Founded in 1993 and based in Flower Mound, TX, ThermoTek provides a broad range of temperature management solutions to the medical and industrial end markets, specifically cold compression devices used in post-orthopedic surgery rehabilitation and cooling units used in industrial applications. The Company leverages its extensive product portfolio with more than 70 issued patents to supply its network of 280+ medical device dealers and industrial OEMs with a variety of custom- and proprietary-branded thermal management and compression products.

Together we can accelerate growth and bring ThermoTek’s long track record of delivering superior precision thermal management solutions and post-operative rehabilitation products to a rapidly-growing market worldwide.”

By parlaying its blue-chip network of Operating Partners and Senior Advisors, Havencrest will seek to expand ThermoTek’s product portfolio by launching new product lines, growing into adjacent medical and industrial markets and acquiring complementary private companies.

“As the founder of several global medical device companies, I am excited to assist Havencrest in this acquisition,” said Havencrest Operating Partner Robert A. Kline, Founding CEO of temperature management medical device leader Medivance Corporation (acquired by Bard Corporation, NYSE: BCR). “ThermoTek’s market-leading technology innovation — as well as its unparalleled customer service — will continue to differentiate the company from its competitors,” according to Mr. Kline, who will serve as ThermoTek’s Advisory Board Chairman and help guide the Company through this next exciting phase of growth.
