VIRGINIA BEACH, Va., May 4, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Fox Three Partners, LLC ("Fox Three"), a private investment company focused on the lower middle market, announced today the acquisition of Burlington Medical Supplies, Inc. ("BMS"). Founded in 1969 and based in Newport News, Virginia, BMS provides a full range of radiation products for medical professionals as well as patient comfort products. Fox Three partnered with Peninsula Capital Partners ("Peninsula"), an investment company specializing in subordinated debt and structured equity investments in superior middle-market companies.
"For over 40 years BMS has been the gold standard in radiation protection products in the medical industry. Their products are vital to providing comfort and protection for doctors, radiation technicians, nurses and patients around the world.
