ALPHARETTA, GA--(Marketwire - March 05, 2012) -

EndoChoice, Inc. announced today that it has acquired Interactive Optics, Inc., a Nashville-based endoscope repair company. Founded in 1997, Interactive Optics has been an EndoChoice strategic partner for the past four years. Financial details of the transaction were not released.

"This was a strategic acquisition for EndoChoice as we broaden our range of quality services and products for the endoscopy professional," said Mark Gilreath, EndoChoice CEO and Founder. "The technicians at Interactive Optics are simply the best in the industry, and we are pleased these professionals are joining the EndoChoice team."

Interactive Optics has an established national customer base, which it services from its state-of-the-art facility in Nashville. The endoscope repair functions will remain in Nashville after the acquisition.
