to thrive under the OHI umbrella”, said Larry Schwartz, CEO of Aetrex Worldwide, Inc.

The acquisition is expected to fuel higher performance, accelerate product development and drive expansion in key growth markets for OHI to become the industry’s premier lower extremity provider.
