The addition of three new strategic partners will expand AA Medical’s capabilities and reach across the health care asset management, medical device reprocessing and disposition industries
AA Medical (“AA Medical” or “the Company”), a provider of sustainable solutions to both the new and resale medical device markets, today announced three new partnerships with leading companies in the health care asset management, medical device reprocessing and disposition industries.
The Company’s strategic partnerships with Tekyard, a leading healthcare asset management company offering disposition services to medical facilities, and Zantek Medical (“Zantek”), a prominent certified biomed medical device reprocessing company, further strengthen AA Medical’s vision to be a leader within the surgical device market. In addition, AA Medical has partnered with MED-SELL.COM, a leader in the pre-owned medical device industry, forming a powerful alliance poised to redefine the pre-owned medical device and equipment solutions space.
AA Medical works with physicians in over 100 countries and has grown into one of the largest and most respected aftermarket equipment companies in endoscopy, orthopedics and other specialties since its creation in 2010. The Company partnered with Shore Capital Partners (“Shore” or “Shore Capital”), a Chicago-based private equity firm focused on microcap investing, in April 2022 to build a strong and diversified medical reprocessing company. The new partnerships with Tekyard, Zantek and MED-SELL.COM will help accelerate the Company’s long-term growth strategy and vision to be the leading technology-driven medical equipment platform in the United States.

We will continue to create value by converting the equipment our customers no longer need, use, or want into a currency that they can use to purchase equipment they do need.”
Plantz continued, “The partnership between MED-SELL.COM and AA Medical is a homecoming of sorts. Having worked together at a large original equipment manufacturer and having shared a competitive history for several years with Sean, it’s great to be coming back together.
