SARASOTA — Minnesota-based Key Surgical LLC acquired Sarasota-based Encompas Unlimited. Terms of the deal weren't disclosed. 

Key Surgical is a global provider of sterile processing and operating room supplies. Its acquisition of Encompas aims to expand the company's endoscopy product offerings, according to a press release. Encompas is Key Surgical's second acquisition since it merged with Interlock Medizintechnik GmbH last year. 

Encompas was founded more than 30 years ago. It specializes in manufacturing, assembling and distributing endoscopy accessories and supplies. Key Surgical will incorporate Encompas' supplies into its portfolio of more than 3,000 products used by hospitals and surgery centers for patient procedures and cleaning and sterilizing surgical instrumentation. 

"We are excited to broaden our offering to our customers and their patients with the addition of Encompas," says Key Surgical President and COO Brian O'Connell in the statement. "The company has an excellent reputation for offering high-quality products, and we are excited to build on Key Surgical's existing presence in the growing endoscopy market."

Encompas' products will be available from Key Surgical by the end of July.
