Our medical equipment division is a preferred supplier of General Electric (GE) Healthcare equipment with which we have several big contracts all over the continent. The medical consumables division is the sole distributor in Africa for a specialized cardiology device that closes the holes in the hearts of paediatric patient, a niche market for a black owned company. Regarding pharmaceuticals, we have grown from strength to strength and plans are firmly in place to be registered for the establishment of a manufacturing plant of which we have a manufacturing and wholesaler license.
Within our first 10 years of existence, our professionalism and expert knowledge allowed us to equip University Hospitals in the Free State, capacitate smaller municipal hospitals and clinics within South Africa, assist in the revitalisation of all the major hospitals in Gauteng and equip the Military with X-ray machines among many other contracts. All this has been archived through our commitment to our vision, perseverance, optimism, resilience, professionalism and good leadership skills.
