ROCKY HILL, Conn. and ST. LOUIS ­­­– Two of the three major players in the complex rehab market have teamed up.

ATG Rehab of Rocky Hill, Conn., and United Seating & Mobility (USM) of St. Louis have merged, a move that the companies anticipate will broaden their network and generate greater stakeholder value, according to a press release.

“The combination of ATG and USM creates a company with the resources to invest in protecting and improving consumer access to complex mobility and the other technologies they require,” stated Bob Gouy, president and CEO of USM, in the release.

ATG and USM will continue to operate under their own names for the time being, but they expect to announce a new name for the combined company over the next few months, according to the release.

Paul Bergantino, president and CEO of ATG, will remain in that role for the combined company, while Gouy will assume the role of executive chairman.

Bergantino stated that the combined company will remain true to its mission of “staying local as we grow.”
