COLUMBIA, S.C.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Rhythmlink International, LLC is pleased to announce an exciting new investment partnership with Graham Partners, a Pennsylvania-based private equity firm that specializes in industrial technology and advanced manufacturing businesses.
As a market leading designer and manufacturer of disposable neurodiagnostic devices and consumables, Rhythmlink has experienced significant growth since its founding in 2002, and this investment from Graham will ensure that growth continues along with the innovation and quality that Rhythmlink is known for. The investment was completed on March 15, 2023.
“We’re excited about this next phase of Rhythmlink,” said Shawn Regan, CEO and Co-Founder. “Graham is an excellent partner for us because of their experience in medical technology and healthcare, and we see this as a growth opportunity for us to continue to innovate beyond our current capabilities,” said Regan. “I’m extremely proud of how far we’ve come, and this is a chance for Rhythmlink to expand our business without sacrificing what matters to us – improving patient care in our field of neurodiagnostics.”
This new relationship with Graham follows Rhythmlink’s extremely successful partnership with New Heritage Capital, a Boston-based private equity firm that invested in Rhythmlink in 2019.
