Boas Surgical has acquired Wyoming Valley Prosthetics and Orthotics in Swoyersville, Luzerne County
Boas Surgical has acquired Wyoming Valley Prosthetics and Orthotics in Swoyersville, Luzerne County, effective Monday. Boas manufactures prosthetics (replacement limbs) and orthotics such as foot inserts and knee braces.
President and CEO Jeff Fussner said in a news release that the acquisition allows Boas Surgical to enlarge its business footprint. He said Wyoming Valley Prosthetics has been in business since 1988.
Locally, Boas Surgical, which is headquartered on High Point Boulevard, off Schoenersville and Stoke Park roads in Hanover Township, has Pennsylvania facilities in Allentown and Richland Township in Bucks County, and in New Jersey outside Phillipsburg. The company’s other locations are in six Pennsylvania counties.
Boas Surgical acquired Wyoming Valley Prosthetics from owner Dante Molino, who said he had been searching for an opportunity to join a larger organization. “The more we discussed the idea of joining forces, the more we realized how similar our approach to patient care was,” Molino said.
Boas Surgical, which opened in 1919 in Allentown, has grown to 38 employees, Fussner said. The company acquired six employees from Wyoming Valley Prosthetic, he said.
