ROCHESTER, NY-Carestream Health Inc. announces that Eastman Kodak Co.'s former nondestructive testing group is officially operating as part of Carestream Health.

Now that the purchase is complete, the Health Group is doing business as Carestream Health.

“This is a tremendous opportunity for us to grow our business and serve customers as no other company can," said Martin Graen, general manager of Carestream Health’s non-destructive testing group. “Our customer-focused technology roadmaps are delivering innovative new digital systems and services across industrial markets. We expect our product technology to develop faster and grow stronger as we tap new and more abundant resources as part of Carestream Health.”
