DJO began in 1978 as DonJoy, a small company founded in a Carlsbad, California garage by the Philadelphia Eagles’ offensive line captain, Mark Nordquist and a local lawyer, Ken Reed. Together they named their new company after their wives, Donna and Joy.
DonJoy continued to grow. In 1999, the DonJoy management team arranged a leveraged buyout, changed the name from DonJoy to DJ Orthopedics, and took the company public again in 2001. Over the next several years, the company acquired all or part of seven new companies.
In the first quarter of 2019, Colfax Corporation, a publicly traded, diversified technology company, acquired DJO.
