Steeper Group, Leeds, England, completed the acquisition of the Espire Elbow range from College Park Industries, Warren, Michigan. After a six-month transition phase from the initial purchase in June 2020, Steeper Group and SteeperUSA, San Antonio, Texas, are now the exclusive manufacturers and distributors of the upper-limb prosthetic elbow system. The acquisition does not affect active warranties, and customers should not experience a change in service.
“We are proud of the Espire Elbow and look forward to seeing its continued growth in the industry,” said Bill Carver, College Park president. “Our team coordinated with Steeper on all fronts to guarantee that our customers experience uninterrupted service and continued support with this elbow system.”
