Global podiatry and O&P giant Algeos opens in US, offers thousands of products

This month Algeos USA announced the grand opening of its warehouse in Riverside, CA, marking the arrival of Algeos UK into the US market. Algeos UK was established in 1881 and has been owned by the Sheridan family since 1990; other international subsidiaries include Algeos Australia, Algeos India, and Algeos Middle East.

Algeos supplies materials and components to the podiatry, orthopedic, physiotherapy, and shoe-making industries. Algeos sells thousands of products, including its branded product lines: Aortha, which offers the latest material technology for O&P use; Podotech, a range of everyday podiatry products; and Diaped, which has four product areas for the diabetic foot, prevention, diagnosis, management, and education.

Bryan Schloss, Algeos USA president and CEO, said, “Working with the Sheridan family has been a wonderful experience. Their integrity, their market knowledge and their global reach are all impressive.”

Schloss is also the principal of Med Reps USA, a national sales team of 18 reps focused on the podiatry and O&P markets.

“The synergies of Med Reps USA and Algeos are perfect,” Schloss said. “Our sales team covers 40 states and we will be able to service the distributors, labs, podiatrists, and O&P facilities across the country for Algeos USA.”
