Founded in 2002 by two emergency medical professionals, Allied 100, LLC capitalized on the shift of consumer purchase behavior and became one of the first companies in the U.S. to sell automated external defibrillators (AEDs) and related parts on their website www.AEDSuperstore.com selling every FDA-cleared AED from every manufacturer.
While the AED business was, and continues to be, the main focus of AED Superstore, the company also sells related products, such as CPR training manikins and supplies. Wanting to create a one-stop shop for companies looking to purchase all of their AEDs and CPR training from a single organization, Allied 100 purchased Annuvia in 2013. Annuvia offered their customers nationwide on-site CPR training and AHA certification in addition to proprietary software call ArchTM, which allowed customers to comply with their state’s Good Samaritan laws and easily manage their AEDs across multiple locations from a single dashboard.
Since 2013, Allied 100 has purchased a number of other companies that are helping to round out their portfolio in an effort to constantly stay steps ahead of the competition and provide a service offering like no other organization in the market. The acquisitions include Avantech in 2014, LifeGuard Medical Solutions and Superior AED in 2016, and CardioReady in 2017.
Allied 100 was acquired by outside equity investors (Thompson Street Capital Partners) in 2012 and was then acquired in 2014 by Ridgemont Equity Partners.
