Drive, DeVilbiss hammer away at integration
PORT WASHINGTON, N.Y. – Drive Medical has completed a significant portion of its restructuring plan to integrate DeVilbiss Healthcare, the company announced August 14. “Over the next few months, we will be focused on the operational aspects of the integration plan with a renewed focus on innovation and the development of new products,” said Harvey Diamond, CEO of Drive, in a release. The two companies will operate independently in the Americas until the integration is competed, which is expected to happen by the end of October. At that time, customers will be able to order Drive and DeVilbiss products together on one purchase order, through a centralized customer service support center. Drive DeVilbiss Healthcare will have more than 2,000 employees and distribute in more than 80 countries.
