We are excited to announce that Imperial has recently acquired Noritsu Medical Imaging from Noritsu America Corporation.

In 2019, Noritsu Medical Imaging, a division of Noritsu America Corporation, originally acquired R&F Imaging, Inc. (RFI) which was started in 1984 by Rex Fortenberry. Today, Noritsu Medical Imaging offers complete solutions to clients. From room design to continual equipment service, their customers rely on them for every aspect of their radiological needs. This acquisition will allow Imperial to continue expanding their capabilities in Georgia. We are excited about the future and potential of this new chapter for the business.

What Is Changing

“This deal strengthens our ability to provide a world-class customer experience by adding highly skilled engineers and sales consultants who share the same core values that we do,” according to Founder and President of Imperial Imaging, Aaron Pressley. “Our newly acquired customers will find that we are intentional in providing dynamic equipment and service solutions to meet the demands they face on a daily basis,” continues Aaron. Imperial’s existing clients and newly acquired clients will see a stronger team, with more depth, to continue raising the industry bar on how an independent imaging company should operate.


Acquiring Noritsu Medical Imaging, a highly regarded sales and service organization in Georgia, brings two companies together that share the same commitment to providing clients with exceptional customer service.

What Stays the Same

“The people, engineers and sales consultants, who have built solid relationships and trust with their clients will stay the same,” says Aaron. Rex Fortenberry will stay on with Imperial as their Business Development Manager. Aaron states, “we have welcomed the Noritsu Medical Imaging team with open arms to our Imperial family.”

Noritsu America Corporation sought out a buyer who truly appreciates the business, understands how to operate it properly, and is capable of developing its future potential. “We are pleased that Imperial Imaging will carry on the commitment of excellence to our Medical Imaging customers in Georgia” stated Toshitake Takahashi, CEO & President of Noritsu America Corporation.

“We are excited to partner with such a great company. We share the core belief that the value of the business is built on providing the quality and the level of support you expect,” Fortenberry added. “We are grateful that we will be able to continue our innovative work while being supported by Imperial.” 

Imperial, a leading provider of diagnostic medical imaging equipment and services, works with many highly reputable healthcare organizations throughout the southeastern United States. Aaron explains, “Noritsu Medical Imaging was a great company to partner with because they are special – Throughout their 35+ years in business, they have provided clients with quality products and service and competitive prices. We are excited about the future and the potential of this new chapter for the business.”

We look forward to a smooth transition for both Imperial and Noritsu Medical Imaging employees. We hope to continue serving you for many years to come.
