strong, well-respected brand and an engaged, skilled workforce. New Harbor’s

for us. Its track record for successfully executing growth strategies, as well
as its experience with medical products distribution will elevate our business
to the next level, while upholding the high quality, innovation and reliable
service our patients and prescribers expect.”
