Kogent Surgical and Katalyst Surgical, sister companies, have been acquired by Carl Zeiss Meditec AG. The Jena, Germany-based multi-national, public company said the acquisition of the two manufacturers of surgical instruments will help strengthen its positioning as a solution provider.
The 100+ jobs at the St. Louis site will stay in St. Louis and grow as part of Zeiss.
Kogent and Katalyst are founded by Gregg Scheller, who took public his previous company, Synergetics.
