Black & Lizars has announced the acquisition of Clements Hearing Services in Glasgow, which will provide the company with a central location to develop its audiology services.
The deal will see the Scottish optical group take over the running of the 21 year old business and expand its own audiology services, which it offers at a number of practices as well as domiciliary care.
Managing director of Black & Lizars, Michelle le Prevost, explained: “Clements is a state-of-the-art centre of excellence and allows us to offer the highest standard of service to existing and new patients. It will help us explore new routes to market and form the building blocks for future development, including recruitment and training.”
Clements Hearing Services will remain the brand name for the practice and the previous owner, Greg Clements, will stay in his position as senior audiologist.
Mr Clements and his wife, Val Clements, opened the practice in 1996, offering hearing tests, hearing aids, hearing protection services and ear wax removal.
“Greg Clements is a highly respected clinician in the audiology field. We are delighted to have him as part of our team enhancing our gold standard service for audiology to match Black & Lizars’ reputation in optometry,” Ms le Prevost added.
