The private shareholders of Whitestone Acquisition Corp. have sold the company to PAUL HARTMANN AG (HARTMANN). Financial details have not been disclosed.
HARTMANN, headquartered in Heidenheim, Germany, is a worldwide leader in wound management, incontinence management and risk prevention products in the operating room.

Formed in 1995, Whitestone annually produces and distributes products for over US$40 million. The corporation primarily serves the institutional long-term care and healthcare markets, markets which are growing 7% a year due to demographic trends.
