CLEVELAND – Compass Health Brands has acquired the Strengthtape brand of kinesiology tape, along with other associated assets from the privately held company Endevr of St. George, Utah. “Strengthtape helps to further expand our portfolio of professional and retail pain management products,” said Jim Hileman, interim CEO and CFO of Compass Health Brands. “By leveraging our extensive sales and logistics network, we expect to have an immediate impact on the sales of the Strengthtape products.” Strengthtape, the official kinesiology tape of the Ironman triathlon, is known for its long-lasting durability and effectiveness on common injuries. The product line includes 35-meter uncut continuous rolls, pre-cut 5-meter rolls, and precut kits. Roscoe Medical, which, along with Carex Health Brands, makes up Compass Health Brands, has had an exclusive distribution agreement with Endevr for more than a year.
