Damartex Confirms its Ambitions in the Silver Economy by Expanding in Healthcare Services.
In line with its transformation plan, Damartex announces the acquisition of 95% of the shares of Santéol holding SAS, a home healthcare service provider specializing in respiratory assistance.
A company founded in 2005 in Strasbourg, France, Santéol employs 46 people. Santéol is specialized in the management of patients with chronic or acute breathing disorders. Santéol offers high-quality personalised support, dedicated to the treatment of nocturnal sleep-related breathing disorders (Sleep apnoea) but also chronic pathologies requiring the implementation of oxygen therapy or even non-invasive ventilation at home.
TO BECOME A REFERENCE PLAYER OF THE RESPIRATORY ASSISTANCE AT HOME
The population affected by sleep apnoea syndrome in France is estimated at 3 million people, the vast majority of whom are seniors. This number is expected to increase as a result of demographic evolution. In addition, only one third of patients are currently being treated.
To meet this growing demand, Damartex intends to support Santéol in its development, mainly by opening new branches, and also remains open to other acquisition opportunities.
In line with Damartex’s integration strategy, the management team in place at Santéol, led by Didier Schmitt, will retain the company’s independent management in order to ensure its development, while benefiting from the skills and support of Damartex’s team.
CREATION OF A NEW HEALTHCARE DIVISION
The acquisition of Santéol represents the creation of a new “Healthcare” division, reflecting the group’s desire to become even more firmly established in the Silver economy, a fast-growing sector.
“The creation of the new Healthcare division is the result of a profound reflection on the Group’s development opportunities. We have found among home care providers the same values of well-being and comfort that characterize Damartex. Strongly committed to supporting seniors, we welcome Santéol with enthusiasm and great humility. Santéol’s team has an excellent knowledge of its business and we will be able to contribute Damartex’s Digital expertise” said Patrick Seghin, Chairman of the Management Board of Damartex.
