Parsippany-based ophthalmic instruments business buys Missouri company

Katena Products, a Parsippany-based provider of ophthalmic instruments and devices to the health care sector, has acquired a Missouri-based maker of ophthalmic instruments.

Micro-Select, founded in 2005 and based in St. Clair, specializes in making high-precision instruments including forceps, needle holders and speculums, Katena said in a news release.

“The acquisition of Micro-Select is an important addition to Katena’s growing instrument manufacturing operations,” Chief Financial Officer Bob Earley said in a prepared statement. “Micro-Select will be combined with Katena’s November 2019 acquisition of Micro Medical Instruments in St. Louis.”

Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Katena is owned by Audax Private Equity, a Boston-based firm.
