Longtime investor and board member Ed Van Humbeck and his family have acquired Intelligent Hospital Systems.
The Winnipeg company developed and builds industry-leading pharmacy automation technology, including RIVA, a fully-automated IV compounding system that’s been successfully sold around the world.
The sale is expected to be seamless from an operations standpoint. Customers, employees, vendors and contractors can anticipate business as usual.
The Van Humbecks have been significant investors in Intelligent Hospital Systems, Ltd., (IHS) since 2008. The family founded and later sold the Winnipeg company Vansco Electronics which made high-tech electronic systems for construction machines and other heavy equipment. That company continues to operate in Winnipeg as Parker Hannifin Canada Electronic Controls Division.
The deal reunites Van Humbeck and Dr. Niels Erik Hansen, the CEO of IHS, who was the CEO of Vansco when Van Humbeck sold it to Parker Hannifin in 2008.
"This transaction is vital to IH Systems’ ability to continue implementing its strategy for global growth," said Hansen.
IH Systems manufactures RIVA (robotic intravenous automation), a fully-automated IV compounding system that prepares medications for syringes and IV bags in a contamination free environment.
