Montvale NJ, January 4, 2018 – Oncology Services International (OSI), the world’s leading independent service organization for radiation oncology devices, today announced the signing of a cooperation agreement with AEP Linac, a global leader in the distribution of linear accelerator magnetrons, thyratrons and other parts. The agreement gives AEP Linac exclusive distribution of OSI linear accelerator parts in Europe. AEP Linac will also promote OSI Academy training and broker the purchase and removal of linear accelerators by OSI.
“All of us at OSI are excited to formalize our working relationship with the leading supplier of radiation therapy equipment parts in Europe,” stated Richard J. Hall, OSI President and CEO.
OSI Academy is already the leading alternative to OEM training, providing hands-on training for independent and in-house engineers at its training center in New Jersey. The training center includes multiple linac brands and models, including Truebeam.
“The sale and removal of existing linear accelerators delivers better financial returns than trade-ins to the OEM, while also creating an important source of radiation therapy equipment for providers around the world who lack access to new equipment,” commented Hall.
“Our partnership with OSI expands the range of parts and services we provide our customers,” stated Edwin Molenar, manager at AEP International B.V. “We are happy to have our existing work relationship formalized with this agreement.”
The official launch of the agreement took place during the 26th annual meeting of the Northern European Association of Accelerator Engineers at the Netherlands Cancer Institute in Amsterdam.
