West Palm Beach, Florida – December 2, 2021 – WillowWood Global LLC (“WillowWood,” or the “Company”), a leading designer, manufacturer, and distributor of prosthetic products, today announced that it has entered into a strategic partnership with Blue Sea Capital LLC (“Blue Sea”), a growth-oriented private equity firm.
